Whether you stay in this beautiful French-themed resort or just a day trip, you should come and explore around here. There are a few restaurants and shops to stop by and the place is perfect for you to take some nice pictures. I recommend to visit this place during Christmas time. it is so beautiful with a lot of decorations and lights.

4. Visiting the Adventure Park
If you are looking for more extreme activities, you can come to the adventure park that offers fun activities such as paintball, canopy walking, a flying fox and rope climbing etc.
Bukit Tinggi Berjaya Hills is really suitable for families or a couple trip. I recommend to just stay for a night or a day trip because there are not many activities to do around there. You can easily finish all the activities in 1 or 2 days. Coming via shuttle transfer to Berjaya Hills is a good choice as you can avoid paying the entrance and parking fee and get free entrance tickets to the Japanese Village and Botanical Gardens. Also, there is a free shuttle bus provided to go to the activities venue so you do not have to worry if you did not drive a car to Berjaya Hills.
