Japanese Garden in a Tropical Forest

Went for a short trip last weekend to Bukit Tinggi. Now that petrol price increased, Zaini sure didn't want to drive far. :D

Among the attractions there, Rabbit Park (entrance fee RM3), Horse Rides, the French Village and of course, the Japanese Tea House and Garden.

Entrance to all the parks (Colmar Tropicale, Japanese Gardens & Botanic Park) is RM16 for adults and RM8 for children. As we stayed in Meranti Park Suite, we got complimentary entrance tickets. Not too sure whether those staying at Colmar gets one or not.

Don't need to travel all the way to Japan to visit a Japanese Garden or to experience a Tea Ceremony. At Bukit Tinggi (just a 45 minutes drive from KL), one can do both.

We didn't join the tea ceremony but for those interested, the kimono rental is RM20 and the tea ceremony is at RM28 per person. (You have to rent the kimono to experience the tea ceremony).

  1. Wow! Didn't realised that there's a Japanese Garden in the vicinity of KL. So is there an actual Japanese enclave over there?

  2. Hmm, I never knew that Bukit Tinggi has a Japanese Garden. Looks like a nice place to relax.

  3. @C K,
    it's actually located in Pahang, but quite near to KL.

    Not too sure about any Japanese enclave, but near where I work (in Taman Seputeh, there is a Japan Club - school and all, there)I know you can find Japanese housewives easily at Jusco Mid Valley. :-)

    @Jesie,
    Too quiet for my taste. :D

  5. Tea Ceremony? Urgh, I have the chance to do it for free here and I won't. I can't sit seiza style for more than a minute.

    Cool photos though!
