When Kuala Lumpur's heat becomes unbearable, locals and expats head to Berjaya Hills, formerly known as Bukit Tinggi.
The name was changed to Berjaya Hills after the company developed the place. It is just an hour's drive from KL and makes for a pleasant weekend getaway.
One weekend, when we were still living in KL, we went there and stayed at Colmar Tropicale in Berjaya Hills. It's a french-themed resort complete with medieval french villages.

There are entertainments and other activities to make up for the outdated facilities. And if you're like me, being with the family on a lazy, breezy, foodie weekend is enough to make you smile.
