Almost forgotten by most tourist and tourist agents ( I blame the more famous Genting Highlands for this ) , on a hill 270 m above sea level sits Colmar Tropicale. It may interest you to know that Colmar was built based on a real French village. Set among the natural forest of Pahang you first get a glimpse of these very unMalaysian like architecture as you near the peak. The selection of colours are brilliant. You can see the faces of folks staring in awe at the buildings as they walk down the street. My last visit doesn't count because I can't remember anything about it at all. Which made this experience the weekend lovely. We were attending a writing retreat which wasn't half as stressful as the earlier meeting in the week re curriculum review.
