Colmar is in the Alsace region and along the Alsation Wine Route, It is world famous for its spectacularly well preserved Old Town with its square, fountains, churches and museums and Tan Sri Vincent Tan muat have visited it and been so impressed he decided to produce a clone of Colmar right in the middle of the Malaysian jungle!
Colmar in France looks like it has just stepped out from the 17th to 19th centuries as for some fortuitous reason, its historic town centre was never developed or had some buildings razed to build modern 1970s horrors. So really I almost fainted when I went to Colmar in France and now we have Colmar Tropicale at Berjaya Hills, part of Berjaya Hills Resort at Bukit Tinggi close to Genting Resort so you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone!
The cloning is remarkably good though I wouldn't say it is a perfect replica but Colmar Triopicale is worth a visit as it is quite fun and the verdant gardens are a delight. It is compact too as there is only 1 long main street and the buildings are functioning hotels so you can really stay there. Nearby is the grand Le Chateau which looks like something from Loire Valley outside Paris.
Entry is RM 12 for both Colmar and Japanese Garden and everything else but I had to pay for lunch at RM 19.50++ for pepper chicken.
