Fraser's Hill

Hill stations played a vital role in the social life of Europeans in Malaya. They allowed the British to escape the oppressive heat and humidity. Often, these hill stations were mini replicas of villages back in Britain. These stations used to be popular in the summers, but with the advent of the car, it was possible to sneak away to them for the weekends as well.
