RAUB: Fancy being surrounded by colourful flowers while having a cup of tea in a colonial-styled house?
This will soon be a reality when the RM4.2 million Fraser's Hill Parks and Garden project is completed in May next year.
Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said various types of flowers would be planted on the 0.8ha park, especially those usually found in temperate countries.
She said at the English-styled resort, visitors would also enjoy different types of tea, including those from Cameron Highlands.
"The park will serve as the latest tourist attraction at Fraser's Hill, which is famous for company retreats and weekend gatherings," said Dr Ng, who launched the project on Sunday.
Azizah Mohd, 50, who had been living in Fraser's Hill for more than 35 years, said well-planned development in the area, like the park being planned, would help boost tourism and woo visitors who wished to escape the city life.
