You definitely can't get these experiences in Singapore, but they're lying just across the Causeway waiting for you
If you've ever tried to search for "interesting things to do in Malaysia", you'll know that gets you almost nowhere. Sure, the Petronas Towers and the dozens of national parks across the border are nothing short of amazing, but you're on the hunt for something more extravagant and 'out there' - something that will give you considerable bragging rights.
Malaysia is hiding many hidden gems, some of which certainly wouldn't fly if they opened in Singapore. So take a trip across the Causeway and sniff these experiences out.
2. Sleep in an European castle in Berjaya Hills
Now is the best time to get the royal treatment without having to fly halfway across the globe. With the ringgit at a desirable low, you don’t have to be a king to stay in this castle!
Colmar Tropicale is a pseudo-French village furnished with manicured gardens, fountains and even a medieval drawbridge. Ride proudly on a horse or mule, or frolic in the fields like French royalty. For inexplicable reasons, there’s also a Japanese village here where you can take a complete 180-degree turn and totter around in clogs and a kimono – not that we’re complaining!
