Maxwell Hill, Perak

Bukit Larut, formerly known as Maxwell Hill, is a renowned Malaysian highland destination. Located at an elevation of 1,250 metres above sea level, approximately 10 kilometers from Taiping town in Perak; it is the wettest region in the world, with the highest rainfall. Bukit Larut is also home to Malaysia's oldest hill station, which was designed in 1884 by William Edward Maxwell, a British Assistant Resident in Perak, to provide a cool refuge for colonial officials. Bukit Larut is a perfect choice for those seeking to avoid the heat and humidity of Malaysia's lowlands, with daily temperatures varying from 10 to 25 degrees Celsius.

Penang Hill, Penang

Bukit Bendera, located 821 metres above Penang's capital, is known by islanders and is usually five degrees cooler than Georgetown. Since it is Penang's only remaining patch of tropical rainforest, the flora and fauna here have been conserved since 1960. Although it is less well-known compared to the rest, but due to its cooler climate, it is one of Penang's most popular tourist destinations. On a clear day, you can see the mountains of Langkawi and north Kedah from the top of Penang Hill, but the nighttime sight of lit-up Georgetown is particularly rewarding.
