What's Up In Fraser's Hill?

Rising more than 1000m above sea level on the Titiwangsa Range, and straddling the Pahang-Selangor border, Fraser’s Hill is a highland rainforest area that is a popular ecotourism getaway for many. The sudden demolition of both the colonial-style Maybank Lodge and Jelai Resort last month, and the proposed construction of a 15-storey building Resort & Spa on the site has shocked residents. Residents are calling for a review of the proposed development, which is almost three times taller than anything else on Fraser's Hill. We find out more from Nik Jassmin Hew and Sean Yap, who are from Persatuan Alam dan Warisan Bukit Fraser.
