The Hill Stations of Malaya
S. Robert Aiken
The Dutch apparently originally came up with the idea of trying to create homes away from home for expatriate colonials unable to cope with the 'unbearable' heat and various tropical maladies associated with the tropics. This fascinating book looks at how the British set up such isolating enclaves in the Malaya of their time. It is interesting to note that Penang Hill's use as a hill station predated even the more well known hill stations of India. 84 pages. The contents include the following chapters :
