Kuala Kubu Bharu (affectionately known as ‘KKB’) is a small town near Fraser’s Hill. The Sungai Selangor Dam is located in this quiet little town, which has a beautiful view of the night sky and a lake with crystal clear water. Due to its relatively remote location, it’s the perfect spot to park and gaze at meteors flying through the night sky.

We cannot mention beautiful scenery without thinking of the famous Broga Hill. This popular hill of course requires a relatively easy hike to get to the top, but you will be greeted with a stunning view of the night sky. Perfect for checking out the meteor shower!

If you’re up for it, you can even camp out at the top of the hill and wait for the gorgeous sunrise, too!

5. Bukit Tabur



Many know Bukit Tabur to be an ideal hiking spot, but did you know it’s also a perfect place to go out stargazing? Bukit Tabur takes about an hour-long hike to reach the top, but the view is undoubtedly worth it.

With a choice of either East or West hills, your view of the night sky will definitely be amazing when you reach the top, no matter which side you pick. Be careful when hiking, though! We’ve heard this particular hill can be pretty slippery on your way down!

 

So, now that you know of some spots to visit for the perfect view of the Perseid meteor shower, we’re sure your weekend plans have been sorted! You’re welcome! 😉
