    Situated on a hilltop overlooking the Lake Gardens, Carcosa Seri Negara was once the residence of the British state representatives. It features landscaped gardens, a tennis court, and golf facilities. has a fe of guest rooms, all of which are decorated in Victorian style and feature spacious seating areas and balconies with garden views. I have taken the liberty to attach a few pictures. Please do let me know if you are interested in this location, following which we can make enquiries for using this as a filming location.

    Reiko San,
    Yes, Malaysia can offer plenty of colonial type houses from single or double stories to offices and shop lots. Most are in Penang, Ipoh Perak or Malacca. Most are film friendly and available for shooting. Some are at hill resorts and also at plantations.
    Please tell us your preferences and we will submit to you.
