Gasing

Spinning Top

Gasing is a traditional game of spinning tops, usually played by children in local villages during their free time. At Bukit Fraser, visitors can try their hand at this easy game at a small complex along Jalan High Pines for cheap rates. Here, the game is played on a flat but slightly sandy court housed underneath a large gazebo. The 'Gasing', made from wood, is made to spin on its axis with a sharp pull of the string - the top that rotates the longest time wins in a match with other tops wins. Facing the court is a small watchtower that visitors can climb for a view of the plants, trees and other surroundings - Jelai Bungalow lies directly at the back of this complex.
