Cameron Highland

Cameron Highlands is located on the Titiwangsa Range at about 1500 metres above sea-level, the temperature here can drop to 16 ˚C or lower at certain times. A lot of nice and beautiful sceneries. People used to go there just to escape from hectic city life and indulge themselves in a cool and calming breeze. My family and I went there last year... just to get together and enjoy ourselves.

If you came from Kuala Lumpur, you can get there from Tapah (Perak) exit or Simpang Pulai exit of PLUS Highway, or use the long winding ordinary road. I suggest you use Simpang Pulai exit because it's more comfortable especially if you bring your kids along.  If you came from the east, you can get there from Gua Musang new road.

 On the way up the hills, we stop-by a strawberry farm and tasted the sweet and sour fruit..


My big family... at BOH Tea Plantation, Cameron Highlands

Some of the attraction in Cameron Highlands are the tea plantation. The most famous one is BOH Tea Plantation.

This is the other tea plantion (Cameron Bharat Plantation) or Cameron Valley Tea Plantation.

It's nice to have a cup of tea while enjoying the spectacular views, don't you think? It was drizzling at that time and the air was wet and cool.
The cool temperature in Cameron Highlands which rarely drops below 10°C or climbs above 21°C, and the fertile area is generous for vegetables growth. Flowers are also cultivated for sale nationwide and wild flowers bloom everywhere.

 One of the orchid species cultivated in a flower nursery ready for sale. Some of the flowers cultivated here are exported overseas such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.

Most of the vegetebles cultivated here are for export to Singapore and local market. As you can see here are the spring unions, lots of them!
The markets, they sell a lot of  fruits and vegetables freshly picked form farm. Those markets are run by the farm owners themselves.. Hmmm... yum.. yum...

Well, thats the only places I visit during the 2D/1N stay... more info please visit the OFFICIAL site
