Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Cameron Highlands in Malaysia is the most popular of the highland retreats in Malaysia. Located at almost 2,000 meters at its highest point, Camerons offers visitors a moderate climate with daytime temperatures averaging around 25°C and 18°C at night. This makes the environment conducive for growing continental plants, fruits and vegetables while providing a cool escape for city-dwellers.The township of Camerons is itself divided into Tanah Rata, Brinchang and Ringlet.

In October 2008 we had a weekend trip to Cameron Highlands to explore the area and relax in the cooler temperatures.

The Smokehouse Hotel & Restaurant

We stopped firstly at The Smokehouse Hotel & Restaurant to enjoy their traditional English tea and scones

Cameron Highlands Resort

We stayed at the Cameron Highlands Resort which although was the best hotel and highest star rated accommodation turned out to be disappointing with dirty rooms and very poor food in the restaurant.

Brinchang Night Market

In the evening we visited Brinchang where they have a night market with a wide variety of local foods to eat and many vegetables and fruits all grown in the area.

Jungle Trek

The next day we had arranged a jungle trek with a local wildlife specialist. This turned out to be really interesting with our guide pointing out all the species in the jungle and giving us many details about the wildlife.

Bharat Tea Plantation

On our return drive back down we stopped at the Bharat Tea Plantation and took a walk through the tea plantations. The scenery here was beautiful and it was fascinating to see the tea bushes so closely.
