What You Can Expect
Depart Kuala Lumpur in the early morning for a 2.5-hour drive to Tanah Ratah, the main town of Cameron Highlands, one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations. Cameron Highlands is known for its tea plantations, vegetable farms, wild animals and serene lakes.
On your way up, admire the relaxing Lata Iskandar waterfall, the verdant fern trees and the tranquil lakes. You’ll drive pass Tanah Rata, the main town of the Highlands, and see the streets lined with restaurants and old-fashioned shops. At noon, you’ll arrive in Cameron Highlands. Situated 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) above sea level, Cameron Highlands is the ideal place for vegetation to grow. In the afternoon, visit a tea plantation and learn about the region’s unique tea. Sit inside the tea center and enjoy a beautiful view of the valley full of tea plants and sip a cup of smooth, mellow tea.
In the evening, you’ll be free to explore the area on your own. Tonight, you’ll stay at Strawberry Park Resort, an upscale hotel in the hills west of Brinchang.

Day 2: Cameron Highlands - Kuala Lumpur (B)
In the morning, visit an outdoor agriculture market selling various fruits and vegetables. Then we’ll visit farmers working in a vegetable farm and learn more about the agricultural process. Explore the colorful flower gardens nearby and then walk around the Sam Poh Temple, a colorful Buddhist Temple. After our morning tour, we’ll make our way back to Kuala Lumpur.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this region. As we were the only 2 people on this particular trip we were able to do and see what interested us. Our guide was very informative and went out of his way to show us all the area had to offer. The Tea Plantation visit with tasting was one of the highlights and we also found the museum, telling the history of the area , most interesting. The only downside for us was the part of the journey to and from the Cameron Highlands. After leaving the motorway, it is almost 40 miles of continuous bends and, if you are not a good traveller, this can be quite an ordeal. This should perhaps be mentioned in the description of the trip.
The tourist guide was okay and was able to show us around. It should be a lot better if the driver and guide are two different persons so that he will not worry about parking his vehicle and be able to come with us in tour. Lunch and Dinner were included in my package but did not get one.
