A popular weekend getaway in Malaysia, the Cameron Highlands area is known for its tea plantations, rare flora and fauna and abundance of strawberry farms. Nestled in the Titiwangsa Mountains, the region has a year-round cool temperature and is a nice respite after visiting the steaming jungle or the hectic streets of Kuala Lumpur.
The collection of towns in the Cameron Highlands used to be a hill station in the 1930s, developed by the British to escape the sweltering heat of the lowlands. You can still see their Tudor-style buildings and army jeeps everywhere, but the area is now full of resorts instead of barracks.
In Brinchang and Tanah Rata, the larger towns in the Highlands, there are restaurants, Internet cafés and tour agencies everywhere you look. Start with the Time Tunnel museum in Brinchang, and learn a little local history through photographs and cultural artifacts.
Book a combined tour to a tea plantation, fruit farm and butterfly aviary. The scenic drive through the hills is an experience by itself and guides often stop at roadside stalls so you can buy souvenirs or try some “nasi lemak” or other Malaysian food.
Another popular day trip is visiting Malaysia’s native people, the Orang Asli. Listen to the nose flute or try your luck at shooting an arrow. Your guide will try to locate the rare, stemless Rafflesia arnoldii. The world’s largest flower blooms for just one week, so seeing its massive petals is very special.
Keen hikers will also enjoy the Mossy Forest Walk on the misty Gunung Brinchang mountain. Afterwards, take your off muddy boots to view the Sam Poh Buddhist Temple in Brinchang.
For dinner, visit an Indian curry house or order a “steamboat” and boil your noodles, vegetable and seafood on the spot.
The Cameron Highlands are about 200 kilometers (120 miles) north from Kuala Lumpur. If you don’t feel comfortable driving the winding mountain roads, you can take a bus from Kuala Lumpur to the highlands.
Good attentive service. Too near to the main road for the junior suite.
Court séjour de deux nuits mais nous avons bien apprécié l’endroit. Situé au bout d’une petite route montante, l’endroit est tranquille. Nous avons cependant eu des voisins très bruyants la première nuit car bien que l’aménagement soit très joli, l’insonorisation laisse à désirer. Bon accueil et ...
Situated in Brinchang, this guesthouse is within a 10-minute walk of Ee Feng Gu Bee Farm, Raju Hill Strawberry Farm and Kea Farm. Cameron Highland Butterfly Farm and Cactus Point are also within 15 minutes.
Very nice Colonial setting. Quaint looking with a lot of charm. Only downside was noise from the main road
The room is spacious , the surrounding makes us feel like we are in overseas .
Pretty traditional design hotel in a great location far from the noisy town centre yet easily walkable there. Comfortable clean room & nice breakfast. Only complaint was they forgot to make up the room. Tanah Rata itself has a cool and relaxing ambience. Good for walks.
The hotel is well located within a 5-minutes walk to the bus terminal & taxi office of Tanah Rata. It's also located right in the mall so self-service laundry, food and amenities are all easily accessed from the hotel. The room we had has a beautiful view into the mountains, just remember that you ...
