My good friend Tony and his wife Erin called to invite us for a holiday. We chose to go to Cameron Highlands to enjoy the cool climate and fresh air of the highlands

 Cameron Highlands is a highland region located about 300 km north of my home in Subang Jaya. It is the largest and most famous hill resort in the country. This highland paradise still retains much of the charm of a typical English colonial home

We took a slow leisure drive, dropping by at Bidor for lunch to savour the famous herbal roast duck soup noodle. We used the new entrance Simpang Pulai and drove up as high as 1500 metres above sea-level reaching one of the peaks of the main range of Peninsular Malaysia, High above here on the highlands the temperature plunged as low as 16 ˚C.

So many things have changed compared to thirty years ago when I first visited this holiday resort after I left school. During that time, there were not many houses, hotels and apartments and even then there were not so many vegetable farms and gardens. It was just a forest with trees and plants. Nowadays there are too much land clearings for new development around the towns of Tanah Rata and Brinchang. Many have complained that the weather was affected and it was not so cold like in the earliest days

We stayed three days and 2 night at a holiday apartment,. Everywhere we walked we can see flowers and they are bigger and color rich. There were too many key attracting places to look around but we just visited some in Cameron Highlands including, strawberry farms, rose gardens and vegetable gardens, Cactus Point, and the Boh Tea Plantation.

At the Boh Sungai Palas Tea Centre, we order a cup of tea, sitting and chatting. The teahouse which was overlooking the valley while sipping a cup hot freshly brewed tea was truely relaxing

More pictures to come in my next posting and stay tune!

  1. Very nice scenery in Cameron Highlands. I’m sure you had a good holiday. Having a cup of tea overlooking the valley of Boh Tea plantations would be something to experience. It’s still much cooler than down in the city. An environment to soothe the nerves.

  2. Dale Ng,
    Thanks! The temperature there is still good enough to relax and cool off my body temperature , work strees from down in the city.

  5. It is very interesting to see your pictures and read about Cameron Highlands. The hills with green fields (what is growing there?) look so interesting different from Denmark, a very flat Country.

    I am not sure the land what they used for but the farmers there used to grow cabbage, lattuce. tomato,vrocoli, cauli flowers and celery…

  8. Chrisy,
    Your pictures of Cameron Highlands are delightful. We don’t have anything so pretty here in Florida because we don’t have the hills. We are almost at sea level. You do a fine descriptive narrative in each of your posts. I enjoy every word and every picture …THANKS!

  9. Chrisy,
    I will be back posting very soon. I did an interesting one yesterday about the broken lens and the pictures. We also get our new puppy, Lemley, on Dec. 16th. Then I will post his picture for sure.
    I look forward to all your posts.
