Malaysia Road Trip Day 2 & 3: Cameron Highlands

Cameron Highlands is one of the most popular tourist destination in Malaysia, and for good reasons too.

It is the highest region in Malaysia, housed the biggest tea plantation, has cool weather and farms growing strawberries and lavender!

It was an 4 hours drive from Port Dickson and before we reached our Strawberry Park Resorts, we passed by this nice little waterfall.

Cameron Highlands is probably one of our favourite part of Malaysia. It’s so refreshing, simple and laid back.

This view is so worth the 8 hours drive up north from Singapore

Brinchang

Brinchang is their main town area lined with many local eateries and restaurants. It is like our pasam malam (flea market) selling lots of souvenirs, street food, fresh produces and flowers from the local farms.

Strawberry Farms

The cooling weather in Cameron Highlands is great for growing strawberries. While it is not as sweet or big as Korea/Japan Strawberry but this is the nearest a strawberry farm can be. Baby E LOVES strawberries. I mean, is there anyone who don’t like it?!

So fresh!

Their peak season is from May-August and most farms allows visitors to enter for strawberry picking. At 50-60 rm/KG, you can pluck a whole basket of strawberries, shiok or not?

 

Lavender Garden

Did you know Cameron Highlands has their own lavender garden?! I mean, I saw they grow alot of flowers, but lavender?

Beautiful colours!

It’s not huge, so don’t expect the likes of those in Japan. It’s not free either, 5rm per adult and 3rm for children.

But still, so prettyyyy!

We didn’t know about the farm as it just opened in 2013. And we were driving out of Cameron Highlands to our next destination, so it was definitely a pleasant surprise.

Overall, it was a relaxing two days stopover at Cameron Highlands. Next to Malacca!
