Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
The Cameron Highlands (I really like their website) are the highest place in mainland Malaysia, so are also the coolest. Because of the cooler climate they grow a wide variety of fruit and veg (many strawberry’s) in the Highlands. They also have vast tea plantations that are spread over some very steep hills (erm… mountains).
I must admit I had been surprised by the coolness of Malaysia before visiting the Highlands. I knew we had (purposely) picked one of the coolest times of year but I had still expected things to be hotter – but the Cameron Highlands were still a welcome break.
Whilst in the Highlands we visited the Boh Teh plantation, went to a butterfly farm and saw some giant bugs (and butterflies), had a cream tea at an English style pub, ate some tasty Indian meals, and went to stand on the peak Gunung Brinchang – the highest place in Malaysia that’s accessible by road.
