Discovering Malaysia - Cameron Highlands

Thank you Christmas we had a long weekend. Malaysia is a wonderful country they enjoy lot of holidays. Muslim's holidays, Christian holidays, Chinese and Hindus also. At the same time they celebrate Eid (Hari Raya), Deepavalli (Devali), Christ-mess and Chinese new year celebration. A diverse  population with rich culture. So we planned a Trip to Cameron Highlands   a famous picnic spot outside Kuala Lumpur. Its almost 210km from KL and aboout 4-5hours of drive also depends on traffic. You can take Bus fro Cameron Highlands from Puduraya Bus Terminal. Newly constructed and very nice bus station from here you can get bus for almost all Malaysian cities. For CH your bus will take 35Ringgits for VIP Bus. Must check bus timings online its may 8:30 and 4:30. Two buses.

So lets start...

On the bus from KL to CH

Comfortable bus with big seats and large LCD screen.

Some beautiful scenery on the way to Cameron Highlands 

A very beautiful water fall just reaching before Cameron Highlands, If you are on your own drive trust you are lucky to enjoy it. Unfortunately we were on bus so he did  not stop there.

Beautiful river 

Nice scenery to enjoy long 5hrs drive 

Cameron Valley Bharat Tea Farm

These green fields are actually tea farms

Finally in Cameron Highlands, 209km away from KL

There are some good restaurants to hangout but you have to find it 

Map of the places you must visit in Cameron Highlands. There are many Tourist Information Center just walk to them and and them about how much time you have. You can get packages for one day and half day also. You also need negotiate with them they vary from 40Ringgits to 150Ringgits from half day trip to full day tour. Walk to two or three of tourism office you will get the good idea.

A nice Chinese guy to our guide for the half day tour its Cameron Holiday Travels

If you are planning to stay which you will... now you need find a good guest house. I will suggest guest house as they are good and cheap than hotels. Their rate also vary from 150 to 350 per room. And in guest house you can stay 3-4 persons per room. As we were four and got an extra mattress for free.
