Cameron Highlands tour packages & holidays
Cameron Highland is the place for you if you would like to travel the unbeaten path or just want to find a beautiful spot that is exotic and interesting. Located in West Malaysia, about 120 miles from the capital of Kuala Lumpur, the Cameron Highlands is a lush area full of hills on which several towns are situated. For traveling foodies, the Cameron Highlands offers plenty of farms to sample and buy fresh fruits and vegetables. There are several popular outdoor markets with street vendors serving local fare, from Malay, Indian, Chinese and even Western food. Do not forget to go to the popular night market of Brinchang. A must see on your trip are any of the farms and plantations that grow anything from strawberries to tea to honey. Another must see is the Mossy Forest, where moss-carpeted boardwalks snake you through the tropical rainforest, you may even find the world's largest flower there.
One of the popular places to stay is the SmokeHouse Hotel & Restaurant. Built in the Tudor-style this hotel offers their guests traditional English fare from breakfast to tea. They also offer local tours of the highlands and taxis to take you to wherever you wish to visit. Another place to stay is the Cameron Highlands Resort where any golfer can try their hand at the 18-hole course while other members of the family can relax at the spa.
If you are into seeing how the locals celebrate holidays and other festivities, and are not bothered by crowds and an occasional traffic jam, then go during school vacation and holidays, usually the months of December and June. If you prefer a quieter time to explore the highlands, then travel during the off-peak season, usually in February. February is also when the weather switches from the rainy season to the dry season. However, the temperature stays relatively cool throughout the year. Comfortable shoes for hikers are a must, as is an umbrella in case there is a chance of rain. The Cameron Highlands is full of interesting things to see and do and any vacationer, backpacker or family, will find it a worthwhile trip.
