Mini Trip 3 : Cameron Highland

Click here for credits

It's been years since our last trip to this highland and we love the weather so much and the away from city air. Since Gerald is back and the Brinchang pent-house is available for use, I planned this short family trip to Cameron Highland. I extend the invites to Tina & the brats (Rachel, Annabelle & Joshua) *Gerald's sis family* since the kids love the highland as well.

1st Day:

We leave KL around 9am and head toward the North South Highway towards the new road up the hill (was told that it's wider & easier than the old road) but I dun feel like using that road again. Maybe because the Wira is so under power when climbing up the hill. It feels like a tortoise man ...... & since I am an impatient person on the road, I practically grumble all the way till I reach Brinchang. By then, we were all starved and head to Tanah Rata for lunch and check into the pent-house at Brinchang.

Since it's cold (coz raining), we decided to have steamboat at Tringkap where we found this restaurant that serve good & reasonable priced steamboat from our last visit. All we need is just call them and order in advance. It's such a yummy & warm dinner (^-^). After a heavy dinner, the best things to do is walk the night market and buy somemore food as supper *LOL*.

Here's the must try food:

2nd Day:

The next morning, I go for the hunt of the yummylicious fried pumpkin balls while the rest just enjoy the bargains for veges, fruits & dried products from Cameron. After the morning session (no breakfast), we packed our bags & check out from the hotel. It was raining zoo then & cold but we must leave the place before 1pm, else, the road will be heavy with traffic :( So, we berave the rain & made our way to Tanah Rata for quick lunch before going down the hill. The journey down the hill was fast & we reach KL in no time.

Attractions in Cameron Highland:

  1. Strawberry Farm : There're too many farm to choose to go & buy the fresh strawberry, strawberry jam & dried strawberry in honey (new additions).
  2. Cactus Valley : It's just located opposite our place (Star Regency) but we never go there. Instead, we went up towards Tringkap to see the cactus for sale :p
  3. Night Market : It's just below our place as well & I love to walk this night market. I can get alot of food to eat & a good place to shop for fresh veges & fruits. I managed to bought the strawberry jams & some fried vege for supper.
  4. Bees & Butterflies Farm : Bee Farm is free entrance and a good place to visit if you're interested in looking at the busy bees & buying the bees products. Butterfly Farm is almost the same as those in KL, so, we skipped that this round.
  5. Pasar : There're a few market that sells fresh veges, fruits & flowers along the Brinchang - Tringkap road. All you need is to lookout for the stalls in your left & right.
