hmm, I think I have lost track when was my last proper posting of my travel trip. One of the places that I have not visited quite long ago is Cameron Highlands. The last time I visited here was during my primary school trip. Hehe and guess its really a long way back. Its also known one of the places that many people love to go for this chill weather up there, eating steamboat, walk at their night market and famous tea plantation. One of the reason did not visit up there is because its pretty boring though.

Decided to pay back a visit here cuz we manage to grab a great hotel deals for that weekend, and it was chaotic during Wesak Day. It was a road trip for all of us whereby KL heading to Cameron and Penang friends coming down to meet.

cameron highland (1)

We reach pretty early so traffic still very smooth.

Some facts about Cameron Highlands is one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations. The size of Singapore, it occupies an area of 712 square kilometres (275 sq mi) in the Titiwangsa Mountains. The Cameron Highlands got its name from Sir William Cameron, a British surveyor who was commissioned by the then colonial government to map out the Pahang-Perak border area in 1885.

In a statement concerning his mapping expedition, Cameron mentioned he saw “a vortex in the mountains, while for a (reasonably) wide area we have gentle slopes and plateau land.”

The green quietude of the Cameron Highlands. When approached, the late Sir Hugh Low, the Resident of Perak (1887–1889), expressed the wish of developing the region into a “sanatorium, health resort and open farmland”. A narrow path to “Cameron’s Land” was then carved through the jungle. Nothing much happened after that. Read More click here [source from Wikipedia]

cameron highland (4)

Upon our arrival, we drove staight up to our hotel to check in and found that our hotel is rather impressive on what we have expected. Hotel De La Ferns Cameron Highlands

cameron highland (5)

Hotel has quite a classic ambiance on the reception area with fire pit and classic high sofas on the area. Staff are pretty friendly and easy check in for us. This hotel is filled with only 75 well design rooms for reservation. .

cameron highland (6)

Our hotel is slightly off or 10 minutes away from the main town of Cameron Highlands and one good thing is that we have a little row of shop next to us that includes eatery and some other shops.

cameron highland (8)

Our room is really spacious as there are 2 rooms in it with one single entrance. It will be a great advantage for huge family. One room is fille dwith 2 queen size bed and another room is filled with 2 single bed.

cameron highland (7)

Unfortunately when comes to toilet for such many people in the room, they only have one. Not to be sad as their toilet are pretty huge too, and basic toiletries.

cameron highland (9)

Our room view is not bad, over look all the greens. . The hotel doesnt have Aircon nor fan. So its kinda hot and the set back about this hotel is that its located next to the main road and its pretty noisy when cars or super bikes pass by. Even worst if some one is racing along that road.

cameron highland (11)

Right after that, we are starving and quickly head to the first market place that we pass by in the morning which is located next to Equatorial Hotel, known as a Morning Market Place.

cameron highland (12)

Cameron Highlands is also well known for their fresh vegetable and Strawberries which is not to be miss.

cameron highland (13)

There are a few types of street food for you to hunt for. From Corns. . .

cameron highland (14)

fish balls, nuggets. .

cameron highland (15)

Fried banana (pisang goreng)

cameron highland (16)

As you walked towards the intersection, you will be greeted with more vendors for you to choose from.

cameron highland (18)


cameron highland (19)

cameron highland (17)

This is what happen when you are starving and you grab some food. .

cameron highland (20)

Fresh Strawberries and Jambu Apple, something pretty unique that with seasoning also. Pretty sweet as some stalls give you tasters.

cameron highland (21)

All these strawberries are pluck fresh from the farms and delivery it over to sell  .. some of it taste light sour and light sweet . .

cameron highland (22)

This is one of the best and we ended up, bought 50 sticks back. . 😀

cameron highland (24)

Pretty sour as you can see Emily’s expression . . and freshing too. In such hot weather here its one of a perfect item for us to hunt for.

cameron highland (23)


cameron highland (25)

Flowers here are very fresh with stricking colours.

cameron highland (26)

Some of my friends did buy some veggies back as the colour and freshness of it  is really good. .

cameron highland (27)

Not only vegetable is fresh, they even sell honey from fresh bee hives chunk and the suprise is, every stall sells it have different taste. Some is thick and sweet, some is mild sweet yet with hint of sourness . .

cameron highland (28)

Good stuff. .

cameron highland (29)

there are 2 types of corns available, steam or bbq with their own special sauce.

cameron highland (30)


cameron highland (31)

Right after the visit of the morning market, we are are heading to one of the best tourist destination which is the BOH Tea Plantation, whereby the entranc is nearby Equatorial Hotel.

cameron highland (32)

Its about a 20 minutes drive deep in through this small hill road and at alot corners every one have to be very considerate to allow each car to pass by. This is how near for both cars to pass by.

cameron highland (33)

Yap, we have to stop here to let some busses to pass and see how close that bus driver make the turning. Impressive right. If you are an inconsiderate driver, you will cause quite a massive traffic and also your car might be damage.

cameron highland (34)

It is not advisable to come here during public holiday as the whole place is pretty hard to find parking spot and also you have to walk quite a distance.

cameron highland (35)

Cars are not able to park up there in the main factory or plantation area and you have to park at the open space carpark or like us, park till the main road residential area. This way up to Sungai Palas Tea Center along with Factory tour if you are keen.

cameron highland (36)

Will need you to do some exercise to hike up abit. .

cameron highland (38)


cameron highland (39)

This is what I mean  a little hike and this is also what happens to you when you dont do light walking or hiking. They are like OMG! kill me please..hahah~

cameron highland (40)

Of course a visit to Cameron Highlands would not be perfect or complete if you do not come by this plantation. What is the big buzz or things to come here is only one thing. They really do have quality tea.


cameron highland (41)

A bit info about Boh Tea Center.

BOH Plantations was founded in 1929 by J.A. Russel, a British businessman during the British colonial era in Malaya. He was optimistic of the tea plantation business due to huge demands despite of the world-wide Great Depression at that time. As a result of the potential, he applied for and was granted a concession of land for his first tea garden in Habu, Cameron Highlands.

Today, BOH Plantations owns three tea gardens – the first garden in Habu, Fairlie Tea Garden and Sungai Palas Tea Garden. To ensure the freshness of its tea products, BOH Plantations also set up a packaging factory near its main garden. BOH tea products are distributed both in domestic and international markets.

The current slogan of BOH tea products is “BOH ada Ummph!” (BOH puts the Ummph!) If you still do remember their TV commercial when you was a kid. (source from cameronhighlandsinfo.com)

cameron highland (42)

Upon reaching the top, you have two options. One you can visit the tea factory or another direction to have a great tea ..

cameron highland (43)

As me and many other visitor walking a round through the factory to see what are their actual process of making tea.

cameron highland (44)


cameron highland (45)


cameron highland (46)


cameron highland (47)


cameron highland (48)

Upon exit, of course like any other tourist area,  you will be greeted with their souvenir shop that sells variety types of tea and I must say that variety of tea that they are selling here are not sell in our normal hypermarket or any chain stalls. Its best for you to grab in here especially on their premium teas. Good Stuff!!

cameron highland (63)

right after the shop, follow the flow then you will reach their special Boh Tea deck area for a cuppa. . .

cameron highland (49)

Then there is this place that is crazy pack with people that I saw many of my friends blog and insta about it. This is what happens when you come during long weekend or public holiday.

cameron highland (51)


cameron highland (52)


cameron highland (53)

We have to queue up at least 30 minutes to reach our turn and the queue was as long as to near toilet already.

cameron highland (54)

Find that their tea pricing are pretty reasonable. . .

cameron highland (55)


cameron highland (56)

Grab some cakes and pastries for our afternoon tea. Nothing to shout about and if you can avoid ordering, please do. Best to come here enjoy their tea.

cameron highland (57)


cameron highland (58)

Bills came to about RM 53 for all those stuff. . .

cameron highland (59)

Tea is the best option here and sure you would not go wrong.

cameron highland (61)

This is what happen when you mess with hungry girls. . .Want to Die ah U!

cameron highland (60)

Although food is not so good, the most important is friends that you are with. 😉

cameron highland (62)

I am sure you are pretty familiar with these scenery as many people do alot posting to FB and Insta thru here.

cameron highland (64)

cameron highland (65)

cameron highland (66)

Jeng jeng jeng, what are we doing? spamming my camera and blog with alot of pictures.



cameron highland (68)


cameron highland (78)

As we are heading back down to the main town, half way thru, we saw this sign board on a strawberry farm, we turn to this one. Moutain STrawberry Farm which is another 10 minutes deep in from the plantation.

cameron highland (71)

Its also another farm that you must visit when you are here. Some farm offer different package as you pay x amount of entrance fee then you can pluck or eat all you can in there, or paying some service fee for some of their services.

cameron highland (69)

This is one of the farm that produce fresh strawberries and we can choose what type of taste you really prefer. Sweet end. Sour end. You have the whole farm to play around and pluck and choose one of the range that you really like then attack from there. They are selling it too.

cameron highland (70)


cameron highland (72)

The service here is amazing with all the trained stuff to do alog of gimic on the photo. They need at least a smart phone camera to do that. what is he actually doing?

cameron highland (73)

He is teaching us to pose then take a picture by putting the strawberries at the front to make it like you are carrying a huge strawberries.

cameron highland (74)


cameron highland (76)

This is what they do. Of course all this comes with a tip at the end. It depends on you~

cameron highland (77)


cameron highland (80)

After that the girls are hungry again whereby another two already done shower and join us after their cycling up here. Up in Cameron Highlands, many people are hunting for steamboat for dinner and we had early dinner. We randomly choose one restaurant to go in and happen to be Restaurant Kwan Kee.

cameron highland (79)

We are all impress how the steamboat edition here is. With high tube breathing and they are using charcoal too . .

cameron highland (81)

Ingredients here are fresh too . .

cameron highland (82)


cameron highland (83)


cameron highland (84)

We choose herbal soup base as the choice to go along under this little chill area. . .

cameron highland (85)

They just pour everything down in there and waiting for them to cook . .

cameron highland (86)


cameron highland (88)

Right after the dinner, we walk over to one of a famous night market which is known as The Brinchang Night Market . A great place to hunt for some street food and get some souvenir.

cameron highland (90)

Its not a everyday thing up there, as this market only appear twice a week, Every Friday and Saturday starting from 4pm and ending  late night. ITs a pretty huge market that they are operating 2 row of tarmac clearings opposite each other across the main road.

cameron highland (89)

This is also another great market that you can see all races selling their stuff all under one street also helping each other ..

cameron highland (92)

freshly roast chicken with charcoal . .

cameron highland (93)

Fried Raddish . .

cameron highland (94)

this is another stall that sells fresh honey . . .

cameron highland (95)

this stall is one of the best also cuz the aroma of the fresh honey nice and sweet. NOt too thick texture.

cameron highland (96)

On the other side of the street, the vendors are selling non food items. . .

cameron highland (97)


cameron highland (98)

and look how bad the traffic is in this area. Best for you to park a bit far and walk over. I have walk 1 side of the street finish and still see this green van.

cameron highland (99)


cameron highland (100)


cameron highland (101)


cameron highland (102)


cameron highland (103)

Another great stall that you must not miss is this Nasi Ayam Kukus. Steam rice with fried chicken. We were super full and the nice smell of the fried chicken that attracted us to this stall and the queue here is pretty long.

cameron highland (104)

Even my best friend Tatt scold us are you crazy. Still eating? Well we make a take away for supper. . .

cameron highland (105)

Once reach hotel, this is what happen when the aroma of the fried chicken attracted them to eat instantly ..

cameron highland (106)

Now see who the commenter is saying. Attacking my portion . . .

cameron highland (107)

At night here is pretty dead and of course you have to entertain yourself. All of them are so serious on building this.

cameron highland (108)

How many of you do actually come up here and pray? In Penang is not only famous for food as Kek Lok Si Temple is also one of the main tourist attraction when you visit Penang. One of the reason that you should visit this place as its one of the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia.

Back to the history of how it was build as the construction of the temple began in 1890 and was inspired by the chief monk of the Goddess of Mercy Temple at Pitt Street. With the support of the consular representative of China in Penang, the project received the sanction of the Emperor Guangxu, who bestowed a tablet and gift of 70,000 volumes of the Imperial Edition of the Buddhist Sutras. (source from wikipedia)

As the temple is still growing and expending, as below is the new section of the temple that building the new bronze Guan Yin statue was purely donations from visitors around the world that have visited this place.

Besides the standing tall statue, every year during Chinese New Year, the whole temple is transform to temple of light that every corner and edge is well light up that make it so obvious to be miss if you are driving around as this temple is sitting at mid hill. During CNY, the temple had attracted many tourist from all around the region to flock at this place as it is only light up during 1 week before through 1 week after CNY.

Of course we took the opportunity to come up here as well. As we reach, then we prayed and then make a good wish for year 2012 ad they have a wish tree that you just purchase these ribbon with many types of specific wish you wanted, good health, wealth, career, family and many more then write your  name behind it.

Usually to hunt for nice food, their location is always hidden some where which usually do not appear in google map. Another restaurant that turn out to be a hit among office worker in the area is this new Songket Restaurant which just started operation few months back. They are situated in a busy road of Jalan Yap Kwan Seng that is directly located behind Tony Romas.

One good thing about this restaurant is that they have alot of free parking around the area and once park its just few steps away.

songket (2)

By the term Songket is a fabric that belongs to the brocade family of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. It is hand-woven in silk or cotton, and intricately patterned with gold or silver threads. The metallic threads stand out against the background cloth to create a shimmering effect. In the weaving process the metallic threads are inserted in between the silk or cotton weft (latitudinal) threads. (source from wikipedia)
