It was not our original plan to visit the Cameron Highlands until we checked with the taxi driver while we were on the way to Malacca that it was only about 4 hours drive (minus traffic) from Kuala Lumpur. I have always wanted to go to Cameron Highlands for its beautiful scenery, tranquility and the cool fresh air. Hence, without further hesitation, we hired a tour guide the following morning for a day trip. We left the hotel in KL as early as 5am to avoid traffic and reached the peak slightly just before 10am.
One of the must visit places in Cameron Highlands is ofcourse the Boh Tea Plantation which apparently is the largest black tea manufacturer in Malaysia. Not a big fan of tea but, for me, visiting the plantation is like a dream comes true. Although the weather was not as cold as expected but a wind breaker would come in handy especially for young children.
