Cameron Highlands : English Tea & Scones, Strawberry & Chill

Cameron Highlands situated in the state of Pahang, 200km from Kuala Lumpur. As the name (“highlands”) suggest the mean annual temperature of the resort is about 18 °C During the day, the temperature seldom rises above 25 °C; at night, it can sometimes drop to as low as 9 °C (according to Wiki). Some dubbed Cameron Highlands as “Little England”.
I’d call Cameron Highlands as “Little England” especially if you visit Smoked House. I was there with Piotr (Polish), Hi (German) and Nick (Australian). We visited the beautiful panoramic Boh Tea Plantation at Sungai Palas and few other places like Bee Garden, Strawberry Farm and of course enjoyed a typical English tea time with scones (they really have good scones there!) and local strawberry preserved.
There are quite few tracks for hiking in Cameron Highlands for people who loves hiking in the middle of the woods. You may want to go to Mozzy Forest and witness the largest flower in the world – Rafflesia.
For me, 2 nights in Cameron Highlands is enough as it was pretty a quiet town especially at night. But if you come during weekends, there are huge local night market in Brinchang area (5km away or so from Tanah Rata where most of the backpackers stay).
