Malaysia's beautiful Cameron Highlands is like England's Lake District, but far more exotic. It is one of the country's natural wonders and its largest and most famous hill resort. On this short tour you will see how this highland paradise still retains much of the charm of an English village. Fruits and flowers grow in abundance and there are lots of tea plantations. Three days in the Cameron Highlands make a great add on to any holiday in Malaysia, be it on the beaches of Penang or the vibrant capital of Kuala Lumpur.
Leave Penang by ferry or Penang Bridge to the mainland and from Butterworth you will be driven south to the Perak State and through Simpang Pulai arriving in the Cameron Highlands for lunch. After checking in at your hotel you will be taken on a tour visiting the Rose Garden, tea plantations and vegetable farms. The rest of the evening is free to just be revived by the cool fresh air.
Today is free for you to enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer. There are a number of tours you can take or possibly go for a walk in the rain forest admiring the exotic birds and butterflies and swim in a pool under one of the many waterfalls. You will be staying in the Equatorial Cameron Highlands Resort so there is lots to do if you want to just relax nearer to 'home'.
Have a hearty breakfast at the resort and enjoy the morning relaxing or exploring before leaving at noon and descending the winding road to Tapah to continue your journey south to Kuala Lumpur. Along the way, pass gurgling jungle streams, visit a bamboo basket weaving craft shop, meet aborigines at their homes and see a blow pipe demonstration, and stop at Iskandar waterfalls. You will be dropped off at your Kuala Lumpur hotel in the late afternoon.
