In April, I went to Cameron Highlands with Simon, Sebas and Ivy! It was a short 3 days 2 nights trip and it was our very first trip together.
Simon and I used to like Cameron Highlands, we were there a few years ago when we couldnt afford to go anywhere except for Malaysia. We were amazed with the weather, the fresh organic vegetables and the fresh crisp air. But this was what it feels like a few years back. Cameron highlands now is alot different. Probably much more commercialized now which explains the constructions and pollution. Well the food is still good though. Anything strawberry or vegetables related is heaven and the steamboat is the best.
Nevertheless it was still a fun trip even though the bus journey took a lot longer than the usual. Because.it.was.Public.holiday – good friday.
So this was quite a last minute trip.. the 4 of us were supposed to go taiwan in October but your girl here tendered, found a New job and hence screw up the plan. We were lucky enough to get tickets. Very lucky indeed because it was the exact last 4tickets for the round trip.

We had to go with 2 different bus operators though, Un Express & Travel and Konsortium. Altogether the round trip tickets are about close to $100 per pax.
So as I mentioned, it was a really long trip. Usually the trip would take about 10hours.. but because it was the public holidays, it took us about 15hours to reach our hotel. The jam was super crazy. The bus just didn’t move at all, it didn’t move for 3 freaking hours!! Lesson learnt, never take bus to Malaysia again during public holidays.
And here this is where the summary starts.
Day 1. Checked into our hotel at Cameron Highlands Resort Hotel at Tanah Rata.
Lunch was at Restoran Ferm Nyonya. Steamboat is a must have here in Cameron Highlands. The soup base is damn sick. So so so so good.
78A-D, Jalan Camellia 4, Cameron Highland, 39000 Tanah Rata, Pahang, Malaysia
After our very good lunch, we walked to Tanah Rata bus terminal. Our original plan was to take a bus to the Brinchang night market but we ended up with a half day tour for the next day. Oh we cab to the night market in the end. Book our tour with Unititi Express Service.
Here we are at Brinchang Night Market! Can see mountains from here!
We ate quite abit over here. Got crispy pancake.
Its very beautiful at night.
After night market, we cab back to Tanah Rata and head to starbucks. Sebas and Ivy bought Marrybrown for dinner and Simon and I had an early night.
2nd day, Hotel breakfast.
Couple travel couple date!
There’s an egg counter too! With all kinds of eggs!
After our breakfast and preparation, we went down to our hotel lobby to find our tour bus and driver.
Also learnt a few things about herbs and plants from the tour guide.
We queued for an hour and still cant get seats. So we just ordered ice tea and chicken pie to takeaway.
our chicken pie!
Then we came to this small shop to get snacks cos we are starving.
Also walk past the Smokehouse Hotel. I wanted to stay here actually but it’s very out of the way. 🙁
We honestly don’t know if it’s clean anot but we ate these anyway. All 4 of us were like competing to see who got the smallest shrimp. LOL.
After our ‘afternoon tea’, we cab back to Barracks Cafe (very near our hotel) and had the most delicious chicken chop in our life.
Once again, thank you for reading! 😀 and i cant wait for my next holiday!
