Boh Tea Plantation
Take a tour of the Boh Tea Plantation, one of Malaysia’s most famous tea brands, and learn how to brew their signature teas yourself! You can even stock up on a few tea bags during your trip. If you’re more of a botany enthusiast, Mrs. Robertson’s Rose Garden is sure to be up your alley! You will find several species of roses here, such as the Pink Queen Victoria and Maid of Hearts.
Other places of attractions you can visit are the Lavender Gardens, Cactus Valley, Ee Feng Gu Honey Bee Farm, Butterfly Farm, and Rajuu’s Hill Strawberry Farm.
Mah Meri People's Orang Asli Villages
Learn about the less-known Mah Meri people, an indigenous group of people hailing from the Carey Islands of Malaysia. They are known to produce some interesting artwork that are sure to catch the eye of any art lover. Aside from statues and masks, they are known to produce sculptures that are both unique and somewhat eerie.
You can also tour the Orang Asli villages with a guide. Upon request, they can take you to trek to the villages in more remote areas.
Cameron Highlands has no shortage of historical significance. Visit the Time Tunnel, a museum that will – of course – take you back in time for a look into Malaysia’s past. You will find several items of the past in this museum, from vintage signs and postcards to photographs and even a vintage barber’s chair!
Other than that, admire the beautiful temples that call the highlands home such as Sam Poh Temple and Sri Thandayuthapani Swamy Temple.
One of the highest points in Cameron Highlands, the Mossy Forest is a place you don’t want to miss if you’re a plant enthusiast. Thanks to the low-lying mist, several species of plants also thrive in the forest.
Rafflesia flowers can also be found in the area around the highlands, notably in the Blue Valley, which is an hour away from the main town in Cameron Highlands. Though it is quite a trip out, it’s worth it to see the flowers in full bloom as they wilt only a few days after blooming.
