Cameron Highlands is a velvety emerald expanse of undulating hill country that exudes fresh air and charm by the gallons! Home to the country’s fragrant tea plantations and strawberry farms sprinkled with tall eucalyptus trees, this Malaysian highland region needs to be seen to be believed. The region is christened after Sir William Cameron, the English explorer. Malaysia’s British colonizers built the region along the lines of their English homeland back in the 19th century. Victorian gardens, sprawling colonial bungalows, long walks and golfing greens defined these estates around the turn of the last century. Fill your lungs with the fresh highland air, enjoy the mild and breezy climate, and immerse yourself into its genteel ambiance. You can trek down the area’s many wooded trails, or visit some of the temples dotting its hills. Enjoy a panoramic hilltop view, as you settle down to a formal high tea spread out for your pleasure!
