This is the 2nd time I went to Cameron Highland this month. One of my favorite place to spend my free time. It's takes around 4 hours from my hometown in Penang.
Here is some of the info about Cameron Highland, which i took from the web:
Cameron Highlands is the smallest district in the state of Pahang which is located in the north-western corner of the state. One of the wonders of Malaysia, it is the largest and most famous hill resort in the country. This highland paradise still retains much of the charm of an English village.
Being a primarily agricultural domain, you will find an abundance of vegetables and fruits farms here. Cameron Highlands is also the leading producer of flowers and tea in Malaysia. Be prepared for a lovely sight of extraordinary flowers you won’t see flourishing elsewhere in Malaysia! Located on the Titiwangsa Range at about 1500 metres above sea-level, the temperature here can drop to 16 ˚C or lower at certain times.
The favorite part of my visit is visiting the orchid garden and for sure will buy some orchid as 'souvenir' ;) FYI, this orchid garden only can visit by invitation only, because the owner is orchid collector and not open to public. Now is the orchid flowering season there, especially for Paphiopedilum, Masdevallia and many more. Paphiopedilum is one of my favorite species, but only a few I can plant in my garden. Here is some pictures of this species and hybrid, that I took for you to enjoy the beauties.
