The Cameron Highlands is famous for its flora and, as well as tea and strawberries, you will also find a huge number of species of roses here. If you like flowers then one of the best ways to see the roses is on a trip to Mrs. Robertson’s Rose Garden which is located on a scenic hillside and will give you pretty views over the valleys below. Some of the species that you can admire here include Pink Queen Victoria and Maid of Hearts and don’t be surprised by the large size of some of the flowers, as they thrive due to the higher elevation of the Cameron Highlands. As with many attractions here there is also a pretty little cafe and gift shop attached.

Raaju’s Hill Strawberry Farm is known for having some of the juiciest strawberries in the Cameron Highlands. One of the reasons for this is that the farm is strategically located in a misty valley, but whatever the reason, this is one of the best places to pick strawberries in town. This is a great activity, especially for anyone who is travelling with children and you can pick half a kilo of strawberries that you can then take home and savor. If you prefer to just admire the strawberry fields but still want to sample some of the delicious fruit, then you can visit the onsite cafe where you can enjoy a full English cream tea with strawberry jam as well as their signature strawberry juice.

One of my absolute favourite attractions in Cameron Highlands, the fantastic Time Tunnel is also sometimes referred to as The Local Museum. Much more than just a museum, though, Time Tunnel lets you experience life in times gone. Immerse yourself in different scenes and play with various props for fun and fabulous photographs. Sit down for a cup of tea, step into a hairdressing shop, climb behind a bar counter, pose with a drinks’ cart, play with vintage games, and more. The collection of memorabilia is impressive, and it’s a top place to learn more about local life following the Japanese occupation.

Located at the top of Gunung Brinchang, one of the area’s highest peaks, the Mossy Forest is a great place to experience the natural world.

There are sweeping views of the surroundings, and the dense foliage and tall trees provide plenty of shade. Fog sometimes hangs thickly in the air and the forest is home to a diverse array of flora and fauna.
