Located northeast of Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands is the highest point in Malaysia that is accessible by road. Its average yearly temperature of 18°C makes it a pleasing getaway not only for Malaysians, but as well for Singaporeans.
There are two ways of looking at Cameron Highlands. One is being in absolute awe of its mountainous views, tea plantations, strawberry fields, and cloud-touching peaks that surround you from all angles. Another is if you see it as a damp and out of season ski resort that has been taken for granted. I normally travel to explore and go on adventures, but this trip was more about taking a breather from the daily grind in Singapore. So although the place left more of the latter impression on me personally, I’d still say Cameron wasn’t a let down and I got what I had set out there for.
