There are only two main objectives for our trip to Cameron Highlands. One is the weather and amazing landscape that we have seen on the internet and I want to capture my very own photograph of the areas and places. Second is to pluck our very-own strawberries at one of those Strawberry farms. Our first day was primarily to explore the areas and get used to the weather and the local conditions. On the second day, we set off the day by taking the same public bus that brought us to our hotel, to the BOH tea plantation.

We aligned at the foot of the BOH tea plantation and according to the map, the BOH tea plantation is way UP there and we saw a few tourists walking up that dangerous long winding road. Little girl and I began to ask around for shuttle bus that can bring us up to the BOH tea plantation but failed to find any.

Then, we decided to “just do it” and try to hitch a ride up the winding road. We got in a pickup truck and the rest was fun and adventurous!

Then, I decided to take my drone up to take a few shots.

Moving along the streams, I decided to capture a few landscape photographs that rarely captured and found online.

Boh Tea Plantation

Fortunately, we chose to hitch a ride up to Boh Tea Plantation entrance and hiked in to uncover this spectacular view. The weather gets cooler as you climb up further so remember to bring a jacket.

The cafe at BOH tea plantation was very crowded. Later, we bought a few pack of BOH teas home to share with our friends and families.

We decided to tour the BOH tea plantation and found the visiting center which does not have a lot of tourists.

We headed back down to where we were using the SAME tactic and sure enough, another pickup truck came and brought us down to the main road.

Strawberry Farm

In Cameron Highlands, you will need to wait for the same public bus to bring you around and there is no other. Uber and Grab are not visible anywhere here as Cameron Highlands is still very deserted. Nonetheless, we headed to our next stop – Strawberry Farm.

We bought a basket to collect as many strawberries as we want from the counter and began walking up to the enclosed farms.

There are a lot of strawberry farms and I can’t tell which one is the best. Since you are at Cameron Highlands, you should definitely pluck your own strawberries at one of these farms – highly recommended!

Brinchang

The day is coming to an end but we still want to explore one more town – Brinchang. We quickly packed our strawberries and headed back on the road.

As sun is setting, we were losing light very fast. I quickly took my Phantom 4 out to take a quick look at Brinchang.

Brinchang is a small town in Cameron Highlands and it is rather touristy. It is good to explore but it is not to our likings.

Dinner time at Cameron Highlands

Before we go for our dinner, Little girl and I decided to head back to our hotel and put our strawberries safely in the fridge first. Dinner was simple but definitely filling and luxurious. And dinner costs us RM26 per person.

End of the trip, Cameron Highlands

We did not have a lot of remaining time left on day three as we have to catch our bus back to Singapore in the early morning. With our travel experience, the public bus transportation is slow and to be honest, it is just one bus that is doing all the work. We just have to get used to planning ahead of time to the timing when the bus will arrive at our destinations. Overall experience was great and we definitely enjoy ourselves here in Cameron Highlands, except for missing our bus at day one.
