    Beautiful!

    Did you drive there? Heard that the road to Cameron Highlands is full of narrow bends and steep cliffs. I'd like to visit there some day.

    mudpool,
    I'm glad that the photo brings you fond memories

    how long to get from singapore -> cameron highlands, let's see,
    note the following are approx timings

    Singapore - > KL (stop at Yong Peng)
    10pm 2am

    KL ------------> Tapah (change to Van at KL)
    3am 5am

    This part, you have to endure nearly 2hrs of winding road
    The van will stop at a local tour agent @ brinchang to "pyscho" you to take the local tour package; its not a bad idea but we have other plans;
    Tapah --------> Cameron
    5:30am 7:30am

    so the entire trip should be around 9+hrs

    we stay at the equatorial hotel; looks pretty deserted but flowers are blooming everywhere; its really delightful to walk amongst them. most of the attraction are nearby (e.g rose centre, bee farm, butterfly farm, kea farms, cactus whole sale centre etc) but for tea estate, you really need to get a taxi;

    foodwise, you have very limited choice, you are stuck with hotel food are a cafe nearby which serves okay steamboat with unlimited serving of farm vegetables which is pretty delicous to me, not a bad idea to become "vegetarian" for a while

    my friend wasn't too keen on the idea of jungle trekking althougth I felt that its absolutely delightful to trek in cool jungle, oh well maybe next time got kakis with similiar minds

    I certainly will be visiting again but next year; hoping too catch a glimse of the biggest, badiest, most smelling flower in the world, Rafflesia flowers

    let me know if you folks got anymore questions about cameron highlands

    talking about blooming flowers, these yellow daisy are taken in the bee farm, aren't they lovely?

    Nice pictures, but I think the captioning severely marred it.

    I missed that place too! Was there a yr plus back, took the coach from SG around 9pm, stopped at some places and reach Cameron around 7am. Very very nice weather and scenery, air is really fresh too!

    hwah... equatorial hotel... if I'm not wrong, that's the highest place in Cameron, quite far from brinchang where my aunt stays, quite far from tanah rata oso right? I can't remember. The draft there is strong, and visibility is always limited.

    I haven't been to the bee farm before though. Didn't know they have it there.

    I like the quiet life there, simple and relaxing. Very homey feeling

    Not really the highest, the highest peak is Gunang *something* (forgot the name) at around 2000m; equatorial hotel is the highest point you can stay

    not really far from tanah rata; tanah rata is a small town; and it is full of backpackers & the food (more choice too) & accomodation there is slightly cheaper; I but still prefer to be away from those crowds

    of course alot of people wants a quiet & relaxing life; but you need to earn enuff $moolas$ to see you thru those years
