    Only thing I can think of is, if you are driving MPV and have kids, maybe take the other exit as the winding road, some people might get motion sickness .... or you let the kids sit in front.
    No MPV. No kids
    going up in a Cayman

    researching the route now.
    Lakehouse Hotel looks good. I remember that place.
    You must really like CH eh?
    Exploring! :)

    Any tips for the journey up, especially with regards to which road to take?

    My itinerary:
    Day 1: Sin - KL
    Day 2: KL - Cameron Highlands
    Day 3: Cameron Highlands
    Day 4: Cameron Highlands - Malacca
    Day 5: Malacca - Singapore

    I'm familiar with KL but not north of that.

    If you are 1st time driving up CH, better use the new Simpang pulai exit. Two exit after Tapah if not wrong, from south.

    It will just take another, maybe extra 1 hour. Easier. But be careful. As this road is wider, not winding and seems, remember, seems easier to drive, many tend to speed.

    On weekend in Brinchang town there is night market. Not very special, but just something to do at night.

    Yes. This traditional route actually quite interesting. For a good driver will be fine.

    I felt that this route can enjoy more 'CH' feel, as you slowly drive up, the weather starts change, and the view also change very very slowly. Enjoy the process.

    yeah was thinking of golfing, but will be too much stuff to carry since will be in KL as well on other days.
    Will leave the golf for a specific golfing trip
    This one is R&R and photography
    I remember the golf course at Tanah Rata. The Sultan of Kedah was playing there the last time I was there. Total blockade of the area...
    Exploring! :)

    Thanks for the tips. Yup I remember the old road was really winding, but since i wanna pass ringlet and tanah rata first, it doesn't make sense to go further north and come back south via brinchang.

    Got BMW advanced driver training cert, considered good driver?

    Haha, with that and your Cayman, you will reached Ringlet in half hour and Tanah rata in 35mins provided you dont stop at the waterfall to take pic
