CAMERON HIGHLANDS PART 1: Tea & Lavender Farm Tour

23 April 2018 | Malaysia

The cafetaria in Boh Tea Factory

Green, chill, and calm. Those were the vibes I got when visiting Cameron Highlands. A great place to disconnect from the heat and the noise of city life.  At glance, it reminded me of Puncak and Lembang in Indonesia. We took a bus ride for about 4 hours from Southern Intergrated Terminal in Kuala Lumpur. The ride was nice with a comfortable seat and wide leg space. 

AFFORDABLE HOTELS

We got off at Tanah Rata and walked to the Heritage Hotel. The view from the balcony was beautiful. We enjoyed breakfast with a relaxing morning view. A nice place for staycation. My brother booked a spacious room for family of four with a reasonable price. You can find any other accomodations with lower price too.

BHARAT TEA PLANTATION

We took a taxi to Bharat Tea Plantation to enjoy the afternoon tea. The cafe was quite big with stunning tea plantation view. I couldn’t resist to see it closer. I went down the wooden stairs that led me to the plantation. The afternoon sun light enhanced the beautiful curves of hill. There were some buildings seen from a far. I walked among the the tea plants, breathing in the fresh smell of the leaves and the ground. The tea was served and I didn’t want to miss the great taste of warm tea.

BOH TEA FACTORY

The next day we rent a taxi for a tour around the highland. There were some travel agents nearby but we wanted to take our own time. The price was counted per hour and we could negotiate.

The friendly Indian driver took us to Boh Tea Factory, the largest one in Malaysia. We saw the equipments and the process of making tea. There was a gallery with historical pictures of the factory, and of course, the store. We bought some tea products and stopped by to enjoy a cup of tea. The cafe was full of visitors. The view was great too.

CAMERON LAVENDER FARM

After lunch, we moved to Cameron Lavender Farm. The smell of the lavenders welcomed us. There were a lot of flowers planted alongside the lavenders. The line of colors were very eye pleasing. We roamed around the farm to find beautiful spots to take pictures at. There were cute decorations, such as house miniatures, plants in the boots, and lovelocks.
