    Telephone booth

    Favorite thing: This red telephone booth is standing strong & decorating the street beautifully in front of Ye Old Smoke House, Cameron Highlands.

    Btw, the bike is not a decoration. Just happen that I parked it there.


    I did few bike tours and sometime Mark will ask me to ride along just to while away the weekend. If I happen to have my dad’s cruiser with me, I will surely pack my day change and off we go.

    Just for fun

    Favorite thing: They are not plantation workers, but having great fun playing with the basket & trimmer.

    The trimmer/cutter is actually a modified version of gardening cutter with extended plastic catchments on top. The plastic extension is actually recycled from pesticide containers.

    Wild Daffodils

    The Prince of Daffodils

    Favorite thing: Daffodils in Cameron Highland.
    Few drives from Brinchang town, more farms can be found along the road. Plenty of stalls selling strawberries (but sour one).
    Then we passed one of the hills which contained wild daffodils, im so excited and straight away jump in to the wild bush with the feeling like the children of the Sound of Music.

    Pansy in Cameron Highlands

    by daryll Written Jul 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pansy at my back

    Favorite thing: Not the hotel. But Pansy which normally grows in Europe, somehow the climate in Cameron Highlands allows the pansy to survive maybe not for long especially hot dry weather.

    Merlin Inn, building at the background, i've been there inside but it look dirty and not attractive at all to stay. Front yard of the hotel is the hotels golf course facilities.

    White Chilli Plants

    by Wild_Orchid Written May 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ornamental chilli

    Favorite thing: Would you believe that this was another type of ornamental chilli growing at the bungalow where I was renting while at Cameron Highlands? It's white and round, rather like tiny white rose buds. Imagine if you plucked them and served them to friends on a bowl of ice-cream...naughty, naughty!

    However, if you want to know how they taste, don't ask me, because I didn't try them. : D

    unique chilli

    Favorite thing: Take a look at this plant. It was growing at the garden of the bungalow where I was staying. It looks like a red flower, but is actually a unique shaped chilli! Isn't it great?
    I have never seen a similar chilli plant outside of Camerons.

    Towns of Cameron

    by kielorla Written May 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In Cameron, there are 3 towns, Ringlet ( the lowest point of cameron), Tanah Rata ( the middle point of cameron and also the main town) and lastly Brinchang ( the highest point of cameron).

    Most of the attractions are located in Tanah Rata and Brinchang, therefore if you want to find a accommadation, these 2 towns are the better choices.

    Fondest memory: Try the mountain trekking is you have the time, it is very wonderful and also you can trekked up to the highest point and have a bird eye view of cameron. Also the waterfall, i missed the falls, the water is so cooling and clear.

    Flowers & Vegetables

    by muddybok Written May 13, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Flowers

    Favorite thing: Cameron Highlands is slightly colder than average Malaysian climate, due to its height & mountainous surrounding. Vegetables, fruits & flowers can be easy grown up there, because of thick fogs were covering the hills & make it a natural sprinkle system. These environment factors have somehow making agriculture as the main activity at Cameron Highlands.

    Better than Kuala Lumpar... Cameron Highlands

    by tomruth78 Updated Mar 30, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I visited the Cameron Highlands because I saw a friends photographs, which were amazing, so we made sure whilst travelling through Malaysia we passed this way. And believe me it is a place worth visiting. It was amazing, the fresh green colours, the smell of tea in the air. Not many people visit the Cameron Highlands, I think it is one of those places that not too many people think about.

    Roses (Cameron Highlands)

    by muddybok Written Feb 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Roses

    Favorite thing: You can get 2 dozens (or more) of roses for the price of RM10 (USD 2.50). Sometime the seller will include a bunch of forget-me-not or other tiny flowers free with your purchase.

    You can negotiate prices will those aunts who are very kind with young guys like me. I didn't mean to take advantage, it's the offer & acceptance to seal the contract of selling.

    Expr#626 & Cousin

    Favorite thing: Cactus Valley by far the largest cactus garden which exhibit & sell various cactus species. The size of these cactuses varies from the size of lemon (inclusive of pot) till the size of what-ever the mature cactus size should be.

    We are making fun of this friend who is happened to gel his hair like cactus.
