Don't Forget Your Sweater!!!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sweater & Comfortable Walking Shoes
Photo Equipment: Camera, Batteries And Films If you are not using digital. You can still buy it at some of the shop if you don't mind the price!
Miscellaneous: As I've found out that the weather in Cameron Highlands never range more than 21ْC so other than your toiletries and medical supplies do not forget to bring your sweater too, as the weather will be much colder during night time. If you forget to bring your sweater, you can also buy it at Brincang night market on Saturday night. You will be doing a lot of walking in Cameron Highlands so bring along a comfortable walking shoes, water bottles, small torch light etc.…And don't forget your camera!

It can get a bit parky!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It gets cold in the Highlands. We really messed up on the packing and didnt' take enough warm clothes and had to buy a couple of things. Make sure you take at least one jumper and one pair of long trousers, and maybe even a raincoat (especially if you're going walking).
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A long sleeve jersey would be more comfy if you are not used to strolling about in 16 degrees centigrade.
Miscellaneous: Maybe an umbrella or raincoat - just in case
