Cameron Highlands 2 nights
Day 1 KL or Penang/Cameron Highlands: Take a scenic journey to the Cameron Highlands, one of the wonders of Malaysia (approx 3 hours 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur or 4 hours from Penang). The route takes in views of the highlands, waterfalls, streams, giant tree-ferns as well as traditional Malay life. Arrive in the Cameron Highlands early afternoon and the remainder of the day is free to relax or, if time allows, take a stroll along one of the marked trails through nearby villages.
Day 2 Cameron Highlands: This morning, visit fruit and vegetable farms, a flower garden, Sam Poh Temple and a tea plantation, where you’ll learn about the tea making process. Be sure to try the Cameron Highlands tea - a cross between Earl Grey, Camomile and breakfast tea. The rest of the day is yours to explore. For a taste of home, why not indulge with afternoon tea on the terrace of The Lakehouse, perhaps enjoy a round of golf, visit one of the townships to browse the shops, or simply admire the surroundings and be rejuvenated by the fresh, cool air.
Day 3 Cameron Highlands/KL or Penang: All too soon it’s time to be bid farewell to this charming region, which really is reminiscent of an English village of old. Depart this morning for the return drive to KL or Penang.
Departures: This tour departs daily from Kuala Lumpur or Penang and operates for a minimum of two passengers.
Accommodation: In deluxe rooms at your choice of either The Lakehouse or Cameron Highlands Resort.
Tour price: The prices shown are based on the best value travel dates in low season and include transfers from KL or Penang, accommodation at your chosen hotel and sightseeing as outlined.
We recommend that you stay midweek and avoid public holidays for a more relaxing experience. Not recommended for the less mobile.
