How To Travel at Cameron Highland Without Having a Car

I realize that not many information I can get about these when I was searching in the internet. Most of the people said that it's best to travel to Cameron with cars. But I think that it's not necessary. It's depends on how much you know about that place. Well, I made some mistake in this trip but it makes me learn on how to travel at different places. So in this blog post, I'll try my best on explaining on how to travel at Cameron Highland without the need to having a car.

Day 1
Well, Sheue Shin and I depart from Pudu, KL. There are a few hours of bus that are available to travel to Cameron.  Then we'll reach Tanah Rata, Cameron. For those who always get road sicks, please prepare medicine or some sour snacks. The journey from KL to Cameron takes around 4.5 hours. they will stop by at Slim River for 45 minutes. But the journey to Cameron from Tapah is really narrow. Please prepare for some dizzy ride.

We've book that motel beforehand so we took a taxi from Tanah Rata to Brinchang (RM8 per ride. Cameron is a tourist places so most of the taxi fares is standard) This is where we make the 1st mistake. We should have take a good look around Tanah Rata before that. For those who is planning to travel without car, this is where you should take note. THERE ARE MANY TOURIST AGENCY TO CHOOSE AT TANAH RATA. The price range can goes from RM25 to RM100. Depends on what sort of package that you all want. And also depends on how many days you all plan to stay at Cameron Highland. This will actually makes your life much easier. Other than that, it can makes your cost much cheaper and you can travel to more places. Besides that, if you're planning to travel in group, there are Van to be rent as well. Then you can share the price among your friends. For your information, you cannot find these tourist stuff at Brinchang. So you'll have to do it at Tanah Rata.

Anyhow, both of us check in and manage to get a good rest and we went to hunt for a Strawberry Moment.

It was introduce by my friend. It's reachable by walking at Brinchang. Look for people around and ask for the direction. Most of the people there know about this restaurant.

It's the best among all the dishes. It's one of the best dessert seller at Strawberry Moment. This it's a must try if you're at this restaurant. 

Later on, we went to strawberry hunting. Yup, strawberry again. I don't know why but it seems like Cameron Highlands has been commercialize with Strawberry. You can look for all strawberry merchandise when you reach Cameron. You don't have to worry that you can't see strawberry at all at Cameron ><

The Mines Heritage

Ok. I'm going to stop posting Singapore trip for a while now. I want to update something new that is happening in my life recently. I've been so busy in this short sem that I did not realize that it's going to be May soon. I''ve got to come back to reality soon. I have a feel that I'm living in a fairytale so far. Guess I've been having too much fun. Back to today topic, I had  a short trip with my college friends to go to The Mines Heritage. Basically we're booking a room and BBQ food is provided and we'll be able to play all the sport activities that are there.

All getting ready

Birthday cake is provided by the host as well. And surprisingly, it's very tasty and pretty too ^^

There is a place for us to BBQ at the night time. Food is provided by the host as well. But we prepared extra food because we thought that the food provided will not be enough for us. Everything is provided as well. Including charcoal. 

And we prepared Otak-Otak as well

My look for the day 

With Dawn ^^ 

This is something interesting. I ask my friend at first whether do they want to have some drinks while we're there. All of them admit that they can't drink and decide to let this idea goes off. Ended up in the middle of the night, they're telling me that they want to have some drink. And this is the end of the pic. 

Some glimpse of the room 

Mahjong and Wii is provided as well. We're so happy about this especially the mahjong ^^
