Cameron Highlands Holidays

Cameron Highlands holidays allow you to immerse yourself in Malaysia’s stunning nature. Explore rolling green fields of tea plantations that stretch far and wide, and the cooler climate is the ideal temperature for trekking.

Start your Cameron Highlands holiday with an invigorating hike through the Mossy Forest - an area of woodland that offers views lifted straight from a fairytale. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the local culture with a trip to an indigenous village. Once the temperature begins to drop, finish your day with a steaming-hot steamboat dinner and take in the beautiful river views.

The Cameron Highlands is world-renowned for its tea estates and fruit and vegetable farms. We highly recommend you visit Boh Tea Plantation, which is located 5,000 feet above sea level and offers incomparable views. Learn about the tea production process and enjoy a cup of fresh Malaysian tea on the open balcony. You can also take a fun family trip to Lata Berkoh Waterfalls. Hop on a boat that takes you deep into the jungle and marvel at the water cascading into the pools below. Dip your feet in the cool water and relax with a picnic as the kids explore.

Embrace the tranquillity of the natural surroundings on your Cameron Highlands holiday

The Cameron Highlands’ high altitude and cool environment allows sweet fruit such as strawberries to thrive. Visit Raju’s Hill Strawberry Farm for an afternoon of strawberry picking before sitting down in the café with a milkshake, ice cream or waffle – all of which are strawberry-themed (naturally).

To see some of Cameron Highlands’ local species, enjoy a morning spent at Kea Butterfly Garden. Roam through the enclosure and get close to the wonderful butterflies and other insect species. Both captivating and educational, this is the perfect place if you are travelling with your family. Be sure to visit the small petting zoo too. If you like history then we recommend you join us on a journey back in time with a trip to the Time Tunnel Museum. Filled with memorabilia and artefacts, the museum offers a fascinating look at the cultural heritage of Malaysia, during and after the time of the Japanese occupation. Highlights include Jim Thompson Corner and Old Kopitiam.

Enjoy a multicentre Cameron Highlands holiday - carry on your adventure from a Cameron Highlands resort to a Ubud retreat in Bali. Alternatively, sample Sri Lankan tea in Kandy or relax in Vietnam’s tranquil Sapa.

Local cuisine

Get a flavour of the local culture through your palate during your Cameron Highlands holiday. Here are a few of our favourite dishes.

  • Steamboat

    Originating from China, a steamboat dinner includes a big pot of hot broth soup and pieces of meat, fish and vegetables. The accoutrements are cooked in the broth and then dished out into bowls. This is a fun and interactive dining experience. 

  • Strawberry desserts

    As strawberries are grown in abundance, they make up the base of many sweet treats in the Cameron Highlands. Indulge in homemade ice cream, waffles and even strawberry flavoured hot chocolate.

  • Traditional cream tea

    Enjoy a luxurious and quintessentially British afternoon tea. Tuck into traditional English sandwiches, cakes and scones – all washed down with a pot of locally sourced Malayasian tea.
