Cameron Highlands, Cameron Highlands
Concierge.com's insider take:
The cool climate of the Cameron Highlands makes them popular for weekend getaways. It was a favorite retreat of colonial Brits, hence the Tudor country homes, rose gardens, and tea plantations. The fertile hills also nurture commercial nurseries and strawberry farms. Of the various hill stations, Tanah Rata is the major tourist center, with cottages for vacationers. Higher up, pretty Brinchang has rose gardens and a Buddhist temple. The hills have great hikes: Walk to Robinson or Parit Falls, where you can swim in the pools below.
