A view from the Boh Tea Plantation. They didn't have any Boh beer though. Too bad.

When you live in a place that’s 40-above every day, sometimes you need a break from the heat. Which is why we escaped to the Cameron Highlands a couple weeks back during the Malaysia Day long weekend.

Located 200 km (or a 4-hour drive) from KL, Cameron Highlands offers hiking, strawberries, butterflies, tea and local tourists – all in large volumes. We mostly went for the hiking (which was great), but also dove right into the rest. Sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist, especially when you can rent a hotel room for 30 bucks and eat for way, way less.

Two thumbs up for Cameron Highlands (minus the 6-hour drive back in the holiday traffic). Here are some pics…
