We started our CH adventure on the 2nd day. The weather was gloomy and heavy downpour in the afternoon. However the morning started warm and after our breakfast in the hotel we walked to the taxi station which was just few minutes walk.
We hired a taxi driver to bring us sight-seeing. Standard rate at RM15 per hour. We spent 4 hours for our sight-seeing, which I think was good enough for the kids. Except the honey bee farm, we have ventured into all the famous of the highlands.
First stop was the tea farm. We visited the BOH factory and tea shop. And we get to walk down and have a close look at the tea trees.

Ummph! - the famous tagline
Next was the Lavender Garden. The beautiful bed of colourful flowers really mesmerizing. We did not managed to pick any strawberries as it was closed that day, but we did bought a pack to taste for RM10.

Then, we went to Rose Valley. It rained by then but luckily the huge garden was covered so it did not stopped us and other visitors from walking and admiring the roses and other flowers.
Rose - my favourite
One of the many rose species
Tree snakes are eeeewww!
Lucky to see this peacock parading its lovely tail
Last stop was the butterfly farm. Unfortunately we did not get to see many butterflies flying around as the weather was chilling. Most just hang high in the greenhouse. However some were seen hanging on flowers so not a total disappointment for my kids.

Cactuses are even not an eye sore here!
