Up the highland

The 2nd part of our holiday was to go to Cameron Highland. After all the funs in KL, now it was time for some relaxation and learning. 

This was my first visit to Cameron Highland. We took taxi from our hotel to CH at 10am at fee of RM350.00. Thankfully it was not that jam along the way but both kids had a car sick moment and we had to stop for a short while for some fresh air before we proceed with our journey. Maybe they ate too much at the rest stop before we went up to the highland.

The clock and temperature tower in the park that is just opposite the hotel

The Century Pines Resort


It rained when we reached our hotel, Century Pines Resort just after 2pm. A very nice resort and it is at a very strategic location as near to the taxi centre in Tanah Rata. And just walking distance to town and few food outlets and hawkers stalls.

A peek at our hotel room and view from the hotel balcony. No air-con in the room as we used the highlands' fresh cool air from outside. We slept with the balcony door opened. It was pretty cooling at night and plus with rain during the 2 afternoons while we were there, so the temperature was low.

A coach right next to the balcony

Beautiful view while sun was setting

Love the bathroom because of the layout. They seperate it into 3 sections; ie long bath tub, shower room and toilet

A classic-looking basin with seperate hot and cold water faucets

And what I like the most? They have hair dryer with blowing head for curls. Yes!


I missed the cooling temperature of CH! Once back to Sibu, how I wish it was as cooling as in CH! Lol!

Ooooo...I love Cameron! A friend took me there on a one day trip. Must go again. So a taxi is only RM350, eh? Good good... Thanks for the info. Must go there one of these days.

Let me know when you're going again. My family & I will tag along. More fun if going in a big group, I'm sure.

The taxi price is very reasonable. I thought it would be more expensive. The weather is so hot here so it is a good idea to go to CH for the cool air. Did you visit the rose garden, cactus farm, pick strawberry and vegetables?

I too get car sick when I travel up CH in a coach...and I vomit... so next time I am smarter, I take medicine for giddiness and car sickness before I travel

Wah you are very efficient and hardworking in blogging your holiday trip!

So you love CH ya? Hehe, me too! Actually nowadays CH is not as cooling as last time already, consider hot already.. I think it's due to global warming!

I haven't been there for ages; hope to revisit someday. Wow, I'm in love with the hair dryer too! Hahaha!

I was there more than 10 years ago, love the place but not sure if I want to go again or not, cannot tahan mabuk jalan :(

Merryn said...

It's still cooling up there? I heard from many friends that it is no longer cold. But then again I havent been there myself for quite some time so I should believe you :)

I wouldn't mind retiring in CH. It's cool and peaceful. Nice post on the hotel, Rose and great to hear you had a good holiday ;)
