Cameron Highlands was wet during the last few days of 2010. We went to the usual places like the pasar malam Brinchang (nothing much to shout about for locals), Sg Palas Boh Tea Center, Kea Farm, Raju Hill Strawberry Farm, Tanah Rata’s row of food shops, and Big Red Strawberry Farm. Didn’t cover the jungle trails nor the rose/cactus/butterfly/insect farms.

This time around, we also  managed to visit MARDI’s Agritech Park in Tanah Rata. Entrance fee is RM3 per person. The strawberries and plants sold here are cheaper than those sold in the shops, but you have to be early (before noon if possible to get them).

The place is in Tanah Rata, you can find signages aplenty.

The flower varieties were quite good. They have about 20 over Rose varieties.

Some of the photos we took:

Even though it was off-season, strawberry plucking was one of the activities available at Big Red Strawberry Farm at Brinchang. Then had a gala time being a strawberry picker 🙂

We also went to another favorite spot – Sg Palas Boh Tea Center. We arrived at around 9am and the weather was cold with slight drizzle. The crowd started to come in by 10.3oam. Nice place to enjoy your morning cuppa.

On the way back, our usual pit stop at Cameron Bharat Cafe which serves brownie with ice-cream. But the masala tea was a bit light.
