Cooling-Up in Camerons

We were in Cameron Highlands from 2-4 October 2006. We stayed at Equatorial Hotel.

On our first day, we went to The T Cafe in Tanah Rata for tea. The cafe is located above a fastfood outlet and its entrance resembles a fire escape. It has a quiet, romantic atmosphere. Good place to relax.

The second day saw us on a half-day guided tour to the peak of Gunung Brinchang, the mossy forest, a strawberry farm and the Sungai Palas Boh Tea estate. The main purpose of going on this tour was to see the mossy forest. It is quite interesting with almost every tree branch being covered with moss due to the damp environment... looks like fairy-land :o).

We were pleased that it was quite cold in Camerons during this visit. However, we missed the Camerons night market this time as we went up during the weekday.
