Confused about Cameron Highlands?

Speak to a Malaysia expert

Peninsula Malaysia

 

A colonial feel pervades the Cameron Highlands, with timbered buildings more reminiscent of the Cotswolds than Malaysia.

Visitors to the Cameron Highlands today come for the lush landscapes, forest walks, colonial ambience, or to visit the villages of the indiginous Orang Asli.

With a strong British, Dutch and Portuguese influence, a heady air of faded colonial grandeur hangs over this strategic town on the Strait of Malacca.

The unique Peranakan culture is very prevalent here, a mix of Chinese and local Malay, most readily experienced through the excellent local cuisine.

A mossy forest occurs only at the highest elevations where low-level clouds cover the forests with mist and moisture, allowing moss, ferns and orchids to thrive. Animals such as frogs, birds, snakes, insects and certain mammals thrive.

This short nocturnal walk offers a great experience of the forest at night, when it becomes alive with sound. Nights can get cool (around 15 degrees), so bring along a jacket. A nice warm tea or coffee is included.

Cameron Highlands

A colonial feel pervades the Cameron Highlands, with timbered buildings more reminiscent of the Cotswolds than Malaysia.

Visitors to the Cameron Highlands today come for the lush landscapes, forest walks, colonial ambience, or to visit the villages of the indiginous Orang Asli.

The Cameron Highlands are easily reached by road from Kuala Lumpur and make an interesting midway point for those heading north to Penang.

A stay at the Cameron Highlands Resort is highly recommended.

Cameron Highlands Resort

Set amidst tea plantations and rolling hills, the Cameron Highland’s Resort is a tranquil boutique hideaway with all the splendour, romance and nostalgia of the Cameron Highlands’ grand colonial heritage.

This luxury boutique resort features 56 beautifully appointed rooms and suites, and offers an award winning spa and 18-hole golf course.

The colonial style rooms and suites at the Cameron Highlands Resort capture the nostalgic elegance of an age where quality and care were a way of life.

Period furniture, Jim Thompson’s finest quality fabrics, teak and silk combine to create an environment that is both beautiful and comfortable.

The Cameron Highlands is about two hours drive from Kuala Lumpur and the resort has private limo transfers.

Malacca

With a strong British, Dutch and Portuguese influence, a heady air of faded colonial grandeur hangs over this strategic town on the Strait of Malacca.

The unique Peranakan culture is very prevalent here, a mix of Chinese and local Malay, most readily experienced through the excellent local cuisine.

The Majestic Malacca is a wonderful excuse to add Malacca to any Malaysian holiday.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport is only 45 minutes away, making Malacca just as easy to get to as Kuala Lumpur itself.

Majestic Malacca

At last Malacca has a stylish and luxurious hotel in keeping with the historic atmosphere of the town.

The Majestic also features the latest award winning Spa Village, honouring the healing traditions of the local region and Baba-Nyonya culture.

Getting to Malacca takes about 2 hours by road from Kuala Lumpur, meaning the Majestic can easily be combined with a stay in Kuala Lumpur or as a stop en route to the Pangkor Laut Resort, the Majestic’s sister hotel.

Taman Negara

A virgin jungle expanse covering 4,343 square kilometres, Taman Negara was established in 1939 and is the largest park in peninsular Malaysia.

Within easy reach from Kuala Lumpur, a 2 or 3 night trip to Taman Negara is a great way to experience the million year old Malaysian rainforest.

Taman Negara’s ecosystem includes an estimated 10,000 plant species, 150,000 insects, 25,000 invertebrates, 675 birds, 270 reptiles, 250 freshwater fish and 200 mammals.

Some of the flora and fauna found in Taman Negara are rare or indigenous to Malaysia.

Things to do at Mutiara Taman Negara include river cruises, guided walks, bird watching, fishing, swimming by waterfalls and night safaris.

The world’s longest suspended canopy walk is the most popular activity in Taman Negara (you might need to queue for a while at busier times).

Suspended 40 metres above the forest floor, the canopy walkway is a great way to experience the rainforest from a bird’s eye view.

The original inhabitants of Taman Negara, the Orang Asli people, still live a nomadic lifestyle within the park, still hunting in their traditional way.

Ipoh

Ipoh is a coastal Malaysian city midway between Kuala Lumpur (2 hours) and Penang (90 minutes).

Ipoh marks the point where the road from the Cameron Highlands meets the coast, meaning that most visitors touring the west coast of Malaysia pass through Ipoh.

Ipoh is rapidly emerging as a tourism destination in Malaysia due to it's heritage buildings, rich culinary scene and surrounding natural attractions. The location midway between KL and Penang also makes it a great option for a stopover.

There are a few attractions in this scenic area of limestone hills, but The Benjaran Hotsprings Retreat has given good reason for considering a stopover.

This luxury wellness retreat offers the chance to break up the overland journey through Malaysia and enjoy a couple of nights or longer in one of the very few health and wellness retreats in Malaysia.

 

Banjaran Hotsprings

Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is a luxury boutique spa & wellness retreat in Ipoh, midway between Kuala Lumpur (2 hours) and Penang (1.5 hours) on Malaysia’s west coast.

Nestled amid lush tropical jungle, and embraced by magnificent cliffs on every side, Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat offers 25 luxury villas, each with its own private plunge pool and geo-thermal Jacuzzi.

A stay at Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat makes a perfect midway point for those travelling up Malaysia’s west coast or for those looking for a luxury spa resort in Malaysia within easy reach of Kuala Lumpur.

Designed for short-term stays with the primary focus on health enhancement and balance, the environment at Banjaran is geared towards fitness, healthy eating, relaxation and renewal. It immerses you in healthy living.

All-inclusive rates include villas, spa cuisine, fitness classes, wellness consultation and selective treatments with a minimum stay of two nights.
