Cameron Highlands Travel Guide

A hilltop retreat that comprises a series of towns and villages set at altitudes of 1500m to 1800m ASL, the Cameron Highlands are located in the centre of peninsular Malaysia in the state of Pahang. Pahang is in itself one of Malaysia’s most charming destinations with a landscape that metamorphoses from a sun drenched coastline edged by the South China Sea to lofty mountain peaks, gentle rolling hills to dense stands of rainforests.

The Cameron Highlands have become the centre of Malaysia's tea industry and every one’s favourite getaway to escape the heat of the plains. Its attractions now number such myriad delights as jungle walks, waterfalls, 18 hole golf course, tours of tea plantations, rose and cactus gardens, strawberry and vegetable farms, bee and butterfly farms and the villages of the indigenous Orang Asli tribe.

The Camerons are perfect for those who have had it up to there with the sun, sea and sand - it is the ideal place for a dose of colonial retrospection, a game of golf or tennis or just to walk away those city blues in the midst of a tranquil environment that soothes the senses and rejuvenates the body and soul. The idyllic setting and cool climate entices visitor to sit at a table in a pretty garden, sip the Highland’s fine tea and savour fresh strawberries with sweet scented honey. The Camerons are indeed consummate perfection - a Garden of Eden on a tropical stage.

Did you know that Jim Thompson the father of Thailand's thriving silk industry disappeared mysteriously one morning in 1967 in the Camerons? His body was never found, and it is suspected that he was accidentally murdered but to-date the mystery of his disappearance has never been solved.
