Boh Sungei Palas Tea Estate
Boh Sungei Palas Tea Estate information
Up in the hills north of Brinchang, off the road to Gunung Brinchang. The approach road leads past worker housing and a Hindu temple (tea pickers are predominantly Indian) to the modern visitor centre, where you can watch a video on the history of the estate. There’s also a gift shop selling every version of Boh tea you can imagine and a pleasant cafe where you can sip tea while looking out over the lush plantations below. Free 15-minute tours showing the tea-making process are conducted during opening hours. Wait for a staff member to collect you from the visitor centre.
Public buses running between Tanah Rata and Kampung Raja pass the turn-off to Gunung Brinchang. From there it’s 4km along the winding road past Robertson Rose Garden (worth a detour for its hilltop views) to the plantation entrance, after which it’s another 15 minutes’ walk downhill to the visitors centre.
