Cameron Highlands, Perak

Misty mountains, Tudor-themed architecture, 4WDs, scones, strawberries and tea plantations all converge in this distinctly un-Southeast Asian destination. Activities such as self-guided hiking, nature hikes and agricultural tourism make the Cameron Highlands one of Malaysia’s more worthwhile and approachable active destinations. The area also represents a clever escape within a vacation, as the weather in the Cameron Highlands tends to stay mercifully cool year-round.
