Kea Farm is a mini Cameron Highlands, with the essence of Cameron Highlands all combined into one. Fruits, vegetables, tea, honey products, flowers, cactus, dried products and souvenirs. One of the best places for shopping. Continue reading
Tea plantations in Cameron Highlands are spectacular sights. We visited the Sungai Palas Boh Tea Plantation, which is not the easiest to get to as you have to drive through a narrow, meandering and bumpy lane. But it’s all well worth the bumps. Continue reading
