After a six hour flight from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur, I met up with my new travel buddy, Ben, and a friend from Hong Kong, Kristine. Next morning we took a long and winding bus ride to the Cameron Highlands in central Malaysia. (approx 4.5 hours)

The air is much fresher up here and the temperature is cooler. Had I been more prepared, I might have bought another jumper! We did a good 'jungle trek' which was quite adventurous, having to scramble a bit and find our way on a not so marked out path!

We also took a trip to see a tea plantation and a tea factory which I enjoyed having never seen tea plants before. We also saw local honey farms, a rose garden, a strawberry farm and a butterfly/insect farm. It is a nice area, and the local people were very proud of their surroundings. We also had some fantastic Indian food whilst in the Cameron Highlands, and very cheap at that.

We stayed at the Fathers guesthouse which was perched on top of a hill, a short walk into town. It provided all the tours, and had good transport deals to Taman Negara and the Perhentian Islands, which is the next destination....
