My journey to Cameron Highlands started at 10.30pm this evening when I boarded a comfortable Konsortium Bus from Golden Mile Tower.
This was probably the longest coach journey ever undertaken up to this point of my life, a journey lasting 8.5 hours. Since I was never a coach person, I was certainly apprehensive about the whole experience. However, taking a direct coach from Singapore beats all other modes of transportation options available, avoiding the hassle of flying into Ipoh and figuring out how to make my way up the mountains from there.
Cameron Highlands had been on my cards for a very long time. Lured by the prospects of cooler climate surrounded by tea and strawberry plantations, I was looking forward to uncover this piece of paradise closed to home.
I was happy to sacrifice 2 precious days of my annual leave entitlement for this trip. And the pleasant memories that lived on over the next couple of days certainly made this journey worth every bit!
Growing up listening to the music of The Carpenters, he decided to name this blog Budokan in remembrance of their Live at Budokan Tour in Tokyo in May 1974. He finally made a trip to the Nippon Budokan in September 2017, 43 years after the Carpenters held their 18 sold-out concerts in Japan!
Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
