Taking a Short Break

Thursday, May 31, 2007

Since it is school holidays, I will be heading up to a mountain resort to rest and relax with my family and s-i-l's family.

There are many mountain resorts in Malaysia such a Genting Highlands, Berjaya Hills, Fraser Hills and Cameron Highlands. The one that most will go, I guess would be Genting Highlands with the casino and lots of entertainments. But Genting is not our choice.

Our choice is Cameron Highlands, we are going for nature and scout for some foods along the way at Kampar, Bidor etc. The last time we were there was few years back and they may be some new developments.

Now that the new road from Simpang Pulai is open, we plan to travel to the highlands via this route. The road condition is much better here than the Tapah route and it only takes about 45 minutes to get to Kampung Raja from Simpang Pulai.

As per www.cameronhighlands.com, Take Exit 137 (Simpang Pulai) and turn right at the traffic light right after the toll booth. Turn right again at the next traffic light about 200 metres away. You are now on the way to Cameron Highlands. Eventually you will see signs to Kampung Raja or Cameron Highlands along the way. After about 1 hour, you will reach the Kampung Raja junction where you will have to turn right from the new road into Kampung Raja town. You're now in Cameron Highlands and you can just
follow the main road to your destination. Brinchang & Tanah Rata is about 25-30kms from here
We will be back on Saturday with some update and blogs about our trip.
