Spending the weekend over at Cameron Highlands...tak tahulah but Cameron seems to be one of my favourite places to relax and doing nothing. Maybe its because of the laid back atmosphere over there, plus the cool and clean air. Really good to unwind after going through the pressure of a city life.

When you talk about Cameron, one thing that you cannot escape from is the fresh fruits and vegetables. The greens are simply magnificent. Bak kata orang, saujana mata memandang menghijau sahaja. Baru betul turning green in envy.

But then, everything about Cameron memang seems wonderful...the people, the surroundings, the cool weather. In short, a perfect place for holiday. Although I think I can do without the traffic congestion.

Cameron - Home Of Flowers

Ah Cameron...the home of various species of flowers. No matter where you look, you are bound to find numerous species of flowers growing in abundance, thus giving the place the beautiful aura. For flower lovers, this is definitely heaven. But to those not really into flowers, this can be quite the opposite.

No matter how you look at it, there is no denying that Cameron has made a name for itself as home of flowers. Not surprising that most of the flowers grown here are destined for the overseas' market. Just check out the flower market in Tanah Rata or Ringlet and you will get the idea what I am trying to say.
Me...? Well, I am not really a fan of flowers. I can't even tell the differences between A dan B. But with a camera in my hand, flower becomes a great friend...a great subject that it.

Cameron Highlands - Holiday

Cameron Highlands...home of the tea plantation and fun. Fun...? That depends on how you define fun. If you love a cool atmosphere minus the 'kelam kabut' of a big city, than this is definitely the place for you. Even then you have to overcome the massive traffic as this place is well known to be quite chaotic on holidays.
But somehow, it is worthwhile...provided you have a good sense of patience.

Of couse the kids were more excited seeing the live strawberries for the first time. The closest they came to strawberry before this is just the strawberry ice cream. Wonder if I will ever find apples growing here...!

Lata Iskandar, Perak

Lata Iskandar is a magnificent waterfall located on the mid-way point from Tapah to Cameron Highlands. Travelling along the winding road to Cameron Highlands, you will not miss the magnificent sight of this waterfall. The sheer height of the waterfall is enough to persuade you to stop and have a closer look...maybe even take a dip.
Sight like this is quite common in the area as the orang asli community will make full use of the jungle resources to earn a living. Rows and rows of petai is quite a common sight during petai season. While some may dislike the petai due to its strong smell, there is no denying that it is one of the local delicacies much sought after.

Be prepared to face the difficulty of locating a good parking spot along the trunk road as the place is normally crowded on weekends and public holidays. Despite the popularity of this place, unfortunately, there is no proper parking facilities to cater to the visitors' needs. So the best place to park is still along the side of the road. But a word of caution though. Watch out for the buses and lorries which ply the route. They can sometimes be real nuisance.

No matter what, Lata Iskandar is definitely one of the best attractions in the area. So do come prepared. And one more thing...the water can be really cold.
