We had a wonderful vacation on Cameron Highlands this time even the climate not as cold as expected. It was relax and easy holiday for us without heavy traffic congestion. Never forget we had the 'best' Teh Tarik (our preference) at Brinchang, love the different dining experience at Water Cress Valley Restaurant, also realized that not 'all' charcoal steamboats at Cameron Highlands are good...haha!
Too bad the Restaurant SKG had closed down...and we missed the chance to visit the Famous My Lord's Cafe...both located at Tanah Rata.
We just simply Love the cool air (even not as cold as those days...) and the climate on the Highlands. We will try our very best to visit the highlands every year. Do you? :)
History of Cameron Highlands
"In 1885,William Cameron, a government Surveyor, discovered a plateau at an elevation of 4500 -5600 feet above sea level.He then brought this part of Pahang into History,thus naming it the Cameron Highlands. From 1896 - 1902, the narrow path to the Highlands was widened and improved.Meanwhile surveys were carried out to identify the actual plateau in this area. In 1925, Sir George Maxwell paid a visit and its was then decided that the Cameron Highlands,which is situated in the present Tanah Rata and Brinchang areas, be developed into a Hill Station. Between 1926 - 1931 this area was zoned into areas reserved for the Department of Agriculture,Township and Residential Sites, Aras of Services , National Park ,General Adminstration and Recreational areas. After the Japanese occupation interest to develop further was revived but progress until the 1960s was hindered due to Emergency.After the termination of the Emergency,the Hill Station was carefully developed into a popular resort which not only attracted local tourists but overseas tourists as well."
