Cameron Highlands is the most popular of the highland retreats in Malaysia. Located at almost 2,000 meters at its highest point, Camerons offers visitors a moderate climate with daytime temperatures averaging around 25 degree celsius and 18 degree celsius at night. This makes the environment conducive for growing continental plants, fruits and vegetables while providing a cool escape for city-dwellers.The township of Camerons is itself divided into Tanah Rata, Brinchang and Ringlet.

Emerald tea plantations unfurl across valleys, and the air is freshened by eucalyptus - Malaysia's largest hill-station area feels instantly restorative. Temperatures in these 1300m to 1829m heights rarely top 30 degree celsius, inspiring convoys of weekenders to sip tea and eat strawberries here. Though technically in Pahang, the highlands are accessed from Perak.
