Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands & Beyond

Why visit Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands and Beyond

The old hill stations of the Cameron Highlands are home to the Orang Asli tribes and still bear huge evidence of their colonial past. Here, it is possible to visit tea plantations, trek to waterfalls and local tribal villages or relax and play a round of golf. The Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur has a rich heritage full of colour and character which co-exists alongside all the trimmings one would expect from a modern metropolis. Always a fun start or end to a trip.

About Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands and Beyond

As with all capital cities there is masses to keep visitors occupied in KL. A modern city blended with a proud past. A melting pot of Malay, Chinese and Indian communities come together to make up the diversity of the city.  

Inland, just five hours by car from KL, is the National park of Taman Negara, a huge area spanning three states and home to some of the world’s oldest rainforests. Reached by river on traditional longboats this is a botanist’s paradise with most plants endemic to the region.

To the south of the capital is the small city of Melaka which can be visited in a day and has a fascinating old town full of Portuguese, Dutch, Islamic and Chinese buildings as well as some interesting museums.
