Sungai Palas Tea Plantation~

Hi people!!! How r u? Hope that u r in d pink of health!! I am busy doing nothing and suddenly the image of my old blog appear in my mind.. Let’s do some writing!!

I went to Cameron highland few weeks ago. Cameron what?! Where in the earth is that? Is it some where in India?? Cameron Highlands actually is in Pahang is one of Malaysia's most popular tourist destinations, a collection of peaceful townships perched 1500 meters high on a nest of serene mountains. Cooling resorts, tea plantations and strawberry farms sprawl lazily across lush, the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday.

It was a great place after all.. It is located on top of a mountain, far far away from the city, so it is a quite place for a perfect holiday. First of all, we went to the Sungai Palas Tea Plantation. It is a Boh tea plantation located in Brinchang about 2km away from Kea Farm Market or 5km after town. It has its own tea center, visitor gallery and show factory. The road is very narrow I would say. And after driving for about 15 minutes, we finally reached to the parking area. And from there, we have to walk about another 15 minutes. The scenic is just breathtaking; walking along the tea plantation is a great experience for me. I would really treasure that moment. From far we can already see the restaurant or the cafĂ©.

 our breakfast..

After spending some time to have breakfast while enjoying the beautiful panorama, we went to souvenir shop to buy some fresh tea that were not out yet in the shop. Besides, we also did not did not want to miss out the experiences to be in the tea factory. We were shown the procedure on how teas were produced. The Sungai Palas Tea Center is free to visit and open daily from 9am to 4.30pm, but closes on Mondays.
