One Spring Day in Cameron Highlands ♥

Past three months have been really tough for me due to studies. Tough subjects, worst timetable where I had classes everyday from 8-4 continuously for three months, exam every two weeks... Gosh, I wonder how I survived from that. So Carynn has suggested for a 2D1N trip to Cameron Highlands right after finals as a reward for our hard work for these three months. Basically it's like a healing trip where our main objective is to enjoy the chilly weather up there and steamboat. Yes, having steamboat in Cameron Highlands is da bomb! So we didn't visit much places and sightseeing except for Lavender Garden and BOH Tea Plantation. Yippie (Y)


Once I stepped into Lavender Garden, I was mesmerized by their beautiful decorations and the sea of colourful ever blooming flowers. You'll expect to see lots of beautiful flowers in this post later :)

Inspired by the love lock bridge in Paris, there's a love lock area near the entrance too.

Isn't it beautiful? Coincidentally there was a couple posing for their wedding photos aww :)

And of course there's lavender in Lavender Garden! We're so lucky to see the lavender was blooming! :D



Flowers picking area for RM2 each. Can I have the peach colour one please? :)

More and more flower sea! Trust me, it's way more beautiful if you see it in person :)

Must do thing when you're in Cameron Highlands - self pick strawberries! It was not strawberry season hence we just give it a pass. 



Happy group picture before we leave yay ^_^

The next day, we went to BOH Tea Plantation for some cool fresh air and fyi it has been listed as one of the must-visit place in Cameron Highlands. BOH Tea Plantation has a total of 8,000 acres planted with tea and it's the largest tea plantation in Southeast Asia. Not forgot to mention that the road journey to BOH Tea Plantation is very narrow and winding so do give a honk to let oncoming traffic know there is a car coming. It was kind of fun to honk the horn after a while :P

The view of green rolling hills, with the neat regular rows of tea plants, is truly breathtaking and refreshing!


We girls then decided to walk down to the tea plantation for more magnificent view, it was a great experience!


Couldn't resist to take more selfie because the place is too amazing! YAY

With the whole tea plantation behind us ♥ I wish I can wake up to this view every morning :)

The Sungai Palas Tea Centre does offer a free guided factory tour every 30 minutes of how the tea leaf is processed, from sorting, drying and so on. Apart from that, you may drop by their cafe and pamper yourself with a nice cup of tea, cakes and enjoy the enchanting ambiance and view of BOH Tea Plantation. I guess I will visit this place every weekend if I stay in Cameron Highlands :P What a great way to end this tiring semester, cheerios!
