Last January, we went to Cameron Highlands for a quick weekend getaway. During our stay there, my mom booked us rooms in The Arundina which is a guest house in Tanah Rata.
I loved our stay in this guest house as it really gave us that feeling of being in an actual home in the mountains. It’s a simple, no frills place and is quiet at night as they have a no-noise policy after 10pm which is a huge plus for me. I just cannot stand noise at night – heavy feet and closing doors counted.
During my family’s vacation here in KL, we all went to Cameron Highlands for a quick getaway from the city and to catch a cool breeze. My mom and her boyfriend drove up first and we followed during the weekend when Alvin had no work.
For those who aren’t familiar with Cameron Highlands, it’s Malaysia’s version of the Philippines’ Baguio. It’s a district of the state of Pahang which is high up in the mountains.
Since it’s in the mountains, Cameron Highlands is pretty cold and can be a great escape from the rotisserie that is Kuala Lumpur. Seriously. What is it with the heat these days? I feel like I’m one of those Kenny Rogers’ chickens every time I’m out in the city streets. And if you start telling me that it’s already summer, I’ve got a comeback for you: Heavy. Afternoon. Rains! Climate Change right there, everybody.
