- Cactus Valley – Perched on a hillside is this botanical show garden. It has a great collection of flowers and cacti of different shapes, sizes and colours. We easily spent an hour here meandering across the paths.
- Big Red Strawberry Farm – this was our next stop. The weather in the Cameron Highlands is perfect for growing a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Strawberries are popular and there are rows and rows of strawberry plants. You can pick you own strawberries but only between May/June to late October, when they are in season. They also grow lettuces, kale and other vegetables hydropinically. At the cafe, they have fresh salads using the lettuces they have grown themselves.
We then tried to catch the bus to the famous Boh tea plantation. It wasn’t far to walk (3km in total), but the topography here is hilly – lots and lots of steep hills with no walking paths, so walking wasn’t really an option. The bus didn’t turn up, nobody knew if it even went the tea plantations. It was rather frustrating.
