Cameron Highlands, Malaysia Photo diary .

Malaysia is a country rich in culture and gastronomy. It surrounded by nature, paradisiacal beaches, mountains, jungles and in the case of Cameron Highlands, tea fields.

If you visit Cameron Highlands you can explore the mangroves or enjoy the afternoon drinking a cup of tea accompanied by a scone with cream.

It is located 1,500 meters above sea level and therefore its climate is very mild, between 10℃ and 24℃ .

This place owes its name to the Englishman William Cameron, a British explorer that discovered this place in 1885 and decided to start with the tea cultivation.

Although tea is originally from South China, today Malaysia is one of the largest tea producers in the world, ranking 24 worldwide.

The picturesque little town where I stayed using Airbnb was Tanah Rata, small and with few restaurants, the local bus trip from Ipoh lasts about two and a half hours and the road has more curves than a race track.
