Cameron Highlands, Pahang (Malaysia)

Tanah Rata town.
Starbucks at Tanah Rata

Brinchang town. Hopelessly congested.

With its temperate climate, Cameron Highlands have been my favourite hill resort in Malaysia.

I haven't been back in two years so on this visit I was curious to see if there have been any changes.

Oh boy, was I surprised! I noticed a lot of development has taken place in the two tourist towns of Brinchang and Tanah Rata. There are more hotels in the moderate and budget classes. More new cafes and restaurants which for those who live to eat will be most welcome news. The pub at Tanah Rata, where you can have a drink and watch live soccer telecasts, is still going strong.

And Starbucks has come to Tanah Rata. Surely now McDonald's will not want to be left out of the action.

The best thing that has come to Cameron Highlands is the free Wi-Fi everywhere. For netizens, WOW!

Cameron Highlands is booming!
"The hills are alive".
