What to do at Cameron Highlands? Well, you cannot say that you have been to Malaysia Cameron Highlands if you haven't been to their tea plantations!
There are several tea gardens around and the two biggest players would be BOH Tea and Cameron Valley Tea.
For BOH Tea, they have two gardens, one at Ringlet, the other at Brinchang.
We visited the one at Brinchang. The road leading up to the tea plantation was winding and rather precarious. We were thankful to be behind two other cars which helped us pave the way up.
The drive up was scenic and certainly a different view from what we have in Singapore. It was an eye-opening experience for the little ones.
Here is BOH Tea Sungai Palas Garden! The hike up to the tea house wasn't supposed to be particularly challenging, but if your partner had to mind two city boys, and you had to carry a 10kg load, there was certainly a great sense of achievement when we reached the top!
Smiling faces but panting breaths.
We had our well-deserved tea break at the BOH Tea Sungai Palas Garden tea house while enjoying breathtaking views of rolling hills of the tea plantations. 3 slices of cake - chocolate cake, strawberry cheesecake, carrot cake, 2 cups of hot milk tea, 1 iced peach tea. All for a total of RM36. What a yummy treat!
After visiting BOH Tea Sungai Palas Garden, we drove down to S Corner Strawberry Farm for some strawberry plucking!
I read up on various strawberry farms before out trip up to Cameron Highlands. Some farms are not so accessible and may have steep driveways up to the entrance of the farms, so I decided to avoid those. S Corner Strawberry Farm is right beside the main road and has a huge parking area.

It costs RM30 for 2 people to pluck strawberries at S Corner Strawberry Farm. We were given a box which would hold about 500g of strawberries. They allowed my husband to go into the strawberry garden with my two boys. The strawberry garden was pretty large, and we were the only ones there. There were a lot of big and red strawberries hanging from the plants and my boys had lots of fun choosing and cutting those strawberries down.
The boys' strawberry harvest at S Corner Strawberry Farm! The strawberries were big, red, sweet and juicy! On top of the 500g of strawberries that we plucked, we also paid additional RM15 for another 1 kg of fresh and juicy strawberries!
There was also a mushroom garden within S Corner Strawberry Farm. You can also pay to pluck the mushrooms or buy packets of fresh ones. They had a very wide range of mushrooms and some really queer-looking ones!
We stopped by a retail mall on the way down from S Corner Strawberry Farm to Time Tunnel Museum.
My little girl was so delighted to be holding hands and walking with her two brothers!
The Time Tunnel Museum is located in the same stretch of shophouses at Kok Lim Strawberry Farm. It's located right beside the main road, so it's hard to miss. Just got to be really careful when parking and disembarking.
Time Tunnel Museum at Cameron Highlands
I wouldn't recommend to go Kok Lim Strawberry Farm. The boxes of strawberries sold at the shop were more expensive than S Corner Strawberry Farm, and they also looked much smaller.
The admission fees of Time Tunnel Museum was RM6 for adults and RM4 for children above 5 years old.
The museum was actually very well done with a lot of details. It really felt like walking back into the past.
My boys were very intrigued by the household items which looked so different in the past, like the television, iron, sewing machine.
They also had fun posing and taking lots of photographs. Certainly a very instagrammable tourist attraction too!
