There are two main cactus centres in Cameron Highlands: Cactus Valley and Cactus Point. Each is home to a large assortment of cacti, with angry spines big and small growing from plants of all different shapes, colours, and sizes. You’ll see cacti that come from various parts of the globe, as well as some that are pretty old. Both centres have other plants on display too. Stroll through the green space and observe the many varieties of cacti as well as purchase these potted plants as souvenirs.
 
 
       
   
 

Cameron Highlands is the only place in Malaysia where strawberries grow.  When this dainty fruit is in season from May to August, you are allowed to enter the farm and pluck your own strawberries. You would want to try them fresh off the farm, with a dollop of cream on the side. Strawberry is also in everything here, from ice cream to jam, milk shake, juice, waffles and even strawberry with chocolate fondue – an absolutely delight if you are a fan of strawberries. Local strawberry farms to visit include Big Red Strawberry, Strawberry Farm Kea, Healthy Strawberry Farm, Kok Lim Strawberry Farm, and Raaju Hill Strawberry.
 
 
       
   
 

Drop by Cameron Lavender Garden, you’ll find carpets of lavender in various shades and species, from Hokkaido lavender to Mona lavender and Taiwan lavender. Their scent fills the enclosed garden, which protects the lavender from the fickle weather. One thing you definitely have to check off the list is tasting the lavender soft-serve ice cream. Lilac in color and lightly floral in smell, the sweet, milky and light lavender taste of the ice cream is certainly interesting. You can also buy an assortment of goods made from lavender to take home as an unusual gift or souvenir.
 
 
       
   
 

One of the arguably most interesting museums you can find in Malaysia can be found in Cameron Highlands. The Time Tunnel Museum pays homage to local culture and bygone times through over 1,000 artefacts, photographs and memorabilia. If you’re born in the 1980s and earlier, a lot of the artifacts found in Time Tunnel Museum will hit you with a strong sense of nostalgia. The best part is that it’s interactive as much as it is educational. You are welcome to pose with the props as you order a drink in an old kopitiam, run your grandmother’s kitchen, or ride a vintage motorcycle.
 
 
       
   
 

The mossy forest is a natural environment that grows only at the highest elevations of Cameron Highlands and other mountain ranges across Malaysia. At such heights, low-level clouds in the sky driven by winds, blanket the forests with constant mist and moisture - creating an ideal biotope for moss, ferns, lichen and orchids. This moist tropical evergreen forest is also a rich repository for a varied set of montane creatures, encompassing insects, snakes, frogs, birds and mammals unique to this chilly atmosphere. You can explore the mossy forest through a boardwalk 2km before the peak of Gunung Brinchang, beginning from a clearing along the main road.
 
 


 
       
   
 

If playing golf is your idea of a leisure getaway, you might want to check out the Sultan Ahmad Shah Golf Course. Tucked between Brinchang and Tanah Rata, this 18-hole course is the only one you can find in Cameron Highlands. With the chilly air, it certainly makes you feel like you are in a different continent. Equipment is available to rent onsite and the course provides nice scenic views over the mountains and tea plantations.
