Cameron Highland Butterfly Farm

Vipul Mehta
Butterfly Farm – There’s a butterfly farm as well but it costs extra so we decided to skip it.Food:Kumar Restaurant is one of the most famous South Indian places to eat. It has cheap veg & non-veg food options which are delicious too! Definitely a Do. Another Do is Sri Brinchang which is right next to Kumar. The ones who like North Indian food can eat at Singh Chapati while the city dwellers can always enjoy the free wifi at Starbucks.Transport:Bicycles are available on rent to roam around the place. So are motorbikes at inexpensive prices.At this point on 18 April after enjoying the scenic beauty of Cameron Highlands, we had two options. Our next destination was Perhentian Islands which are a good 8 hour journey from Cameron. Either we could spend another night at Cameron and go the next day. There are mini-vans available for RM 125 which take you to Cameron to Perhentian Islands. Or we could take the night bus via the nearby city of Ipoh and spend the night on the bus and reach the islands in the morning itself. We decided on the latter, packed our bags and went straight to the Tanah Rata bus depot for the next connecting bus towards Perhentian Islands. And so we spent the night of 18 on the road and in the morning were on our way to the mesmerizing Perhentian Islands.Bonus Tip: Take direct bus from Cameron Highlands to Ipoh Bus Stand and then from Ipoh Bus Stand to this place called ‘Kuala Besut’. This is where the ferry to Perhentian runs. Don’t take bus from Ipoh to any other connecting place. If you do, at 4 in the morning the bus will drop you at the bus stand and you will be stranded in the middle of nowhere unnecessarily looking for cabs.
