Best Tips & Seasonal Guide
Visiting Cameron Highlands is actually very easy and straightforward. For locals, coming here is a breeze as you can easily drive here or take a bus that comes from most major towns and cities. As a general guide:
- Accommodation during peak season – Ideally, you should stay in new apartments that offer many facilities. Avoid apartments with very low rates as you would need to compromise with hygiene, cleanliness, location, parking space and such. At times, you have unprofessional hosts as well.
- Driving here – the Malaysian traffic laws are practiced and enforced in Cameron Highlands. You can park at most designated boxes around but if you are issued parking summon, it will be RM30 within the first 7 days and you can do this at any of the local police stations.
- Emergencies – There is a police station operating in every town in Cameron Highlands like Ringlet, Tanah Rata and Brinchang.
