5 Mistakes We Made When Visiting Cameron Highlands

Cameron Highlands has been on our radar for a few years. However, we kept putting it off because of its inaccessibility from Singapore.

A few months ago, we decided to go for a week-long trip to various Malaysia cities, including Cameron Highlands, Ipoh and Penang.

As someone who stays and works in Singapore, I have to admit that I am constantly looking for short getaways to neighboring countries.
