How to get there
We took a day trip from Ipoh and hired a taxi for the day which picked us up at 9am, drove us around the Highlands and dropped us back to our hotel for about 6pm. This should cost about £65-70.00. We organised this with our hotel in Ipoh (M Boutique).
You can also get a bus from various other departure points (see HERE for alternatives) but it really doesn’t give you enough time to explore the Highlands in a day. Therefore, we would recommend that if you did this, to stay over in the Highlands.
Where to stay
The Lakehouse gets good reviews and is in a very good location to explore the Highlands.
We visited the Smokehouse and it was beautifully English and the service was good and s could recommend you look at this property too.
What to do
There are lots of things to do including a visit to the mossy forest, lavender plantations, a number or tea plantations and museums but we have picked just a few:
- Boh Tea Plantation and enjoy a lovely cup of Boh tea
- Smokehouse for afternoon tea – we had an afternoon tea for one, a hot chocolate and strawberry sundae for just £11 in a setting which could have been the UK on a hot summers day
- Sam Poh Temple is worth a visit on the way out and let the fishes kiss your fingers….try it!
Don’t forget your strawberry jam as a souvenir.
Where to eat
Singh Chapati Urban Restaurant is currently top on Trip Advisor for a reason. For tasty reasonably priced food you can’t go wrong.
