If you want to escape Singapore’s heat, head to Cameron Highlands. Made up of a series of small towns embedded in the mountains on the north-western tip of Pahang state bordering Perak, it makes a great weekend getaway for nature lovers. The towns are littered with plantations for tea, strawberries, and other fruits and vegetables.
Cameron Highlands is a great destination for hiking. More than one-third of the Cameron Highlands is covered by thick forests, and you can find colour-coded trails in the eight surrounding mountains leading to waterfalls, vantage points, the Mossy Forest, and even Mount Brinchang.
