Does going to strawberry, vegetable, honey, flower farms bore the daylight out of you when you visit Cameron Highlands? It does to me. That’s why I like to stay in my apartment whenever I am in Cameron Highlands.
But there is a new strawberry farm that is worth visiting. Mountain Strawberry Farm is a new place that has just opened (in May/June 2006). It is located high up in Gunung Brinchang, on your way to Sungai Palas Boh Plantation.
Besides picking your own strawberries, you can pet their rabbits, turkeys, ducks, chicken, goats, cats, spiders and there are lots of colourful birds too. We arrived early morning before they were opened but the workers were very friendly and generous. One of them allowed my husband to go into their birds’ enclosures to take close-up shots of the colourful canaries.
So, if there is only one place you want to go in Cameron Highlands, it has to be Gunung Brinchang where you can visit the Boh Plantation in Sungai Palas, go up to the highest point in Gunung Brinchang and to this strawberry farm.
