Chinyee from Kuala Lumpur sent me this beautiful card of misty morning at Sungai Palas Tea Plantation. She writes that the weather in Kuala Lumpur is very hot about 34 degrees Celcius at noon.
I hope the weather is a little cooler in Cameron Highlands. Being high up the mountains means it's cold and humid, with lots of mist in the early mornings and late evenings, but it sure looks beautiful.
Cameron Highlands, the smallest district in the Malaysian state of Pahang, was discovered over 120 years ago by Sir William Cameron. As a place with mild climate and temperatures around 18°C, it was considered to have the perfect weather conditions for establishing tea plantations. After almost 50 years, the region was finally developed and from the 1930s onwards, Cameron Highlands became Malaysia’s most popular hill station.
