We have done some major travelling around Malaysia so far - don't think we have been off a vehicle for more than a few hours recently!
We stopped at Gua Musang on the jungle train - which sounds more exciting than it was. Gua Musang was smaller than expected (despite the guide book info) and it didn't seem to be a particularly touisty area. So we paid a random man (think he was a taxi!!) to bring us to the Cameron Highlands.
Anyway finally stopped in the Cameron Highlands - which are beautiful! We hired a motorbike today and did our own mini tour of the local area including a trip to Ye Olde Smokehouse, which is a mock tudor hotel and tea rooms and so incredibly British! It includes a very British bar, and the garden includes a lot of plants and flowers that we get back home, as we are quite high here the temperature is much cooler. There are strawberries everywhere as well! We haven't taste tested any... yet.
Tomorrow we are going off on a trekking tour to take in some more of the sights, then we should be heading back to Kuala Lumpur on the 6th Dec.
