Cameron Highlands, Sight of England in Malaysia

Share


Mengunjungi lokasi ini membuat anda tidak merasa ada di Malaysia. Suhu yang dingin, bangunan klasik eropa ala arsitektur Inggris, deretan rumah tua dan kehijauan padang golf adalah pemandangan sehari-hari di Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

Visiting this place makes you feels like you're not in Malaysia. Cold temperatures, European classic style buildings, row of old houses and green golf course are daily sight here in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

Hills and tea plantation


Terletak di barat laut Pahang, sekitar 200 kilometer dari Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands saat ini adalah salah satu tujuan utama turis selain Kuala Lumpur. Kota yang memiliki luas hampir setara Singapura ini terletak di dataran tinggi yang pertama kali ditemukan oleh pengukur tanah dari Inggris, William Cameron yang kini menjadi nama wilayah ini.

Located in the northwest of Pahang, approximately 200 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands is currently one of the major tourist destinations other than Kuala Lumpur. The town is actually the size of Singapore, located in high hills first discovered by a British surveyor, William Cameron, and that's where the name come from.


tea plantation everywhere

William Cameron menemukan dataran tinggi ini saat inspeksi wilayah di masa kolonial Inggris. Namun tidak serta merta Cameron Highlands langsung dibangun, usai ditemukan hampir selama 40 tahun wilayah ini dibiarkan hingga akhirnya dibangun pada masa Sir George Maxwell menjadi kota dengan deretan rumah, hotel, padang golf, sekolah dan berbagai bangunan lain yang masih dapat dilihat hingga kini.

William Cameron discovered this area during an inspection in British colonial era, but the development wasn't directly after it discovered. After nearly 40 years being untouched after it discovered by William Cameron, the development began in the Sir George Maxwell era. Houses, golf courses, schools and hotels were built as you can see today.





Sejarah inilah yang membuat Cameron Highlands bagaikan bagian dari Inggris, ditemukan oleh William Cameron, dibangun pada masa administrator Inggris dan dengan gaya arsitektur Inggris.

This history is what makes Cameron Highlands seems like a part of England. Discovered by William Cameron, built during British administrator and with British architectural style.



Di masa liburan, Cameron Highlands sangat penuh. Deretan hotel yang terus dibangun membuktikan derasnya turis yang berdatangan ke Cameron Highlands. Meski ala Inggris, penduduk di Cameron Highlands sebagian besar adalah keturunan Cina sehingga di deretan toko dan tempat makan anda akan melihat toko-toko dengan tulisan mandarin dan dengan mudah menemukan masakan Cina. A great combination indeed.

In the holiday season, Cameron Highlands is very crowded. Row of hotels and new ones being built shows how dense the tourist visit to Cameron Highlands. Although the sight might be like in England, the residents in Cameron Highlands are mostly Chinese so you can easily see mandarin writings everywhere and also Chinese cuisine are everywhere here. A great combination indeed.
