Cameron Highlands Brinchang

Located further up from Tanah Rata, pass a 18-hole Cameron Highlands golf course with undulating fairways with meandering stream and greens, and some Cameron Highland hotel, you will reach the town of Brinchang.

As you enter from south side you will see a colorful Hindu temple on the right. You will notice that Brinchang has a steep gradient, not at all flat like Tanah Rata. It is also smaller and it is quite difficult to get a good parking space.

 A snapshot view of Brinchang town main square.

The central square is actually a parking lot. What was interesting was, when evening comes, this place becames alive with the night market! Well times are changed, guess the night market must have caused inconvenience to many that they have moved it to another location.

It is now located at the street between Cactus Valley and Star Regency Hotel Apartments. With ample parking space in front of Brinchang Police Station.

Parking can be indeed a problem here, especially if you are staying in Brinchang. As the number of parking bays are rather limited.

Parking problems aside, there is a Sam Poh Buddhist Temple, a popular sight for the tourist. It can be access via a road just next to the Hindu temple.

By the central parking square, is the Balai Kraftangan, a handicraft souvenir center where you might pick up some local handicrafts souvenirs.

 Jasmine Hotel

Plenty of Cameron Highland hotels around ranging from good to poor. Overlooking the main square at the northern end is the Jasmine Holiday Apartments. An attractively furnished flat with cooking facilities, barbecue and rooftop garden.

Another notable hotel is the Rosa Passadena, nestled in a newly develop area at the west end of Brinchang. It has basement parking available.

Some other recommended accommodations in Brinchang includes Country Lodge, Parkland Hotel, Rainbow Hotel.

Food wise, the Chinese Steamboat is ever popular dish around Cameron Highlands. With the cooler nighttime climate, a hot meal is ever welcome to warm a chilled body!
