Cameron Highlands

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

This postcard of the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia comes from Nuru, who also lives in the country. Nuru tells me that tea leaves are also a common sight in Malaysia, a fact that I am pretty familiar with. The area, located about 200 km from the capital, Kuala Lumpur, was named after Sir William Gordon Cameron, who was a colonial officer that visited the area in the 1880s. The Cameron Highlands are known for having a year-round wet season, with most rainfall taking place October and November and the least between January and February. It has been a major tea growing region of the country since 1926. Definitely a beautiful place! I have always believed that Malaysia must be one of the most beautiful countries in the world and it seems that my instincts were quite right. Thank you for a great postcard Nuru!

  1. Fields of tea! This is one of my wished travels. I’ve been in the only place in Europe when they grew tea last summer: Azores islands. I’ve never got a postcard like yours, tough. It’s incredible how postcards made us travel…

    • That is simply wonderful to hear someone say! I have been looking at so many of these postcards and thinking that I’d love to travel there because of this postcard and then to know that somebody is actually doing it is giving me hope for my future traveling plans! 🙂
