Cameron Highlands Part 8: The Sungei Palas Tea Centre

Continuing with my Cameron Highlands series hahaha I'm sooo behind.

On our way back to Kuala Lumpur we decided to drop by the new Sungei Palas Tea Centre operated by Boh Plantations since the previous attempt was not successful.

The Tea Centre is home to a tea outlet, a souvenir and tea shop as well as an exhibition area with comprehensive information about the tea manufacturing process. The factory is nearby too which you can take a tour and it's free entry to everyone.

As we drove up, we saw the cliff that we've stopped previously before. We decided to stop by again this round and took a breather. This place have a breathtaking view of the whole plantation.

From the cliff, we saw one Defender approaching...

Look closer and you can see the tea centre and the staff quarters.
