Brinchang is the most happening town in Cameron Highlands with the night market or pasar malam being the main attraction and most tourists are here for this night market. Tanah Rata is strategically located within the heart of Cameron Highlands where it is ‘sandwiched’ between the two major towns of Ringlet on one end and Brinchang on another. Coming here from Tapah, you will first reach Ringlet before reaching Tanah Rata. From here, you can continue on towards Brinchang.
Tanah Rata houses the main transportation hub of Cameron Highlands. The Freesia Bus Terminal here is the main hub for express buses. If you are coming here using bus from major cities like Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur, you will stop at the bus terminal. You can then continue on with your journey to the other parts of Cameron Highlands either through public transport or on foot.
Around the same vicinity is where you can find taxi services where you can make arrangements for pick-ups or day trips to the nearby attractions at affordable rates.
Getting around from Tanah Rata is very easy because of its significance in Cameron Highlands. There is a golf course located only 3 kilometers away where you get to enjoy a game of golf among some of the most scenic landscapes and cool weather around. If you are looking to visit the tourist attractions, you can get to Brinchang town which is only 5 kilometers away from Tanah Rata. On the other end, you will reach Ringlet town which is only about 8 kilometers away.
At Brinchang, you can find police station, hotels, apartments and condominiums and of course the very popular Brinchang night market known for its great food and wide variety of local produce. From there, you can continue on towards more attractions like tea plantations, flower and vegetable farms, strawberry farms and even bee farms, all of which are common favourites among visitors.
