Transportation - better to take the espress bus from Puduraya bus station in the early morning. After 5 hours of journey, you will arrive Cameron Highland at around 1 or 2 pm. Registered for a half day or whole day tour, or your hotel can do it for you for the same dollar amount. Then, relax yourself, hang around for the rest of the day. On day 2, begin with the tour and enjoy mother nature with experience local guide. They will tell you the history as well as funny things at Cameron Highland. If you are taking the half day tour, you would be able to catch the 1:30pm bus back to Kuala Lumpur and save some time!
Last but not least - I lost my backpack during my coach transfer from Tanah Rata (Cameron Highland) back to Kuala Lumpur. I was not aware of this until I arrived KL which was 730pm in the evening already. I was panic and the only thing I had was the coach ticket which had the address of the bus company on it. The only thing I could do was to find the bus company under heavy rainfall, and asked for help near Puduraya bus station. Lucky me, the lady there was so friendly, asked me to calm down and told me that they already got a phone call from the transfer station, knowing I had left my luggage there. And the best thing was that they had arranged the next bus to bring the luggage back to me. During my wait for the next bus to come, which was 2 1/2 hours, though tired and hungry, the lady offered a chair for me which was the best comfort I could have. By 10pm, the bus finally arrived and the bus driver saw a me right away. It was good to have my luggage back, really. Many thanks to all the people who had given me a hand during my journey in Malaysia! Terima Kasih!
