BOH Tea Plantation is a Gorgeous Spot in the Cameron Highlands

I never fancied myself to be a tea drinker; however, one of my top destinations in visiting Malaysia had always been the famous rolling tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands. 

The same region, also famous for their bountiful strawberry harvest, is a bit of an anomaly in South East Asia for its ability to produce such great crops on a nearly continual basis throughout the year.

In being located almost one mile above sea level, the Cameron Highlands are removed from the heat that the nearby cities are accustomed to seeing. 

With daily rain showers and cooler temperatures, crops flourish, and the BOH Tea Plantation, Malaysia's largest with over 5 square miles of planted tea, is the shining gem that foreigners and Malays alike go out of their way to see. Locals visit here to stock up on tasty teas and tourists flock here to try out the exotic drinks.

Due to the location of the plantation, many tourists stay is nearby cities and then take buses to tour the crops. For travelers staying in Penang hotels or any nearby city can often find brochures about the plantation in the hotel’s lobby. It’s a good idea to check out pamphlets and get background information about the plantation before you go.

This way you will have a better idea about the teas you would like to try.

Buda and Pest – A Tale of Two Cities in Hungary

The capital city of Hungary is known to be one of the world's most beautiful cities. Cut in half with the Danube, the river takes a striking place in the make up of the city as well as being one of the natural highlights for visitors. 

Prior to the formation of the city now known as Budapest, the cities were actually separated by the river into their comparably and aptly named parts: Buda and Pest.

The segments of the city are not just separated by the river, but make up unique features in the city of Budapest based on the history from long ago. 

If Buda could be described as having sites relating back to years past, Pest would symbolize all things present and future in being the home of Hungary's Parliament and modern government. Those wanting to stay longer by renting one of the many apartments in Budapest might want to keep the following sights in mind when deciding on which half of the city to stay in during an extended stay.
