Checking Out the Cactus Valley, Cameron Highlands

On Monday morning, right after we checked out from hotel and had breakfast in Tanah Rata, we went to the town of Brinchang in Cameron Highlands. The first place we checked once we were in  Brinchang was the Cactus Valley which hosts many varieties of cactus and whole lot of other flowering plants. The entrance ticket to this place is RM 4/pax. There are also gardening shops near the entry gate and parking lot where I could not resist purchasing some potted flowering plants at relatively cheap price.

This arrangement looks like the Borobudur Temple made of Cactus.

Mini cactus galore. RM 10 for 3 pots.

As mentioned above, this place is also a home of many flowering plants. I really had a good time walking around this place, admiring the beautiful beds of flowers and taking photos of them.

Pretty Hydrangeas.

In the end, it was a pot of pink of Hydrangea which I brought home from one of Cactus Valley's garden shops. My husband and I felt bad for not giving any business to the other garden shop ran by an Indian man opposite the one we bought the flower plant from. When he noticed we carried a bag of hydrangea pot from his competitor to the parking lot, referring to his hydrangeas, he shouted "Ini tak mau? (You don't want this?) Aiyooo..."
