So we left Kuala Lumpur and had a five hour bus ride to Cameron Highlands, which is up in the hills and has a much cooler and wetter climate. We had a delicious curry at the cost of under 2 pounds and booked our selves on an adventure tour for the following day.
The tour started when we got into a 4x4, I was in the back with 5 others and it was the bumpiest ride ever and we were falling about laughing and screaming (somehow Gigs managed to get the front seat!) We drove into a clearing in the rainforest and started the 3 hour trek to find the Rafflesia flower, the largest in the world and native to South East Asia. It was very hard work as it was very muddy and had to climb over and under trees and streams!
After the rainforest we drove to the aboriginal village for a blowpipe demonstration, before visiting a tea plantation and process factory in the afternoon and a butterfly park. It was a very full day and tommorow we have another 5 hour drive to Penang.
