Last weekend, Me and my husband going up to the hill to Cameron Highland, Pahang. We decided to take a bus rather than drive. For not overspend money i guest...hahaha..
Going to Pudu Sentral
If you are travel from kuala lumpur which is near public transport, it is easy to go to Pudu Sentral.
By Train - Kelana jaya Line - Transit at Masjid Jamek Station to take Star Lrt
Komuter - Transit to Bank Negara Station to take Star Lrt
Star Lrt - Station Plaza Rakyat
Bus to Cameron Highland
There are few buses going to Cameron Highland and depart from PUDU Sentral.
Major Operator : 1) Unititi Express = RM 35.00 - You can call to ask about the availability of ticket ( Kak Sal - 013-6333740 )
2) Alisan Golden Coach Express = RM 30.00 (Discount)
3) Kurnia Bestari (RM 35.00)
We arrived at 0845 and when i ask about the ticket, kak sal said that Bus just want to depart and if want, the bus will waited. So, we buy the ticket and rush to the Platform 14 to run to bus..hihihi..like amazing race...If i miss the bus, i have to wait to 10 am bus and it will wasting hour time.
The Unititi bus offer a very convinient seat which is 2, 1 seater (VIP Seat)
So comfort - better than take a AirAsia Plane Lol..hahaha
The journey take 4hours 30minutes and bus will stop at Tapah rest area about 10minutes before we reach to the mountain. - At this RnR, better we get prepared, coz the bus will not stop anymore and it take 2 hours before we reach to Cameron highland..If you want to 'PhiPhi" or 'Phu Phu' just do it at Tapah RnR..
As reach there, we have a lunch at Malay food court near the Unititi Express Bus Station.(Near town Tanah Rata).
Strawberry Park Resort - Cameron Highland
We take taxi to go to Strawberry park resort. The resort is located near the berinchang Area and the location is up to the mountain.
Cost of taxi to Strawberry Park Resort - RM 15 - RM 20
It takes about 20 Minutes to reach there and a little bit far from town.
We arrived at hotel about 1.15pm and the room only available at 2pm..the receptionist is very helpful and there are waiting area before room are ready. you also can go to Tour Desk for taking a optional tour and the price is reasonable.
This is the Lowest Category of room at Strawberry Park Resort (More Cheaper than others) The price is RM 295.00 and because we went during peak season which is School Holiday, there are Surcharge of RM 100.00. So, Total amount we paid is RM 395.00 Per room per night. A little bit expensive but if you go during low season, the price is more reasonable. The room is large and can fit it Think 2 extra bed..hahaha..And most likely is the Toilet.Very big and nice interior.. I love the Bathroom and make me feel want to stay longer inside there..hahahaha...

The waiters suggest to go to Tudor Lounge to enjoy live band.So, we go to Tudor Lounge and enjoy the live band and the Duo's is very good and we enjoy their shows. and my husband is perform while one both of us in the lounge...hahahaha..
The show's ends at 1145 and time to sleep for babymoon..hhahahha
