Known for its cooling hilltop climate (temps barely rise above 30°C/80F here) and a variety of eco-conscious attractions, why not have a retreat from Malaysia’s sweltering heat at the Cameron Highlands! Giving you some peace and serenity from the hectic (and often heavily polluted) cityscape, the Cameron Highlands has fresh mountain air along with many nature-based activities: visiting hillside tea plantations, strawberry picking at agricultural farms, and also hiking on some of Malaysia’s best hiking trails! With its expansive land (roughly the size of Singapore) there’s much to explore and admire, from ornamental temples, beautiful resorts and garden bungalows. Or just have a relaxing cup of tea while admiring the endless horizon of rolling hills and untouched forests.

To ensure you the best comfort and convenience during your stay, here are the best Airbnb vacation rentals in the Cameron Highlands!

1. Convenient and affordable stay in Tanah Rata (from USD 38)

Travelling on a budget doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect to live in comfort. Luckily, this Airbnb is both comfortable and budget friendly! Located strategically in Tanah Rata, you’ll be within walking distance of a lot of Cameron Highland’s attractions. With a great view of the green hills from your balcony, this is the perfect place for you to enjoy your cup of tea while catching up on your reading, after a long day out! Tiring yourself after a day in the hills – hiking, visiting farms, or just walking to enjoy the cooling hill breeze – the cosy quarters of this rental is not only pleasing to your eyes with its warm colours, but also provides you with comforts such as a sizable queen bed, TV and Wi-Fi.
