Nightlife in Cameron Highlands
Brinchang and the other towns in the Highlands for that matter, do not offer a pulsating nightlife scene, except for some restaurants that open until 10 pm. Thus, the place can get boring for night owls. But because I was with a group of cool people; the night in our huge rented apartment in Cameron Highlands, turned out to be a memorable night full of laughter, interesting stories, singing and a game of taboo, (which I arguably dominated.) It was a perfect time and setting to learn a little bit more about the people I decided to take a trip with.
So note to future visitors to Cameron Highlands: Unless you desire a quiet and cold evening for yourself, travel to Cameron Highlands, with family and friends. It’s always a good idea to warm your hearts with human companionship during that cold Cameron night.
And if there’s one thing this short weekend getaway to Cameron Highlands reminded me of, it would be one of my favorite movie quotes – “A place is only as good as the people in it.”
Where did we stay in Cameron Highlands?

During our trip to Cameron Highlands we wanted to stay as close to the public market in Brinchang as possible. The property we stayed at has since changed ownership, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other solid options in the area.
Many of the hillside apartments in Brinchang look quite similar. Therefore, it comes down to the way they are managed. I would suggest checking out the most highly rated places based on verified guest reviews before you book. At the time of writing these were the most positively reviewed properties:
How to find the best room in Cameron Highlands? Suggestions.
Instead of just booking a random place to stay in the Brinchang area it’s best to look at a map and find out exactly where you would like to stay.
Cameron Highlands is spread out, therefore if your seeking a remote, quiet place, versus one that’s convenient and close to service amenities then your selection would vary greatly. I suggest using one of these three large accommodation providers to find competitive prices and enough selection to suit your preferences.
We used www.agoda.com for our reservation in Brinchang. Since it’s the largest room site in Southeast Asia it had plenty of selection. At the time of writing they offered over 150 different properties in Cameron Highlands. Here is a link to their property list:
