Tea plantation in Cameron Highlands
I have always had a certain weakness for Asian countries. The economic prices, the ease of moving on the road - although sometimes you leave your back -, the varied cuisine and the touch of cultural and religious exoticism make this continent one of my favorites to grab the backpack and enjoy a good holiday exploring New areas
On this occasion I repeated country, something quite unusual in me, and that is that during my first trip to Malaysia I left a few places to discover. When I first stepped on this territory, I only visited Kuala Lumpur and Melaka to jump over the puddle and take refuge in the little explored jungle of Sumatra.

This time we alternate islands -Tioman, Georgetown and Perhentians-, we calmly explore the amazing capital and avoid the suffocating heat through splendid trekking through the Cameron Highlands and its tea plantations.
For three weeks we mixed with the varied population and we could easily detect the ethnic and gastronomic differences between the entrenched Chinese and Indians who have lived alongside the Malays for many decades.
