KL to TANAH RATA: Birthday In The Highlands!

We're in Tanah Rata!

To celebrate my 55th birthday we made plans to spend the next few days at Cameron Highlands. We could scarcely believe at it's been ten years since we last came.

We awoke at six and left our home forty minutes later. I hailed a six-seater Grab car to TBS, but for some reason the Grab car bearing the registration number VFL5758 driven by Mohammad Jasnie decided not to pick us up.

Brendan then booked another six-seater Grab car for a fare of RM31.00 (approximately USD7/EUR6) that duly arrived at a quarter past seven.

In that time the first Grab car did not budge from its location somewhere near Concorde Hotel, and Mohammad Jaanie eventually cancelled the ride!

We arrived at TBS at a quarter to eight and were dropped at the main gate (C) on Level 3.

Hoping to grab a quick breakfast we headed up to Level 4 to find all but Dunkin Donuts closed due to it being the holy month of Ramadan.

We settled on drinks at Dunkin Donuts and at precisely eight in the morning headed back down to Level 3.

We walked past the turnstile and security check then took an escalator down to Level 2 before making our way to Gate 5. We were allowed to board the Unititi bus bearing the registration number VED6544 five minutes later.

At precisely 8:35am the bus departed TBS. Forty minutes later we drove past the Jalan Duta Toll Plaza and headed north along the North South Expressway, well and truly on our way to Cameron Highlands.

Two hours into the journey the bus exited at Bidor to drop a passanger off before exiting at Tapah fifteen minutes later. The bus then made a fifteen minute pitstop at the rest area after the Tapah Toll Plaza.

The bus resumed its drive to Tanah Rata some 60 kilometres away which primarily consisted of twisting roads.

An hour of twists and turns later we arrived in the town of Ringlet where the bus stopped to refuel. A while later we arrived at the Tanah Rata bus station at precisely 12:40pm.
