LOCATION:
Cameron Highlands (or Tanah Tinggi Cameron in Malay) is located in the state of Pahang. Currently, there are two main roads that connect major towns in west coast of Peninsula Malaysia (such as Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Penang) to this popular highland resort town. The older access point is the Tapah - Ringlet route while the newer access has since been built from Simpang Pulai - Kg Raja.

Ringlet is located some 50 kilometres away from Tapah or 13 kilometres south of Tanah Rata. If you are driving on the old Tapah-Cameron Highlands route, Ringlet is the first town you will arrive at as you enter into the state border of Pahang from Perak.

DESCRIPTION:
In all honesty, few people will find anything interesting to see at this small town. At an elevation of about 1,200 metres above sea level, the climate is not particularly cool, as opposed to higher elevation towns like Tanah Rata or Brinchang. The town looks very typical of any lowland settlements in Peninsula Malaysia, with old shophouses, roadside parking spaces and slow-moving traffic.

There are a few outlets for basic supply purchases here, such as petrol station, sundry shops, restaurants, etc. Considering one may have driven for about one hour through the winding road of Tapah - Ringlet route, the town of Ringlet can possibly be an acceptable pit stop for some rest time or potty break, but nothing else.

Nonetheless, Ringlet is one of Cameron Highlands' main agricultural centre (together with Tanah Rata, Brinchang, Blue Valley, Tringkap and Kg Raja, they form pretty much the so-called Green Bowl of Peninsula Malaysia and even Singapore). There are a number of vegetable and fruit farms around the town but they are most likely not opened for tourists unlike those found in Tanah Rata as well as Brinchang.

MY VERDICT:
Nothing to see here, really.
