Driving from Melaka to Cameron Highlands- which highway?

Hi There!

Need help. We are travelling with 3 young children driving fm JB to Melaka for a wedding. We r heading to CHighland fm Melaka. Where shud we stay d night? in Melaka, KL or any other places in between (somewhere in Seremban/Selangor/Perak?) before continuing our journey? Before Sg Besi exit, we understand there is another highway (NSE?) to go to Ipoh or Simpang Pulai exit? Please advise....tqvm =)

Its really up to you where you want to stay the night, its your holiday.

If you chose to do so, you can bypass Kuala Lumpur from the NSE, by turning into the same highway going towards Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Follow the signboards saying "Ipoh".

Buy a roadmap or GPS if you really can't manage.

For a less winding road up, take the North-South Highway (PLUS) and exit at Simpang Pulai. Make sure you do not miss the turn-off towards Cameron Highlands. Then just follow the road. Another junction much further up will lead you to either Cameron Highlands (Brinchang/Tanah Rata) or Gua Musang. Make sure you DO NOT head towards Gua Musang.

For the trip down, I suggest you take the old road towards Tapah. It is much more scenic and you can see the Orang Asli villages by the roadside. You may make a stop at the souvenir stalls at Lata Iskandar waterfall and just take a quick break there before descending all the way down.
