I have no idea there’s a strawberry farm in Genting Highlands until last week. Went there for a visit. Not big, not too small. Not only strawberry but flowers and vegetables. Cannot compare with Cameron Highlands of course.

The Genting Highlands Strawberry Leisure Farm is a popular tourist attraction in Gohtong Jaya, nestled directly at town opposite the Mawar and Bunga Raya Apartments. The farm can easily be reached by taking left from the roundabout past Hotel Seri Malaysia (if coming from Karak Highway), and following the road all the way to its end. Strawberries are not the only cultivations – mushrooms, herbs, flowers and hydroponic vegetables are also grown here commercialy in adjoining nurseries. Besides the farm’s marketplace, visitors can also purchase strawberries by plucking them directly and paying by weight from 100gm onwards – this is a very popular family activity.
Once we got in, we could smell strawberries!
In fact, my first time seeing strawberry plant, I’ve never been to one in OZ last time 😛 Wanted to go but ended up didn’t find the place.
Address: No. 1, Lot 3707, Jalan Jati 2, Bandar Gohtong Jaya, Genting Highlands, 69000 Genting Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia
Bought a box of strawberry there for RM15, I heard Cameron’s is cheaper and tastes better. The one we bought at the farm was tasteless…
Tried the strawberry milkshake (RM11.55), I like! Very refreshing.
Walked further in, we found Lavender farm.
Previously in Adelaide, I didn’t get to visit Lavender farm because that time was summer and that area was closed due to fire hazard. Never thought that I would visit one. Well… Cannot compare of course but at least this is my first time come so close to so many lavenders. During the previous Perth trip, I only went to the shop selling lavender products, only a few lavender plants there.
Aside from strawberry and lavender, other flowers were there too such as rose, morning glory and those that I have no idea of the names. There’s also shops selling souvenirs and tid bits along the way before heading out.
Not to forget the mushroom farm.
Oh! Entrance is RM8 per adult.
That’s all for now. Hope the haze will go away soon! It’s making people sick…
