“Walking distance about 9 min 700m from Somersquare. Quick facts: The Smokehouse is built in 1937 in the style of a traditional timber framed English inn, complete with nooks and crannies, open fireplaces and crooked floors. You can relax and simply watch the world go by while enjoying a meal in the beautiful garden, or in the cooler months, you can make yourself at home inside by the open fireplaces. Recommendation: Afternoon tea from 11am to 6pm. ”

The RM8 million 42-hectare park has six areas C Rose, orchid, English, Herb and Orchid Gardens and a research and information centre where tourists can also buy souvenirs. The Park was launched on June 14. The brainchild of Malaysian Research and Development Institute (MARDI), the Park received 100,000 visitors annually. The idea to turn the former research station opened in 1926 by the British to an agrotechnology park came from the Agriculture Minister Datuk Dr Effendi Norwawi three years ago. The British handed over the park to MARDI some 22 years ago. The Park is actually MARDI's oldest research station in the country and since Cameron Highland is a popular tourist destination, MARDI has followed through on the idea to turn it into an Agrotechnology Park. ”
