Cameron Highlands Brinchang Night Market

What’s there to do in Cameron Highlands when all the usual day attractions are closed? Visit A Cameron Highland night market, specifically the Brinchang Night Market!

Another name it goes by is Pasar Malam Cameron Highlands. It used to be close to the Star Regency Hotel And Apartment but has  moved to make way for a new development in Brinchang!

But the move has not affected its popularity. Every weekend, the market is still as busy as ever! Which tends to create considerable traffic in Brinchang!

Brinchang Weekend Night Market/ Golden Hill Night Market

After its move, Brinchang Night Market sometimes goes by the name, Golden Hill Night Market too. Or simply pasar malam to the locals!

That’s clearly because of the close proximity to the Golden Hill Apartments!
