Cameron Santorini: A New Santorini-Inspired Attraction That Lets You Ditch Your Passport For A Snap

Cameron Santorini in Cameron Highlands

We can’t all get ourselves to Greece just for a snap with the famed blue-and-white buildings there. The closest that most of us can get to an European vacation to see these icons up-close are legit Santorini dupes in good ole’ Malaysia. And that’s not an impossible feat.

Enter Cameron Santorini. The aptly-named and recently-opened attraction in Brinchang melds together the best of Malaysia’s famed Cameron Highlands and Greece’s iconic Santorini – think hills blooming with flowers alongside blue and white structures all around you.

There seems to be a new attraction opening their doors in Cameron Highlands every other week – we were just #blessed with the whimsical Hobittoon Village. Not that we’re complaining.

Another spot to add to our itinerary on upcoming trips to the hill station is Cameron Santorini, a new kid on the block that just opened on 5th April 2024. It’s located just across Water Cress Valley, and about a 10-minute drive from other popular attractions in the area like Cameron Highlands Flora Park.

Dubbed a “Mini Santorini” by locals, this spot brings to Cameron Highlands a collection of blue-and-white “houses” made to resemble the ones on the famous Greek island. One of them is even crowned with an eye-catching blue dome.

These photo zones are connected by pebbled walkways and pristine white stairs that further add to the Greek island vibes. Along your way, you’ll spot other neat photo features such as windmills, blue pools, and arched doorways – and, of course, flowers in bloom.

Do take note that the attraction is perched on a hill, and the steps can get steep, so wearing comfy shoes is highly recommended. Driving up here can also be difficult, but there are parking spots near the entrance.
