When not working, locals spend their time on snooker, chatter and beer among the shophouses and restaurants. Consequently, Ringlet has very little tourist development with barely any hotels providing basic accommodation (the sole exception is The Lakehouse, a colonial boutique hotel a few km north of town). The town itself offers very little interest except for lunch or snacks at the food court before heading up to Tanah Rata
10km away. Further down the main road, visitors will pass by the Sultan Abu Bakar Dam, a large ochre-coloured lake that supplies some of the water in Cameron Highlands, before reaching Habu, a neighbouring agricultural and residential district where the famous Boh Tea Plantation
resides in the valley. Also located next to Ringlet town is Bertam Valley
, a rural agricultural settlement that forms an alternative gateway to Cameron Highlands from Kuala Lipis or Raub via Sungai Koyan through Pos Betau.
