Sungai Palas

Tea Plantation, Brinchang

Sungai Palas Garden is a tea plantation located in Brinchang about 5km north from town or 2km away from Kea Farm Market. Owned and managed by Boh Tea, it complements their main estate at Habu in Ringlet, featuring its very own tea center, visitor gallery and show factory. Likewise, the Sungai Palas tea garden is also shut up within its own isolated valley away from the main road, with access by a narrow route pass bungalows, forests and farms. The road in begins at left after the Butterfly Garden, with a large signboard that clearly indicates the way. After short but windy stretch, the view breaks into a magnificent panorama of vast tea fields stretched across the valley and slopes.
Follow the road right from the signboard until the end; the Sungai Palas Boh Tea Center is perched on top a small hill. Visitors can park their car and then walk up by paved road, or trail through a tea garden that climbs across the slope. Facing the tea center is a garden area planted with lillies, cannas and flowering shrubs; visitors often relax here under the shade of small oak trees. The tea center itself is a spacious complex with fancy bits of modern architecture and design. From the entrance, a cafe sits left with an overhanging platform for viewing scenery, while right leads through through an exhibition gallery, past the Boh'Ria tea shop, next a video room, and finally ending at a small museum and garden area. An old factory for tea production still functions at the back; it's open to visitors just like the main Boh tea estate. Sungai Palas Tea Center is free to visit and open daily from 9am to 4.30pm, but closes on Mondays.
