“nothing exciting”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We went here as part of a tour and fortunately only spent about 25 minutes here, not a lot to do or see, there's some bee hives dotted about with a lot of bees coming and going and there's a couple of gift shops selling the usual tacky souvenirs you see everywhere else in the Cameron Highlands though you can buy pure honey made from the bees and a few other honey related things. Our guide for some reason wouldn't let us shop in the area selling the honey etc. and instead led us to another area selling tacky tourist merchandise upstairs.
apparently they have Malaysia's largest indoor maze too however it didn't seem to be open.
Good as part of a tour but otherwise can be easily missed as there are a lot more things to do in the Cameron Highlands.

“Meh....”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

It's a tour- tourist pit stop... They sell everything.. from vegetable, honey, strawberry and strawberry inspired souvenirs (pillows, shirt, umbrella, slippers, key chains)
Not helpful at all if you plan to learn more about bees...
Another bee place that I found more informative is Cameron Tringkap Bee Farm. The owner is super informative and give us a 15 minutes crash course on different types of honey. So.. if you wan to get good quality honey without falling in the tourist trap, go Cameron Tringkap Bee Farm. They even conduct short courses for those interest in honey business. :)

“Information at its Bare Minimum”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

You'd be expected to know everything about bees and its honey of variable types before arriving at a pitstop here as part and parcel of most travel packages. The bee farm is perhaps one of the largest in the area and it's main building is made up of several storeys with souvenirs outlets, fresh fruit and vegetables produce, desserts and beverages and of course fresh bottled honey right out of the farm nearby. Take your own risk when walking in and about the bee farm. Just need to exercise a little bit of common sense precaution and you'll be alright. Several giant bee models can be seen from the main building itself and if you get closer, you might just have the opportunity to snap a few pictures there. Problem is too many kids may get into that same place at once as it's perhaps the only place where they would appreciate better rather than looking into the bee house. There won't be any guide to take you around the place so it won't be much of an informative area or an educational tool. Maybe if you throw a few questions at the hosts right after your trip, you might just get a few useful answers?

I'll come again for the honey, but then again, there are a lot of other places selling them too... just look out for the best deals!

“A pit stop filled with Made in China products”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

No one can miss the gigantic bee outside their shop so we decided to drop by expecting to buy some fresh honey.
This place is huge - all 4 storeys - with the bees at the lowest level.

They have a lot of things here besides honey - we managed to get some fresh strawberries for a good price since its the low season now.

I think this place caters mainly for commercial tourist since nobody really offered to explain the different kinds of honey to us. Before leaving one guy just stuffed a "promotion" for RM 100 for a set at me and expected me to buy it.

I will not be returning to this place.

“Nice place to stop”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Overall, it was a nice pit stop. They are selling their pure honey bee with a great service and affordable price. In fact, we can have a nice trip to the bee farm with no fees.
