The police station, government offices, hospital, schools, library, post office, shops, banks, eateries, inns, chalets, bus station and taxi stand are all present. The town is noted for its intricate network of jungle tracks leading to waterfalls, mountains, scenic spots or aboriginal villages. These tracks generally intersect with each other to form a “loop” around the city.
Brinchang (1,450 metres (4,760 ft)) is the Highlands' second biggest town. The majority of its visitors are from Singapore or Malaysia. It is close to the central market, orchards, nurseries, museum and a golf course.
