It has a population of about 8,000, mostly those involved in the hospitality, food and service sectors.
The town is the administrative centre for Majlis Daerah Cameron Highlands (or the District Council). That means there are a number of local government offices, police station, general hospital and clinics as well as post office. The Post Office is located on the main road in Tanah Rata.

The heart of the beguiling little town centres around Jalan Besar, the main street.

Local and express bus services begin and terminate here in Tanah Rata. The bus terminal is housed in a pseudo English-inspired design with brick masonry and clock tower. From Tanah Ratah you get bus tickets to Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur, even Mini-bus rides to Kuala Besut (jetty to Perhentian Islands) and Taman Negara. The town council named it the Freesia Terminal. It was a badly designed building that was meant to double as a car parking lot. The ramps were too narrow and anyone who attempt to get in would get a nice long scratch on their car.
