Kangar

The state capital of Perlis is a relatively small, quiet town that can be a great choice for a restful few days while traveling through Malaysia and perhaps beyond its borders, as this city is also the terminus for all domestic bus lines.

While in Kangar, it’s possible to reach many other cities and towns in Malaysia as the city is very well served by many bus lines. Other than exploring the neighboring towns, make sure to also allow for some time in which to really appreciate the natural landscape of this region. Unique sites such as Thale Ban National Park and Kelam Cave showcase the diverse landscape of peninsular Malaysia while providing plenty of opportunities for fun and relaxation, especially for the adventurists.

As this city is also very close to the Thailand border, exploring some of the Thai beach destinations is a possibility, especially if one takes advantage of the local knowledge of the hotel staff at one’s accommodation. Unlike other smaller cities, hotels in Kangar are actually very well spread out throughout the city, rather than being concentrated right in the city center. This allows for a chance to find the right accommodation in whatever part of town one chooses, and with the transportation services that are readily available, getting around to the sites and attractions will be easy to do.

There is a lot more to see and do around Kangar, and the best way to discover the attractions, sites, and activities that this town has to offer is by exploring the interactive map on this page.
