Discover the neighborhoods of Taiping


The small town of Taiping is located in Malaysia’s Perak state, and has been a home for Chinese settlers since the 19th century. The best way to reach Taiping is via Malaysian Railway, arriving at Taiping Railway Station, which is located in the area of Kamunting.

The Chinese influence in this region is very much evident in the architecture, cuisine, and certainly the population, making it a great place in which to really get to see the diversity of culture that is evident in Malaysia.

As the town is quite small, it’s not necessary to rent a car or have a hired tour service to be able to explore the town. Most of the attractions can be reached on foot or short taxi rides, including the gorgeous reclaimed area of Taiping Lake Gardens. This beautiful natural oasis was created out of an abandoned area of land, and is now a favorite walking and picnic area for locals and tourists alike.

A longer car trip is necessary to reach the outlying areas of the town, which is where attractions such as mangrove reserve at Matang and Maxwell Hill, a peaceful hill area that adventure trekkers and hikers will certainly wish to visit.
