Taiping is a small town thats been left behind and its great. Spend two night there and walk around the old town and also the park! Leave all you city madness behind once you're off the North South highway! Hawker food galore at Larut Matang.
Visit Taiping but dont tell too many people about it.

Best food in town, char kuew tiaw, mee udang, abc, sotong kangkung, chicken chop for breakfast in one chinese restaurant in Taiping
One of the cities in Malaysia that I have fallen in love with. Really wish I could actually settle down here.
Taiping? Of course lake and food. Food - super delicious and cheap. Lake - peace and quiet. Best time - Morning , Evening.
Night most activities stopped after 9pm. Taiping is best for outdoors. Raining and night time is very bad timing to travel in Taiping.

I would advise to visit the Taiping Zoo in the morning if you wish to pay a visit to the animals while the night safari is just a glance through the animals in the dark environment where you usually will not see the animals.
