It is not easy to pick the top Perak attractions because there is so much to see and do here. Perak is one of the largest states in Peninsular Malaysia with an area of over 21,000 sq. km. stretching from just north of Selangor all the way to the Thai border.
Its scenery includes the hills of the Titiwangsa range along its Eastern edge, the unusual limestone karst towers outside Ipoh, some spectacular caves, the huge Temenggor Lake, excellent beaches and the popular resort island of Pangkor.
The historic towns of Ipoh (Perak’s capital), Taiping and Batu Gajah contain some fine heritage buildings and places of interest while the Royal town of Kuala Kangsar has some interesting palaces, museums and mosques to admire. Perak was one of Malaysia’s main tin mining areas and the country’s only surviving tin dredge is a piece of industrial heritage that can still be visited.
Add in the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan, the former colonial hill station of Maxwell Hill, Kellie’s Castle and for families, The Lost World of Tambun, and you can see that Perak has much to offer.
