    taiping's most decent hotel (according to my sis)

    by

    we decided to stay here coz my sis, who had been living in taiping for the past year, says that this is the most decent hotel in town.. for rm88 per room per nite, it was pretty cheap for a hotel.. but we were really disappointed as the place is not very well-kept.. carpets were so dirty that our feet felt sticky after walking barefooted in the room!

    Unique Quality: the best thing about this place is it's close proximity to all the food places in town.. walking distance to most places..

    Directions: right in the heart of taiping town..

Travel Tips for Taiping

Slow Down

by gnh

When you really want to take it slow in life, think of Taiping.

A great place to retire. Many Malaysians from the larger cities like Kuala Lumpur ( 3 hr away ) and Penang ( 2 hr away ) have bought houses in Taiping and enjoying their lives in retirement

You want to try that ? WELCOME !. The Lake Gardens are unforgettable. The Zoo is also within its grounds.

There is Bukit Larut ( Maxwell Hill ) just nearby.

The Museum is close too. Numerous schools and churches, temples and mosques takes care of most of life's necessities. Don't forget the many eateries, economical shopping and plain simple lazing ..........

Hey what more could you ask for ?

Traditional Malay style mansion turned restaurant

by SLLiew

In most towns, you will see old colonial Chinese businessmen mansions turned into open air restaurants with food stalls.

Here in Taiping, this Malay style mansion caught my eye. At night, it is turned into an open air restaurant selling Malay food stalls. During day, it is quiet.

Taiping Ceylonese Association

by SLLiew

While the Chinese were major group of immigrants to Taiping for the tin mining, many Indians were recruited by the British to plant the rubber trees, construct railway lines, roads and buildings as well as serving as clerical administrative staff.

Many may think that that all from the Indian subcontinent are homogenous group - they are not. There are Tamils, Gujeratics, Punjabis, Bengalis and Ceylonese.

Ceylonese (Sri Lanka) are quite a close knit group and form associations throughout Malaya (Peninsular Malaysia). There are Ceylonese of Christians, Buddhist and Hindu as well as Muslim background.

Bridges of Taiping Lake

by SLLiew

One of my favorite memories of Taiping Lake as a kid is to run over the many bridges in Taiping Lake.

There is a zig-zag bridge with a pavillion in the middle. You can see over the side, the water lilies, the dragon flies and little fishes and water skippers.

Then there is also an bright red wooden bridge and another bridge where boats can rowed underneath.

A street of gold shops

by aberacadabra

The interior of Peninsular Malaysia is rich with mineral resources, and when the Chinese migrated to Malaya, they tended to congregate in the interior, rather than the coastal areas. Only the later dialects/migrants who came later ie the Hokkiens and the Hainanese would populate the coastal areas, as the rich interior were already taken by the Cantonese who came much earlier.
In Taiping, one will find a street where goldsmiths operate side by side. Goldsmithing in Malaya is parochially a Cantonese industry. That is why one will find most goldsmiths with Cantonese sounding names like Poh Kong, Poh Yik Thye etc.
