    Traditional Hawker centre (Malaysian style)

    6 am was too early to get hold of any bus to Cameron Highlands. While the streets were slowly waking up, the market nearby the main road where long distance coaches would alight passengers was already bustling with activities. A hot traditional Malayan coffee and a plate of Wanton Noodles is just what I need to start the day. Prices are very reasonable. RM$1 for black coffee and $3.50 for a plate of Wanton noodles. Coming from Singapore, sipping coffee and observing the surrounding brought back nostalgic memories of the olden days of Singapore (the 70s), where similar markets and hawker stalls were common.

    Tapah Town

    Main junction of Tapah town

    The town of Tapah is not really a big town, with just few rows of shophouses facing the trunk road that links Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur.

    As the administrative centre for the Batang Padang region, the goverment administrative complex is located a liltle bit away from the main road, mostly housed in old colonial buildings. The Batang Padang river passes through the town, with its muddy water washing down the silts from the highlands. About 10 kilometers from the town centre is the Tapah Road railway station.

    Nevertheless, the town still has that old world charm and laid back feel - good for urban dwellers for a change.
