For someone who has never been to Tapah before, I would bring him to the Kuala Woh Recreational Forest. This is a place where people can soak in the rushing shallow warm water.
Fondest memory: A trip to Tapah is like taking a time machine back to the sixties where most modern day cities in Asia originated from. Chances are, if not for the famous Cameron Highlands in Malaysia, the town of Tapah would be virtually unknown to most people outside (or even within) Malaysia. (Tapah is the traditional gateway to Cameron Highlands). Yet, in the vicinity of this relatively quiet, remote town lay many hidden gems of nature waiting to be discovered. (e.g. majestic mountains, waterfalls, hot-springs, recreational parks, jungle trails etc)
The thing I miss most about Tapah is the food - especially KFC, which is a rare find in such a rustic place. Other local must-try delicacies include Thosai at Sunddara Villas restoran, chinese pau, etc.
The local people consists mainly of Chinese and Malays. Food is cheap, people are courteous, air is fresh - it's the perfect getaway for people who want it good and cheap.
