Tapah Things to Do

  • The market with Hawker stalls

    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...

  • 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...

Tapah Transportation

  • To Tapah and beyond

    I could not find a direct coach to bring me right to the doorsteps of Cameron Highlands from Larkin Bus Station in Johor Bahru. Instead, the nearest destination where a connecting bus to Cameron Highlands could be made is Tapah. It was an overnight ride starting at 11pm. The SVIP coach ticket cost RM$55. By 6am the next morning, I reached Tapah....

  • Tapah bus station

    Tapah bus station is located a bit further from the town's main road - it is about 100 meter from the main junction of the town where KFC is located. Take note that not all express buses from KL will stop at this bus station - most of them will just drop the passengers at the bus stop on the main road that links Ipoh and KL. However, the Regal Bus....

Tapah Local Customs

  • Hindu temple - Thandayuthapani

    Thandayuthapani is a Hindu temple some one kilometers less in distance away from Blue church, about as big but obviously more colorful, not just blue, beautiful indeed.

  • Part of the church

    Part of the church is a photo taken from one part of the church, is an arch for the statue of the person in white I guessed, it has the ancient feel to me, something old, but not quite sure its purposes as a non-believer, anyway I just build tips for VT as contribution for tourists worldwide to see, that's all I know.

  • Blue church

    Blue church is not in red color, is in blue, that's why I called it Blue church, you can name it green church if you like but now I see it was in blue. I saw a date on the tower, something 1908 built by XXX, a somebody of that time, great work though, worth a visit. Location is on main street of Tapah, just drive slowly, sure you can see it.

  • South bound R & R

    I usually pass by this R&R in the morning. I would buy the newpaper of the day. Someone in the car can read it. This R&R is growing bigger and bigger, just like the number of registered vehicles that keep on increasing.

  • North bound R & R

    To long journey travellers along the north-south highway, taking a rest at Tapah R&R is a normal exercise. I prefer to have a quick stop here as at this R&R, you can relax and not bored, sometimes, you can meet beautiful things such as a sport car and etc. My first trip to Cameron Highlands was in 1980's. It was a school trip that we organised...

  • Market

    This one was taken from the Pasar Awam Tapah (Market). Opposite saw so many peoples and vendors, road was congested while cars and bikes parked at anywhere along it, a good photo opportunity kan?
