Your guide to Taiping

All About Taiping

Located in the foothills of the Bintang Range in the Malaysian state of Perak, the city of Taiping is appreciated for its rich history and easy access to nature. In the 19th century, tin deposits were discovered in the hills, attracting prospectors from all over Asia and Europe. Today, the city’s gems come in the form of woodland parks, nature reserves, and tranquil jungle trails. The country’s first public park is located in Taiping on the site of a former mine, and features running tracks and an artificial lake where locals flock to take their lunch.

You could lose a whole weekend touring the city’s historic buildings, a mishmash of colonial-era architecture, Buddhist temples, and neoclassical stunners like the Perak Museum, which is packed with Indigenous ceramics and vintage automobiles. Taiping’s buzzing night markets serve a variety of regional street food, including the locally famous char kuey teow, flat rice noodles with shrimp, sausage, and bean sprouts.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Taiping

Taiping is the wettest city in Malaysia, with tropical weather all year round and heavy rainfall even in the driest month of June. Due to this stable climate, the city’s gardens are perpetually blooming, making every month a pleasant time to visit. February to May are the prime months for local festivities and cultural events. During this time, you can witness the city embellished with colorful decorations as the sky bursts with fireworks for Kongsi Raya, a combined celebration of Chinese New Year and Eid. You can also participate in — or simply observe — aquatic activities like kayaking or fishing at the Langkawi International Water Festival in April.
