A Tasty Adventure in Taiping, Malaysia, Taiping, Malaysia (B)

Taiping is a small town located in Perak, Malaysia that is about an hour drive from Penang. It’s not typically on the radar of international tourists because of its laid back nature, but if you love food, it’s worth heading to Taiping for a few days of culinary adventure.

Taiping has retained its old world charm with pre-war shophouses, food markets, and small businesses that have been in the same families for generations. It also has beautiful nature reserves and a zoo for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. There’s no airport in Taiping so you’ll have to fly into Penang or Ipoh, and either take a taxi or rent a car for the one-hour journey. It has a train station that connects to other cities in Malaysia like Kuala Lumpur (a three-hour journey) and it’s an easy, stress-free and affordable way to get there. Do note that because it’s such a small town, Grab and Uber don’t operate in the area. However, there are taxis you can book from the town center if you are headed to somewhere further than walking distance. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
