Last weekend, I had visited to Taiping with my family. Taiping is a developing town which offers an abundance of nature activities courtesy of its landscape - centuries-old rain forests, cooling waterfalls and dramatic mountains that include Maxwell Hill - the oldest colonial hill station in Malaysia, now known as 'Bukit Larut'. Lake garden is also one of Taiping's iconic attractions, the largest park of its kind in the country. There are many historical buildings and heritage landmarks from the colonial era can be observed in the town as the British once used Taiping as the state administrative center.
Below are the attractive places that we had visited:
