And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at Lost World Of Tambun, make a trip to Art of OLDTOWN, get engrossed in the history at Ho Yan Hor Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Kek Lok Tong Cave Temple and Zen Gardens.

Abode of Grace
The Malaysian state of Perak centers around human history and natural beauty. Dutch and British colonial empires both viewed the area as strategically important because of its tin mines, and the footprint of the two European powers can still be seen in historical sites, architecture, and museums here. The rural inland regions feature untouched areas of forestland, while the coast is made up of remote islands dotted with quant fishing villages and white beaches.
