Explore the royal town of Kuala Kangsar, Perak and the cultural heritages she conceals in this half day exploration.

Kuala Kangsar is the cultural cradle of Perak, and has been the home to Perak’s royal family since the 18th century. Overshadowed by the neighbouring Ipoh and Taiping, the sleepy town hides a treasure trove of hidden cultural heritages that define Malaysia's culture today.

Join us as we venture through the heritage town, and meet craftsmen that have kept their traditions alive such as the keris maker, golden thread weavers, iron craftsmen, tengkolok headdress maker, labu sayong potters (you can even try moulding one), and kekabu cotton makers. We'll also visit some of the landmarks around town, and have delicious local food.

    It was very educational. Perhaps a more realistic end time should be provided to factor in traffic conditions enroute to KL Sentral. 9pm rather than 7pm. Thus departure from Kuala Jangsar can be at 5.30pm rather than 3.30pm. This allows Siti to provide us with a more comprehensive and interactive local experience. Enjoyed the visits to the 2 local artists the most.
