Taiping is located at the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia in the state of Perak between Ipoh and Penang Island along the North-South Expressway that skirts the country’s western hemisphere. The only routes of access are by roads and railway tracks; there are no commercial airports (only a small air strip suitable for turboprop planes). Flights to the nearest airports are at Ipoh and Penang, which connect domestic routes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Once in town, there are taxis but an electric bus service may be available in future to provide tourists a convenient way to explore major attractions along the heritage trail, managed by the local municipal council.

How to Go?

By Road

Taiping town can be reached by using the North-South Expressway that connects major cities along the western coastline including Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Ipoh, Georgetown and Alor Setar. Located 70km north of Ipoh and 90km south of Penang, the highway incurs tol charges at the Taiping exit. From Kuala Lumpur, it is a distance of 280km away – about three to four hours by car. Alternatively, visitors can also use trunks roads that pass through townships skirting the coast or highway that are free of tol charges with the aid of a map. Major bus stations at Kuala Lumpur (including KL Sentral), Ipoh and Penang also provide coach rides that arrive or pass through Taiping. From northern bus terminals, buses arrive at Kamunting about 6km away from the main town.

By Train

Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM), the national railway, operates the Electric Train Service (ETS) that connects the western coastline from Gemas to Padang Besar at the Thai-Malaysian border. Operating in three phases, visitors taking this high-speed train from KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur will hop on the main line to Ipoh, then transit to the Padang Besar ETS route that makes a stop at Taiping Train Station. Conversely, visitors from northern destinations such as Butterworth (mainland section of Penang), Alor Setar and Kuala Kangsar will take the same line from Padang Besar to reach Taiping.

It stretches for 50km from Kuala Gula to Pantai Remis along Perak’s coastline, with five fishing villages and several more parks situated between. About 80 percent of it is used for coal production under sustainable harvest policies, while the remainder is completely protected for biodiversity preservation.

The mangrove landscape is dominated by Bakau trees that fuel the charcoal industry, but the entire reserve is also important as a breeding site for coastal birds and commercial fish. Entry to the park begins along the old trunk road (route 74) from Taiping to Kuala Sepetang, as it nears the estuary. An extensive series of well-maintained boardwalks take visitors through the mangroves, allowing them to see the different types of trees, ferns and shrubs that grow in swamps; locals use it as a jogging track.

During the Japanese Invasion, many soldiers from British and Gurkha regiments perished during a short but intense battle, culminating in a hasty retreat to Singapore.

When the war was over, a British major and his team were tasked with collecting the various dead buried across the country in forests and villages. With the help of Aborigines (Orang Asli), about 900 soldiers were located and exhumed from their burial plots to be interred here. Among the dead were soldiers of British, Australian, Scottish, Chinese, Malay and Gurkha origins. The graveyard is only one of two such memorial graves in Malaysia, the other being in Labuan (Borneo).

In morning and evening, the park is naturally a favourite haunt of locals for recreation and relaxation. Designed by Colonel Robert Walker during the colonial era, the land came as a donation from businessman Chung Thye Pin, with further refinement by town planner Charles Compton Reade.

Receiving much praise from visiting British officials and travellers for its architectural beauty, Lake Garden remains a delight of Taiping town till today. Rain trees (Angsana variety) that were planted here over a century ago still perch dramatically around the park confines, raining down yellow flowers during strong gusts of wind that carpet the greenery in gold.
