Three reasons why you should visit Taiping. The top reason is its beautiful and peaceful Lake Gardens with the mountain range as its backdrop. There's no where else in the whole of Malaysia which can equal or surpass the Lake Gardens.
Thirty years ago I stepped foot here, and it's still remarkably well-maintained.
Century year old trees won't fail to attract your attention as well.
That's why Taiping has been consistently voted (by me!) as the best town in Malaysia.
