Officially known as Perlis Indera Kayangan, Perlis is found towards the north of the western coast of the Malaysian Peninsula. The smallest state in Malaysia, Perlis houses the hottest place on the Malaysian land; Chuping. Retaining the old world charm, Perlis is home to some of the largest sugarcane plantations in Malaysia, quaint kampongs and unspoilt natural beauty.
Popularly known as the capital city of Perlis, Kangar is outshone by Arau, the royal capital of Perlis. Perlis is the only Malaysian region to have a Raja as its ruler. It is a great spot for outdoor rock climbing, which is best experienced at the Bukit Keteri limestone hills. Some of the best highlights of the state are its snake farm, the Kelam Caves, Kota Kayang Museum, Perlis State Park, Kuala Perlis (an efficient entrance to Langkawi) and the Hutan Lipur Bukit Air.
This Islamic Malay state of Perlis offers some of the most delicious seafood, such as the famous Puyu Fish, which is cooked into the state’s signature gastronomy. Perlis relishes traditional Malaysian cuisine as well such as Nasi Kandar and Roti Canal as well.
Closely connected to the seas is the Pesta Air Kuala Perlis, the Perlis Water Festival which is observed among the top festivities of the state such as the Perlis East Wind Festival. Perlis also offers the best shopping facilities for all south-styled fashion, with Kangar being the main attraction.
Although a small state, Perlis offers the biggest of memories!
