The coastal town of Kuala Sepetang is located near Taiping in Perak State of Malaysia. This quaint fishing village is also popularly known as Port Weld and is worth visiting for its history, culture and food. It is also the gateway to Kuala Sangga, a chinese settlement island village with no modern facilities. The village is also popular for its seafood.
Mangroves Swamp Forest Park is one of the prime destinations in Kuala Sepetang. Another major highlight of the town is Charcoal Kilns in the Charcoal Factory where charcoal is still made in a traditional way. An exciting activity in Kuala Sepetang is Mangrove river boat ride offering spectacular view of luminous fireflies and feed eagles. The boat ride costs RM 28 and also includes a small trip to a floating fish farm. Kampung Seberang Chinese Village can be visited after crossing the Port Weld Bridge, which offers a perfect place for fishing and enjoy the eventide. The chinese settlement of Kuala Sangga is accessible by a 30-minute boat ride which is ideal for experiencing the archaic life. The lucky ones might spot pink river dolphins on this boat ride!
