"Parit Buntar-Bandar Baharu, a tale of two towns?" Parit Buntar by andrewyong

Parit Buntar Travel Guide: 60 reviews and 224 photos

Parit Buntar, a small but thriving town, lies in the north of the State of Perak, and is siruated just a stone's throw away from the town of Bandar Baharu in the State of Kedah. "How come?", you might say. That is because the two towns are separated by the River Kerian.

It's amazing (and surprising) to see (somewhat) that while Parit Buntar is full of buzz from the clatter of local vendors selling cottage industry wares, Bandar Naharu, just across a small bridge, is dead quiet. It just shows the emphasis and investments put into each town, though geographically located in the same area, by two different state governments.
