Perak state is located on the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia. Perak literally means silver in Malay language. Ipoh is the state capital of Perak. Ipoh is famous for aromatic white coffee, Bean Sprout Chicken dish (nga choi kai), Sar Hor Fan (flat rice noodle soup), and Pamelo. Ipoh is nicknamed the Hill City. There are plenty of limestone cliffs and hills around Ipoh. Hence there are some famous caves that are turned into chinese buddhist temples. Ipoh is located in Kinta Valley. Kinta Valley had loads of tin that brought wealth to the state especially Ipoh. A beautiful island of Pulau Pangokr is located in Perak. I had been there once long time ago. It is a small island with relaxing atmosphere. Taiping is a small town located north of Perak. Taiping is famous for Malaysia's first zoo, Taiping Lake, and Maxwell Hill. Kuala Kangsar located north of Ipoh is the Royal City of Perak. Perak has much to offer visitors.
