"Dallas, Texas of the East" Paka by Wild_Orchid

Paka Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 32 photos

Next to Kertih, which is the home of Petronas Refinery and its staff, is the town of Paka. The stretch from Kertih to Paka is filled with scenery of oil refineries and power stations-it's quite awesome!!

There is no other place that has this kind of scenery, except perhaps the oil town of Miri, in East Malaysia.

The town of Paka is among the larger in these parts. It has its own post office, a number of large schools, some shops, with a large shopping mall being built in the heart of town. It is also home to this quaint looking police station.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Awesome!
  • In a nutshell:It's all about OIL, baby!
