Taiping Things to Do: 76 reviews and 121 photos


A popular spot for locals and tourists is the Burmese Pools. It used to be a long hike to this river with many spots for swimming and picnicking. Now there is a tarred road which you drive straight to near the bridge over the river.

There is parking, place to shower, buy drinks and swimming floats near the bridge.

There are many stories as to how this place got its name. One of them was that druing British administration, there was a Burmese army camp which used to bath at this spot.
