Where to Stay in Perak

Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Perak

One of Malaysia’s most historically rich states, Perak is home to a diverse landscape with sights ranging from the Matang Mangrove Forest Reserve to Bukit Larut (the oldest hill station in Malaysia). With a populace largely comprised of entrepreneurial Chinese inhabitants, Peninsular Malaysia’s second-largest state hasn’t been fully developed for tourism but that’s part of its charm. Home to Pangkor Island, a healthy number of Chinese temples and limestone hills housing secluded caves, there’s so much to see here. Besides the sightseeing spots, be sure to pay a visit to the state capital, Ipoh where the street food is some of the best in the country.

Facilities are limited to two meeting rooms and a restaurant but with the Belum-Temenggor Rainforest at its backdrop, there’s so much to see and do.
