Perlis

Everything you Need to Know about Perlis

Not much is said about Perlis as it is probably the quietest state in Malaysia in addition to being the smallest.

Perlis was a part of Kedah under the Thai Monarchy until the Kedah Sultan took control of it. It briefly reverted to Siamese rule during the war before being handed over to the British and then finally becoming part of Malaysia on Independence Day.

Today, Perlis still retains much of the old-world charm. Little development goes on here and life is peaceful and quiet. Because of its small size, the sights found in Perlis can be covered in a short time, but are still worth visiting if only to experience the rustic living of its calm and mild people.
