The tiniest state in Malaysia, Perlis is situated on Peninsular Malaysia’s northern border with Thailand. Perlis is a tranquil state with friendly inhabitants known because of its rocky outcrops and excellent seafood. Here are the 10 Best Places To Visit in Perlis During Year End School Holiday, despite not being as well-known as the other states in Malaysia.
1. Padang Besar
Since 1960, Padang Besar has been a favourite shopping destination for both Malaysians and Thais. The majority of people come by on weekends to do their shopping, sometimes thousands of visitors all at once. Despite not being a high-end, glamorous market, Padang Besar is not without charm. It combines the cultures of two nearby nations and has a wide range of locally produced goods. The variety of goods includes clothing, jewellery, cuisine, handicrafts, textiles, and ironware. The Complex Aked Niaga and Gapura Square are frequented by the majority of Malaysians, but Jalan Besar is more popular with Thai shoppers.
