One of Peninsular Malaysia’s largest states, Perak used to be a tin-rich region. It extends from the Thai border in the north and runs lengthwise down to meet Selangor in the south. The state has changed its focus to tourism, sprucing up its cities and even small towns to draw in the crowd despite the fact that the tin mines, save for a handful, are all but gone. Cycling enthusiasts benefit from this as it has created more engaging, vibrant environments to ride in.
