The stretch of Sungai Perak that flows past Sayong in Kuala Kangsar (KK) is a significant landmark of the royal town. Efforts are underway to make this spot a tourists haven. In the past, water sports and water-related activities such as boating, duck-catching, climbing the slippery poles and decorative boat race were held to mark the Sultan’s birthday.
One highly recommended item for visitors to Kuala Kangsar is watching the vast expanse of Sungai Perak from the Rest House. The spot offers a panoramic view of the slow-flowing river.
A trip to Kuala Kangsar is incomplete without tasting the town’s famous laksa. Make a date with Laksa Pak Ngah.
