One thought on “Royal and Colonial Perak Tour 2012

  1. What an imaginative idea it was to celebrate its silver jubilee in Perak the Silver State!
    The SHS choice of touring the golden triangle of Perak Heritage — Kuala Kangsar the Royal town, Taiping the Heritage town and Ipoh the Capital city with significant national heritage of its own — reflects the maturity of the SHS and its wisdom in getting on board Professor Lai Chee Kien as their architectural guide.
    The SHS group had two days one night in Ipoh. The Perak Heritage Society (PHS) extended their warm welcome to their counterpart with a guided walking tour of colonial Ipoh Old Town with a stop to savour Ipoh White Coffee, and organised a Friendship Dinner at the Old Andersonians’ Club.
    Through the PHS President, Mohd Taib Mohamed, Tourism Perak provided gift bags for each visitor as part of their VPY2012 promotion.
