Perlis; the hidden gems of Northern-most of Malaya

Not much is said about Perlis as it is probably the quietest state in Malaysia in addition to being the smallest. also known by its popular honorific title Perlis Indera Kayangan is the smallest state in Malaysia located at the northern part of the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and has the Satun and Songkhla Provinces of Thailand on its northern border.

 

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.
