Taman Rekreasi Tasik Melati, Perlis, Malaysia

Tourism is a significant revenue and employment generator for the state. Kangar, besides its quiet old world charm, is in close proximity to a number of tourist attractions such as a snake farm, herbal garden, the beautiful Al-Hussein mosque sited by the Straits of Malacca and various ecotourism sites.

Many foodie visitors make a stop at the nearby Kota Kayang state museum before moving on to the seafood attractions of Kuala Perlis, the nearby fishing settlement. Inside the uniquely sited museum nestled among limestone caves and primeval jungle is evidence of settlement from more than 5,000 years in which people descended from hill tribes in today’s Vietnam hunted and farmed the Kedah and Perlis rice plains. The museum also contains relics of ancient Buddhist sculptures, and golden items and gems discovered in the Kayang area.

Nature buffs can also enjoy the Perlis State Park situated on the limestone hills alongside the Thai border. The park is home to a diverse range of caves, the only semi-deciduous forest in Malaysia, and according to the Perlis Forestry Department, 616 species of flora have been documented within the park, as well as 68 species of mammals, including 5 species of primates, 4 cat species and 32 species of bats; 211 species of birds, including 6 species of hornbill; and 35 species of reptiles.
