kamunting prison

I won’t be free because there is something going on in Penang (and I hope to go CM stalking hehehe).

So, what can you do in Kamunting besides going to the Kamunting Prison?


1. Taiping Zoo


Taiping Zoo is one of the better maintained zoo in Malaysia.

2. Taiping Lake

Beautiful place with cascading trees that touch the ground.

5. Seafood in Kuala Sepetang

I love the seafood and most of all the hut over the river.

6. Laut Matang Swampland

Great place for a walk in the swamplands.

7. Taiping foods

Heh Chien and sio bak are famous in Taiping.

See? So many reasons for you guys to take a drive to Taiping and enjoy the trip, other than visiting Kamunting.
