some tourist sights in Perlis

During our caving expedition to Perlis, we did have some time off from caving to do tourist things.

I have been to Perlis many times for caving and know the area quite well, but it has been a few years since my last visit. I was surprised at the number of changes, such as new roads, more tourist facilities etc. There's a new market at the Wang Kelian border.

We were so close to the Thai border at Wang Kelian that I used to pop across to the Thai side for meals, and go to the duty free shop. I was amused to see lots of Thais every day buying large floor mats from the Malaysian side and taking them across to Thailand - these mats are made in China!

  1. Good idea - save enviroment and money if do DIY but how.

  2. What a joke. The firemen are paid for holiday there.

  3. Interesting sight - I mean the lady - LOL

  4. These are found everywhere in Thailand, so it is interesting that Msia has just started copying - at least near the Thai border.
