Taiping

Taiping


Taiping is a town located in northern Perak, Malaysia. It is the second largest town in Perak after Ipoh, the state capital. Taiping took over Kuala Kangsar's role as the state capital from 1876 to 1937, but was then replaced by Ipoh. Its development slowed down after that, but in recent years the town has begun developing rapidly again.

Taiping also receives some limelight for being the wettest town in Peninsula Malaysia. The average annual rainfall is about 4,000mm in Taiping while the peninsula's average is 2,000mm 2,500mm. Its unusual rainfall has also led to a fertile collection of flora and century-old rain trees in the Taiping Lake Garden.
