As one of the smallest and quietest state in Malaysia, there is actually nothing much to be said about Perlis. Perlis was actually under the Thai Monarchy up till the time the Sultan of Kedah took over. It was then briefly presented to the Siamase rule during the war before it was handed over to the British and then finally, Perlis became a part of Malaysia on Independence Day. Relatively a still quiet town up to this very day, Perlis still maintains its old-world charm with very minimal development.
Perlis being the small, quiet state that it is, there is not much activities to be done around here. But here are exciting ones:
By Flight - Unfortunately, there are no direct flight services to Perlis. Visitors would have to fly into Alor Setar (Sultan Abdul Halim Airport) then take a bus or a cab to Kangar which would take about 45 minutes depending on the traffic.
By Train - From Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth, visitors can get to Perlis via the KTM’s Senandung Langkawi which will stop either in Arau or at the Padang Besar Thai-Malaysian Border.
By Bus - There are two different bus service providers that rides from KL straight to Kangar daily, Express National and Express PPMP. Whereas from Butterworth, only Ebban Express commutes daily to Perlis.
