Welcome to Perlis
Perlis is Malaysia’s smallest state. It doesn’t tend to register on most travellers’ radars except as a transit point to Thailand or Langkawi (via Kuala Perlis). Even Malays tend to regard it as essentially a rice-producing pocket along the Thai border. Though it isn’t an area that’s particularly heavy on sites of interest to tourists, it can be a kick just to hang out with the locals and improve your Bahasa Malaysia (because English definitely isn’t widely spoken). Otherwise, small but beautiful Taman Negeri Perlis is worth exploring.
