Perak

Its neighbours include Kedah and the Thai Yala Province to the north; Penang to the northwest; Kelantan and Pahang to the east; Selangor to the south, and the Straits of Malacca to the west. The state’s capital is Ipoh and royal capital is Kuala Kangsar.

In the early 1900s, Perak was famous for its tin-mining industry, notably in Lembah Kinta. However, the tin mines have since been exhausted and other industries such as tourism, manufacturing and agriculture have become major income contributors to the state. Some of the popular tourist sites in this state include Kellie’s Castle, Pangkor Island and several waterfalls and jungle trekking spots.

Residential properties in this state are terraced houses, semi-detached houses, bungalows, flat, apartments and condominiums.
