More than 80% of the population in Perlis is Malay. This is followed by Chinese, Indian and other ethnic groups. Due to the state’s close proximity to Thailand, Perlis’ culture has strong Thai influence. Among the traditional music and dance performances reflecting such an influence include tarian canggung and tarian terinai. Many local dishes are also rich with Thai flavours.
