Please feel free to ask questions about Taiping and I will try my best to answer. In 52 years Taiping has changed but not too much to make it unrecognisable. Did you live in Taiping Town or the outskirts like Kamunting, Pokok Assam etc ?

hi and welcome to Taiping Talk! I must apologise for the very late response but I was away for some time on a couple of birding excursions in places where there is not internet.Just got back and read your posts! A couple of years ago there were some pretty bad landslides up Bukit Larut and they were having a tough time repairing the roads. I wonder whether they are passable now, even to jeeps. Let me check and get back to you.The local taxis in Taiping charge very cheap prices and you can find plenty of them at the Casual Market. From your IP address I can see you are in Texas. I watch KSAT News almost everyday to keep up with US news and the truckload of people who died in a container is very sad news. So is UVALDE.

We plan to visit Taiping my former hometown next year. Have been living abroad for over 52 years in US. Being away for a long time. Would appreciate any tips or guidance from a would be friend in Taiping when we visit. Hopefully able to travel & safe to travel. Covid -19 is on the decrease.
Thank you.

Beautiful rattan shop. Intention to pop in next year. How do I go about to book a jeep ride up Bukit Larut?
Also 2 nights stay in Bukit Larut. Phone number to book 2 rooms. No relatives in T. now. (Visiting the town next year feels more like a outsider! . Loss touch with friends over the years! )
Someone also from Taiping but now resides in the Southern Hemisphere told me could get Uber . Another friend from Penang told me get Grab . Equivalent to Uber! Driving is more a reflux action. Not use to driving on left side of the road. As over 50 plus years has being driving on the right side of the road.

I was invited to the tea party hosted by HRH Sultan Azlan Shah. I did not have a Rolls Royce but they said I could go in a TD2000 which incidentally attracted a lot of attention Smile
