Kampar

Perak, Malaysia

Kampar is a town about 15km north of Tapah, a popular stopover for visitors before accessing the Simpang Pulai route to Cameron Highland. Kampar's main claim to fame is its specialty product - traditional chicken biscuits called 'Kai Chai Peng', but some drop by for a popular dish at lunch - 'Loh Shi Fan', which is a grub-like Chinese noodle stir-fried in claypot. The Batu Berangkai Waterfall is another popular attraction in the vicinity, fed by crystal clear waters cascading down the slopes of Kampar Hill, a magnificent mountain range that overlooks town. Established since 1887, the town was once a tin mining stronghold in the Kinta Valley, before its relatively obscurity today.
