Kuala Perlis -- a small rural town of 12,000

I visited my auntie in Kuala Perlis , which is 500 km north of Kuala Lumpur.

The journey by Express bus from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Perlis takes 7 hours.

Kuala Perlis is a small, typical fishing town , and it's very popular for seafood ( crabs, squid, various types of grilled fish ) and the gateway to Langkawi Island.

Interesting pics as always Skyprince, the cuttlefish looks tasty!

I think that I might have passed near to this town, is it on the train route between Butterworth and Padang Besar?

Thanks Jonesy Kuala Perlis is 5-10 km detour from both the rail track and Trunk roads linking Padang Besar- Alor Setar- Butterworth . The town is right next to sea while the roads and railway are inland.
