We offer various tour packages to explore the " Land of Grace " - PERAK .

 

Perak is one of the 13 states of Malaysia. It is the second largest state in Peninsular Malaysia bordering Kedah and Yala Province of Thailand to the north, Penang to the northwest, Kelantan and Pahang to the east, Selangor southward and to the west by the Strait of Malacca.

Perak means silver in Malay. The name comes most probably from the silvery colour of tin. In the 1890s, Perak, with the richest alluvial deposits of tin in the world was one of the jewels in the crown of the British Empire. However, some say the name comes from the "glimmer of fish in the water" that sparkled like silver. The Arab honorific of the State is Darul Ridzuan, the Land of Grace.

霹靂州(又称吡叻马来语Perak),是馬來西亞馬來半島的11個州當中第2大的一個,面积约21000平方公里,北部连接馬來西亞东北部的馬、邊境以及吉打州、西北部接壤槟城、东边有吉兰丹州彭亨州、南边雪兰莪州马六甲海峡则处于霹雳州西方。

Perak馬來語的意是,大概來自霹靂州以前主要產品的銀色顏色。此外也传说霹雳州地名其实源自河里鱼儿在阳光下闪烁似银而来。
