Officially known as Perlis Indera Kayangan, Perlis is found towards the north of the western coast of the Malaysian Peninsula. The smallest state in Malaysia, Perlis houses the hottest place on the Malaysian land; Chuping. Retaining the old world charm, Perlis is home to some of the largest sugarcane plantations in Malaysia, quaint kampongs and unspoilt natural beauty. Popularly known as the capital city of Perlis, Kangar is outshone by Arau, the royal capital of Perlis. Perlis is the only Malaysian region to have a Raja as its ruler. It is a great spot for outdoor rock climbing, which is best experienced at the Bukit Keteri limestone hills. Some of the best highlights of the state are its snake farm, the Kelam Caves, Kota Kayang Museum, Perlis State Park, Kuala Perlis (an efficient entrance to Langkawi) and the Hutan Lipur Bukit Air.
