KUALA SEPETANG

 

Once the busiest port in the region, Port Weld was the main exporting point for processed tin ore. Opened in 1877 for cargo ships, Port Weld is now known as Kuala Sepetang. Rustic looking, it has long ceased from its role as a major port and is now used mainly by local fishing boats. In the past Port Weld was an important port for import export activities between Taiping and Penang. Apart from Teluk Intan, Port Weld was also used as an exit point from the Kinta and Upper Perak districts. At that time, the items traded were opium, preserved vegetables, tobacco, and tin ore.

 
 

 

Port Weld's importance to Taiping's growth increased when a railroad was built Works on the railroad started in the end of 1884 and its construction was managed by the Ceylon Pioneer Corps. On February. the railroad was officially opened and plied the Taiping and Port Weld route. transporting passengers and goods. Today, the Port Weld signboard in four languages Is the only vestige of the railway. Next to the signboard where a coffee shop now stands was a booth for passengers to purchase tickets The railway itself, according to locals had long been dismantled to salvage its timber and steel tracks. Today, the town of Kuala Sepetang is small, comprising mainly of a Chinese fishing community and life here moves at a considerably slower pace Being a drop-off point for fishermen unloading their catch. Kuala Sepetang now has excellent eateries offering fresh Seafood.
