This instaworthy bridge is just one more reason why you should visit Kuala Kangsar

Kuala Kangsar is a tiny hidden gem often overlooked by travellers, even locals. Most won’t even give Kuala Kangsar the time of day upon passing its (relatively uninviting) intersection on the PLUS highway.

It’s a shame though, as the royal town of Perak hides a treasure trove of  regal palaces, historical sites and architectural splendour. One such highlight is the Victoria Bridge.

Built in 1897, Victoria Bridge is one of the oldest railway bridges in Malaysia. Cutting across the Perak river at Karai, it was used for transportation of tin ore back in the old days, until its closure in 2002.

Today, the bridge is increasingly popular amongst those in the know, especially avid photographers, thanks to its nostalgic and old world vibes. Those familiar with local film mights even recognize it as one of the film location for 2014’s The Journey.

If you’re feeling hungry, the cafe next to the bridge sells freshly-made pastries and Milo Ais Kepal, where you can sit back and admire the bridge from afar.

So, the next time you approach the Kuala Kangsar intersection on the highway, do consider stopping by. Tag a friend you would want to bring along on this road trip!
