Known as the wettest town in the Malaysian peninsular, Taiping placed third in the “Best of Cities” category during the 2019 Sustainable Top 100 Destination Awards ceremony at the International Tourismus-Börse (ITB) travel trade show held in Berlin, Germany on March 6 (Wednesday). The “Best of Cities” award went to cities that displayed leadership in urban sustainability and avoided disruptive over-tourism.

Taiping Municipal Council President Datuk Abd Rahim Md Ariff received the award, while Perak MB Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu and State Tourism Committee Chairman Tan Kar Hing were also present during the ceremony.
