Kuala Sepetang Town

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Kuala Sepetang is a coastal town located in Perak, Malaysia. The town was formerly known as Port Weld after a former British Governor, Frederick Weld. It is a thriving fishing village, and the main jumping-off point to the river mouth community of Kuala Sangga, which is a Chinese fishing community at the river mouth which specializes in fish breeding in cages.

The Port Weld railway station was located at the centre of town. The whole railway line from here to Taiping, which was the first railway line in the Peninsular, is now dismantled. Only the ticketing booth and the Port Weld railway signboard remain. The ticketing booth is converted into a Chinese coffee shop, and the shop owner has been maintaining the railway signboard.

Kuala Sepetang offers excellent seafoods and it has a famous restaurant situated on the upper floor of a shop lot overlooking the river.

Kuala Sepetang is also well known for its mangrove swamp reserve park which is open to the public daily. It has a boardwalk built over the swamp for tourists, and chalets in which tourists can rent to stay the night on the riverfront.
