The First Rubber Tree in Malaysia

Revolutionized The Country's Economy

Be sure to visit the site of the first rubber tree planted in Malaysia that stands to this day.  

The only survivor of the 1st nine planted, it was the forerunner of Malaysia's world famous rubber industry.

It was planted from seeds brought over from London's Kew Gardens in 1877, when Sir Hugh Low was the British Resident in Perak.  

There's a memorial plaque at its base to commemorate its rich place in Malaysia's history.
