The Region's Rich Agricultural Landscape Adds To It's Panoramic Profile

Covering a total area of approximately 128,200 hectares, this area is largely agricultural and rural.  About 80 percent of this area is made up of flat and fertile alluvial soil.  It is well known for its fruit trees particularly the durians.

The mighty Perak River which is the second longest river in Peninsular Malaysia passes through this area.  This fertile river valley is home to more than 70,000 people whose livelihood directly or indirectly depends on the Perak River.

An Agricultural Economy That's Diversifying Rapidly
Being made up of alluvial soil, thus fertile, this part of Perak provides more than its share of agricultural produce  mainly rubber, oil palm, rice, fish and fruits.  Also present in this area is the biggest complex of oil palm and rice plantation undertaken by a governmental body called FELCRA.  It is regarded as a model of efficient and productive agricultural undertaking.  

Due to its long historical background, this place and the surrounding area is fast developing as a tourist spot.  A few industries have also made their way into
this largely agricultural area.
