What an awesome day trip to Kuala Perlis, a town/fishing village located far North along the coast line of Peninsular Malaysia! After our competition at UniMap Perlis, we washed up and headed to our destination with a mission in mind – to hunt for Fresh, Tasty and Affordable Seafood! We alighted at the seafood eatery area at 130pm and our journey began!

The journey from Arau (town where we stayed) to Kuala Perlis was between 15-20mins and taxi fare was RM 25-30 (fixed rate) for each trip. This was shared among 3 pax and after all conversion of currency, it was rather affordable.

Famished from our competition, however, we arrived at the wrong hour as the seafood stalls only operates after 43opm! To kill time and satisfy our hunger, we explored the town starting from the Kuala Perlis Jetty.

After a 15mins walk, we arrived at Restoran WL Siang which sold noodles, small choice of mixed rice and vegetables and Bak Kut Teh. We ordered some noodles and a pot of Mixed Bak Kut Teh. The soup was INSANELY good! Very similar to Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh in Simpang Bedok. Find out about Restoran WL Siang HERE)

After lunch and exploring the town (we walked around for 2 hours), we headed for our seafood feast which only starts after 430pm, and 530pm for Hai Thien PLT.

Hai Thien PLT used to be on stilts which was connected to a mini jetty that stretched out to the sea. The current premise relatively new, has ample parking spaces and private function rooms.

The staffs were also very helpful and sincere with their service. Although, she knew that we were Singaporeans, however, she didn’t push for their premium dishes at us.

Awesome place for seafood! The food was great and the price reasonable. Currently, Hai Thien PLT isn’t ‘halal’ certified, however, there were groups of Muslim families dinning there.
