The first city in Malaysia named in Chinese

The first city in Malaysia named in Chinese - Taiping, has many of Malaysia's firsts, the first railway station, the first railway, the first public library, the first artificially planted lakeside garden, the first government-built bank building. I really like this old-fashioned library, I stayed in it to avoid the rain for an hour or so. Chinese signs can be seen everywhere, and many guild names can't react for a while - Jiaying, Zenglong, Xing'an, Gangzhou... In short, where there are many Fujian and Cantonese immigrants, the food must be delicious and cheap. Taiping has a particularly charming point, there is a lake in the city, which makes people feel like Hangzhou (or Huizhou, which is closer in cultural atmosphere). There are many cities with lakes, but in fact, not all lakes will become a part of city life. Taiping Lake is not only completely unobstructed with the city (there is also a very cheap, night-tourable zoo by the lake), but more importantly, it represents the history of the city: this lake is transformed from a tin mine pit, and tin mines are almost the origin code of all major cities in West Malaysia. The only thing that I can't stand is that there is too much rain here, it is the city with the highest rainfall in Malaysia, and I feel that the biggest rains I have seen in my life are in Taiping (especially considering that I am a typhoon area crowd). The rain was so heavy on the day I left that I couldn't even see the road. The driver who picked us up didn't seem to be nervous at all. He was a little helpless and a little proud: "That's how Taiping is."
