Where to stay in Arau

About Arau

The royal capital of Perlis, Arau boasts a fascinating blend of colonial and Moorish architecture, particularly the red-roofed Royal Palace. Along with fine-dining restaurants and cosy cafes, you can discover a bustling shopping centre, historical landmarks and nearby tranquil rivers.

Things to do

If you’re interested in Malaysia’s royal history, head to the Arau Royal Palace, also called the “Istana Arau”. The official home of the Raja of Perlis, Arau Royal Palace showcases unique Moorish-British architecture, as well as manicured gardens and vibrant lighting at night. Afterwards, cross the road to see the golden-domed Masjid Negeri Arau mosque.

Are you looking for some retail therapy? Head to C Mart Arau, a popular shopping centre that features Malaysian clothing brands and excellent cafes. Once you’ve finished shopping, grab a sweet treat at Garden Cake House or indulge your taste buds at Blackwood Coffee and Chocolate Arau. For something a bit more substantial, check out the nearby Yasmeen Arau restaurant, which specialises in chicken and rice.

Those seeking a bit of tranquillity should stroll along either the Sungai Besar waterway south of the township or Perlis River to the north. If nature is on your agenda, drive about 25 minutes to the Snake and Reptile Farm, where you can see fascinating displays on snakes and lizards found throughout Malaysia, including preserved exhibits.

Learn more about the local culture by driving 15 minutes to Kota Kayang Museum, where you can explore local history through archaeological exhibits and traditional architecture. It’s a short drive from the seaside town of Kuala Perlis, where you can dine on fresh seafood while admiring views of the Malacca Strait.

Getting around

Arau is about 55 minutes’ drive from AlorSetar, which has a domestic airport just outside of town. The best way to get around Arau and to nearby attractions is by using your own vehicle.
