This is a railway town centered at the three-way intersection of rail connections to Butterworth on the west, Padang Besar at the Thai border to the north and Kuala Lumpur to the south. It is a small-time overland trading hub infamously known as a "smugglers" town, where contraband trade in liquor and duty-free merchandise change hands. Besides the wild-west undertones, its aged railway station gives a feeling of timelessness. Dilapidated shop houses and plantation architecture make up the market center.
