 Kuala Kangsar Road

Kuala Kangsar Road or Jalan Kuala Kangsar, is a street in George Town that runs into Prangin Road (Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong) from Campbell Street. In the morning, the other side of the street (near Campbell Street) is heavily occupied by morning market traders. The street was named after Kuala Kangsar, the old Royal town of Perak state, and was once a focal area of Malay theater and performance in the early days.
