Just stop by on the way to Maxwell Hill (Bukit Larut). The war cemetery is very well maintained and looked after.

The War Cemtery is where WWII fallen British and other members of her majesty's armed services have been laid to rest. The plots are well organized, the grass well-kept and overall its a tranquil spot.

War cemetery can be reached on foot or car. Do not expect any buses to go up there. Taxi's can be quite pricy. If you like to walk, walk by the lake garden until up the cemetery.

If you are a war memorial buff it'd be great. As a cemetery or just place to visit much much better is the old graveyard adjoining the church on the walk out of taiping if you ere going to Tesco Mall

Sometimes we need to see first hand the result of the ultimate sacrifice others have made for our benefit. Visiting this cemetery will only take a few minutes, but will have you reflecting for a long while. These young men, mostly in their 20's, died doing their duty.
