Signs & Facades: Perlis

01 August 2016

Perlis is north-most tip of the peninsula, sharing its border with Thailand in the north and Kedah in the south. Culturally and even demographically, it is a mix of both its neighbours and this becomes quite apparent if you take a closer look at their people, cuisine, and even their signboards. Below is a collection of business signboards photographed around Kuala Perlis, Kangar, Arau and Padang Besar.
