Pekan Selasa

I visited Pekan Selasa in Karai several days ago. Since the bridge in Karai was still being repaired, I went to Seberang Karai and parked my car there.

What happened was that the bridge collapsed last raya. Pray that the bridge can be completed as soon as possible. I can’t imagine the hardships the locals there have to go through every time they want to go to Kuala Kangsar or even to the town of Karai.

There’s an alternative road, but it’s small, as it’s a village road where big vehicles aren’t supposed to use it. Hence why I’ve decided to park in Seberang Karai.

Where is Seberang Karai? As the name suggests, Seberang Karai is a village located opposite Karai across the Perak River. You can see Karai from Seberang Karai, and vice versa.

The last time I was in Karai and Seberang Karai was seven to eight years ago. They certainly look different now, and in a good way. They are really turning these places into tourist attractions.

So, having parked my car, I walked across the Victoria Bridge to Karai and then to Pekan Selasa. It wasn’t that far and I wasn’t alone. As you can see, I took some pictures while I was in Seberang Karai and while I was walking on the bridge.

Karai is not only rich in history and home to many historical landmarks, but it is also known for its weekly Tuesday market, which is why it is called Pekan Selasa.

The market is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, offering a wide range of goods such as fresh produce, clothing, and handicrafts and some vintage collectible items.

And there’s Rumah Warisan Budaya, located right in the heart of Karai, very near to both Pekan Selasa and the Victoria Bridge.

Pictured above is Seberang Karai and all its glories. Having visited Pekan Selasa in Karai, my school friend, Fizuan, brought me to see a maker of fish nets in the village. A picture above that picture is of my friend trying his new fish nets that he had ordered from this maker.

Thank you for reading. Here’s the Google Maps link to Karai. If you’re planning to visit Pekan Selasa, it’s highly recommended to go to the market as early as 8 AM to soak up the lively atmosphere.
