Kuala Pilah District

Specialty Museums · Waterfalls · Caves
The Kuala Pilah District is a town, a district and a parliamentary constituency in central Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.TownscapeThe eponymous town is an old valley town with many of the pre-war Chinese shop houses still fronting the main streets surrounded by traditional style Malay village houses built on stilts nestled among extensive rice fields. It has a sizable Chinese community that has existed since the mining days during the early British rule. This community today engages in trading and providing essential services such as workshops, hairdressing and coffee shops.The town is especially busy on weekends due to the flood of folks returning from Kuala Lumpur, usually to visit their parents or to tend to their family plots, where around the area is mostly Malays that migrated to Kuala Lumpur in search of better prospects and 'the bright lights'. The town is quite empty at night as most of the shops close as early as 7.00 pm daily. But early mornings are busy as there were workers and residents staying nearby going to work at government offices such as hospitals, district offices and schools.There are not many food stalls around, most are limited to the junction between Kuala Pilah and Bahau. The town used to have a movie theatre, but it was closed due to the introduction of video and internet cafes that sprouted during the 1990s. Those cafes are still going strong today.The town is where one can also find the old Kuala Pilah Rest House, which was built by the government during the British occupation. In the early years, rest houses were the only available hotels and where everyone from businessmen to travellers stayed. It still serves this purpose today, albeit in a diminished capacity due to the availability of alternative accommodations.DemographicsMalays make up the majority of the population at 65%, followed by the Chinese at 26% and Indian at 9%.
