Tambun, PerakTambun, Perak (12 August, 2017)

Tambun (GPS: 4.61372, 101.14382; Traditional Chinese: 打捫, Simplified Chinese: 打扪) is a small town in Kinta District that has absorbed into the metropolitan area of greater Ipoh. It is located on the northeast part of the city.

Tambun was traditionally famous for being the centre of pomelo (Citrus maxima) growing. The pomelo trees are grown by Hakka farmers who brought it in from southern China when they settled in Tambun. The ferrous soil of the area is ideal for growing pomelos.

Tambun is also famous for its hot springs, which are now part of the water theme park, the Lost World of Tambun.
