Kuala Lipis or Lipis was a gold-mining centre before the British arrived in 1887. In fact there are still some gold mines operating there but on a smaller scale. It was the British administrative centre and also the capital state of Pahang from June 1898. During this time, grand colonial buildings, such as the imposing District Offices and the Clifford School, and the Pahang Club were built. The hilltop house of the British Resident is now a hotel and museum.

Though it’s not renowned for its abundant visitor attractions, it is a good destination from which to make excursions to other places of interest in the region.The town grew and prospered with the coming of the railway in 1924. However, in August 1955, the state capital was shifted to Kuantan, and Kuala Lipis fell into a decline.

The Kenong Rimba Park is one of the most interesting attractions in the area but closer to home are a number of fascinating old colonial structures that provide good stopping off points on self-guided tours of the town.
