During my recent trip to Perlis, I visited a farm dedicated to growing over 2,000 nipah palm trees which is located at Kampung Tanah Timbul of Kuala Sanglang. Known as Ladang Nipah Kipli, the plantation also offers guests a chance to dine in the vicinity under the shade of the rustling palms.

Nipah palm is scientifically called the Nypa Frutican and it is the only type of palm adaptable to the mangroves. These trees have an average life expectancy of up to 50 years, and they are loved by the locals especially for the palm sap which is a natural drink used to manufacture different types of products such as sugar, vinegar, fermented beverage or alcohol. The sap from the nipah palm can also be consumed as it is as the refreshing drink is an amazing quencher - perfect for the hot tropical climate.
