The Old and New Town

Gua Musang began life as a railway town and has modernized over the years. The town was originally quite remote and unconnected to the rest of the country. It wasn’t until the rail line was built in the 1980s that it became connected to the rest of Malaysia. The city has grown, and today, Pekan Lama is still the town center.
