I was unable to locate any tourism statistics specific for Taiping. If they exist, perhaps they were not published in English.
A good article on the development of tourism in Malaysia in general was posted on June 10, 2007, in the site Tourism Malaysia Travel.
Even the Tourism chapter of the Wikipedia entry for Taiping does not quote any sort of statistics relating to tourism.
You are on your own with this one!
