I had not realized that there might be such a variety of Taipings — note Wikipedia. So just where should we be directing our attention — Malaysia? If so, one might try the official website of Tourism Malaysia — scroll to the very bottom of the page for Travel Agents. Finding one based in Taiping will not be especially easy, I do not think. You can filter a search by choosing the state you are interested in — Taiping is in Perak — but that is still going to require you to be scrolling through many pages of results. But at least they do list some. It might be worth the effort, however, for one would expect that the official tourism website of Malaysia would not knowingly list any notoriously shady agents.
There is an agency named Taiping Heritage Travel (M) Sdn Bhd that — oddly enough — is not located in Taiping, nor even Perak State where Taiping is located.
Similarly, website BuddySurvey4u.com has a page of several travel agencies supposedly located in Perak — at least one is in Taiping (Dakna Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd | Dakna Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd).
Another I found named is Kamatravel & Tours Sdn Bhd.
Personally, I think I would scour those agencies listed in the official Malaysia tourism website. And let’s leave it at that.
