The Taiping Tourist Association (TTA)
The TTA was formed in 1985 by locals keen to put Taiping on the tourist map. It is a membership-based organization, run by elected members on a voluntary, non-profit basis. The main role of the TTA is to promote tourism in the area, with its recent project being a one-stop tourist center in the heart of Taiping town, known as the ·Taiping Visitor and Information Center·.

It would seem that if the TVIC ever had its own website, it does not any longer. At any rate, I was unable to locate one. Nothing of quality, at least. There seems to be some old shabby representation in what is likely the free area of Angelfire that I prefer not to link to — Angelfire tends to overkill with forced advertising by employing popups and similar tactics.
