Nevertheless, it is still possible to find a lot of affordable bus ticket from KL to Yong Peng.

Of course, the most famous attraction of Yong Peng is its authentic Fuzhou style cuisine. The HockChewchowmein is one of the most sought-after local delicacies – the handmade chowmein are initially boiled, and then stir-fried in an amazing, flavourful sauce for maximum effect. Another great delicacy is the Hockchewfishball, which is basically traditional fishballs with a pork filling. These dishes, along with other local items like the fermented rice wine noodles and the rice wine chicken, are all unique to the area surrounding Yong Peng.
With the town having strong roots in Chinese culture, you will also find a lot of amazing adapted Chinese food items like the Laksa, the Lu Mien (dark noodles), and the Duck noodles.
