The Charcoal Factory

The pile of mangrove wood that are used for creating the charcoal. The workers peel off the skin of the top layer before burn it in the kiln.
The owner Mr. Chuah explain to us the steps and process of making the charcoal. Mainly all the charcoal will be export to Japan, while only some 10% of the charcoal is sold to the locals.
This is one of the kiln that they use to dry up the charcoal. The owner has 6 of these kilns and one kilns is expected to produce about RM10k charcoals. If you are visiting Taiping, don't forget to drop by this Charcoal factory. :)
