The town is itself is not that spectacular, the beauty lies outside of it on the lush green hills. After sunset, there’s not much to do besides keeping yourself warm (it does get quite cool) or visiting some of the restaurants (there are few good ones actually - a popular dish to have is Steam Boat). From Tanah Ratah you get bus tickets to Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur, even Mini-bus rides to Kuala Besut (jetty to Perhentian Islands) and Taman Negara.
