Long gone: In the good old days, Thais would visit Wang Kelian in droves as they shopped for goods and travelled in and out of the border town with ease.

KANGAR: A once-bustling town with rows of famous shops, fashioned out of corrugated sheets and bursting with Malaysian goods for Thais to buy, Wang Kelian is now like a ghost town.

Piles of rubbish, likely left there since 2015, are still in the corners.
