As a tourist destination, Ipoh as three things going for it which make it popular with foreign and domestic visitors. Firstly, the British colonial government, along with Chinese and Indian immigrants to the city, constructed some great buildings and introduced their own cultures to the city. There is plenty to see in Ipoh as a consequence. Secondly, Ipoh has a thriving street art scene which has flourished since well known artist Ernest Zacharevic created 8 murals on the walls around the Old Town. More great art has been created since and this attracts a lot of visitors to the city. Thirdly, Ipoh has very good and distinctive food. Ipoh is well known for its kai see hor fun (a noodle dish), chicken with bean sprouts, curry noddles, and nasi ‘ganja’ which is version of nasi kandar using deep fried chicken served along side a fish curry. The food in itself is the reason why a significant proportion of Malaysian visitors choose to come to Ipoh.
