About in Ipoh
Ipoh, with a city centre population of over 650,000 permanent residents, is Malaysia’s fourth largest town and also one of its most popular tourist destinations. Ipoh has an interesting history and it is this heritage that is the basis of it emergence over the last decade as a tourist destination. In the 1880s Ipoh was transformed from small village into a thriving economic centre after large deposits if tin were discovered in the surrounding countryside. At the time tin was a major commodity and this attracted large numbers of workers, entrepreneurs and investment, particularly by the British colonial government, to the area. The British authorities built impressive public buildings like Ipoh Railway Station and Ipoh Town Hall, and other settlers, particularly those from China, built there own settlements in the city. When the demand for tin diminished, culminating in the collapse of tin prices in the 1970s, Ipoh went into a spiral of economic decline which has only recently been reversed by the increase in tourism.
There is a lot for a visitors to do and see in Ipoh’s city centre Old Town area, and it is a popular place for day trippers and for domestic tourists to take short breaks. The British have for the most part departed from the city since the 1950s but the Chinese communities still exist. The local cuisine is great in Ipoh, and a good range of upmarket and boutique hotels have sprung up in Ipoh to cater for the tourists. To see all the historic buildings in Ipoh Old Town in one go we recommend following the Ipoh Heritage Trail, which takes about half a day to complete if you explore all the sights along the way. The trail also takes visitors to the part of town where you find Ipoh’s newest tourist attraction which is a set of 8 imaginative wall murals created in 2012 by artist Ernest Zacharevic, who became famous for the similar works he completed in 2012 for the George Town Festival in Penang.
