About Travel to Ipoh

Ipoh is a fairly large city, with around 700,000 permanent residents, and an interesting history. From the middle of the 19th Century until the 1970s Ipoh was a very prosperous city. The city’s wealth was based on the mining of tin ore in the surrounding mountains. During that period the commercial mining of tin ore attracted large numbers of Indian and Chinese migrants to Ipoh as well as a high level of investment from the British colonial government in public buildings and the local infrastructure. Ipoh’s Old Town area has lots of interesting building dating back to the late 19th Century and early 20th Century to visit. The local government has established a walking trail around 27 of these buildings called the Ipoh Heritage Trail.
