About Travel to Ipoh

Ipoh is a large city with a population of over 700,000 permanent residents and the state capital of Perak. Ipoh is also one of peninsula Malaysia’s more popular tourist destinations.

Ipoh Old Town

The older part of the city to the west of Ipoh Railway Station, and 11 km to the south of Terminal Amanjaya Ipoh, is Ipoh’s most popular tourist attraction.

Ipoh Old Town has a wide range of historic buildings from the time when Ipoh was part of the British Empire and a prosperous centre of Perak’s tin mining industry. Tin mining became big business in Ipoh toward the end of the 19th Century attracting large immigrant communities from mainly China and India, as well as significant investment from the British colonial government in public buildings and infrastructure.

In among the more famous buildings are many smaller locally run businesses, particularly restaurants, which have been operating for several decades or more serving traditional local cuisine and beverages. Many of these establishments retain very old features and attract visitors looking for ‘vintage’ food experiences.

The best way to see the full range of buildings in Ipoh Old Town is to follow the Ipoh Heritage Walk, which is a signposted walking route that takes visitors past 27 historic buildings and locations.

Another popular feature of Ipoh Old Town is its wall murals. The most famous of these are the series 8 pictures created in 2014 by Ernest Zacharevic. Ernest Zacharevic became fairly well known in Malaysia following a similar project in 2012 in Penang, and the works in Ipoh were very successful in reflecting themes from the local history and culture.

Caves in Ipoh

The limestone hills around Ipoh are full of caves and there are many you can visit. Some of the caves have been transformed into temples, the most famous of which are Perak Tong Cave Temple, Sam Poh Tong Temple and Ling Sen Tong Temple.

Other caves have been left in the condition they were discovered and feature other points of interest, particularly Gua Tambun, which features ancient cave paintings, and Gua Tempurung for its stalactites and stalagmites.
