About Travel to Ipoh
With a population of around 700,000 permanent residents, Ipoh is Malaysia’s fourth largest city, and by coincidence it is also Malaysia’s fourth most popular tourist destination after Kuala Lumpur, George Town in Penang, and Melaka. Ipoh has emerged as a tourist destination gradually over the last ten or so years. Before that Ipoh was generally thought of an economically depressed city having suffered a severe financial downturn following the crash in tin prices on the world market in the 1970s. Before that time, going back to the last two decades of the Nineteenth Century, Ipoh was a prosperous and vibrant town attracting immigrants from all over the world, particularly the Chinese and the British Empire. Britain invested heavily in the city and this is evident from Ipoh’s magnificent colonial era public buildings, particular the railway station, the former town hall and old high court building, all designed by famous British civil service architect A B Hubback.
Ipoh presents its many historical sites very well to tourists. There is an organised walking route, the Ipoh Heritage Trail, which allows visitors to self guide around 27 of the old town centre’s most interesting places. More recently an impressive collection of street art has also appeared in the old town area. This began in 2014 when a major local business commissioned well known artist Ernest Zacharevic to create a set of wall murals creatively depicting local life and history in a playful and humorous way. More art has been added by others since then and this growing collection of public art has developed into one of Ipoh’s most popular tourist attraction. The increase in visitor numbers has also been matched by a major improvement in the quantity and quality of the city’s accommodation and restaurants. The hotels and restaurants in Ipoh tend to have more character than the larger amenities in Kuala Lumpur and the atmosphere is more relaxed. Ipoh is a pleasant place to stay for few days, although you can see all the area’s major points in interest in a single action packed day if you are short on time.
