About travel to Ipoh
Travel by train from Arau to Ipoh is not only quicker, it is also more convenient. Ipoh’s long distance bus station, Terminal Amanjaya, is 10 km to the north of Ipoh city centre whereas Ipoh Railway Station is easy walking walking distance from Ipoh’s popular Old Town area. Ipoh’s historic Old Town is the main attraction in the city, which has been attracting increasing numbers of visitors in recent years. Ipoh is a city with an interesting history and this is reflected in the Old Town’s architecture. In the second half of the 19th Century Ipoh became an important tin mining centre, making the city and many of its inhabitants prosperous. Opportunities in the tin mining industry attracted immigrants from China and India in large numbers, and they built temples and houses in the city as well as bringing their cuisine and culture. The success of the tin mining industry also attracted investment from the British colonial administration which constructed some fantastic public building such as the very grand Ipoh Railway Station and Ipoh Town Hall, which are excellent examples of British colonial architecture.
Ipoh has great facilities for visitors. The city has some good hotels and a wide range of excellent restaurants. The local authorities have put a lot of effort into making the city accessible to tourists, including the establishment of the Ipoh Heritage Trail, which is a sign posted walking route past 27 of the city’s most interesting buildings. Another recent addition to the city is its noteworthy street art. In 2014 local coffee company OLDTOWN commissioned 8 wall murals from accomplished artist Ernest Zacharevic. These murals focus on the history of Ipoh and its local culture. Since 2014 more and more wall murals have appeared around Ipoh and the city’s street art has become a tourist attraction in its own right.
