Ipoh Old Town
Ipoh Old Town is located in an area to the east of Ipoh Railway Station stretching to the banks of the Kinta River. The Old Town has narrow streets and buildings dating to the period from the late 19th Century to the commencement of World War II when Ipoh was part of the British Empire and an important commercial centre whose residents became wealthy from local tin mines. The tin mining industry attracted lots of immigrants to Ipoh particularly from China and India, and of course from Britain both as administrators of the imperial regime and private businessmen looking to profit from the valuable trade in tin.
Over the past 10 or so years Ipoh Old Town has become a popular tourist destination. Old buildings have been restored, a heritage trail with signposts has been established, innovative businesses have started up in the area, and some great street art has been added all over the Old Town area. The main tourist attraction in the Old Town is Concubine Lane, which is a narrow street with old Chinese style houses where, according to local folklore, wealthy Chinese residents kept their mistresses. Concubine Lane no longer has any ‘ladies of easy virtue’ but it does have lots of boutique shops, some with interesting displays of appliances and other objects that people used to have in their houses in Ipoh in olden times. Beyond Concubine Lane, which is a ‘tourist trap’, the old town has some really interesting old fashioned coffee houses and restaurants, as well as some very antiquated shops such as the charmingly old fashioned ‘Raham Typewriter Service’ where you can get a letter typed for you on a antique typewriter. The Old Town is a great place to wander around for a few hours with lots of hidden gems waiting to be discovered in its narrow grid of streets.
