About Ipoh

Ipoh is an increasingly popular tourist destination. Once a busy mining town, Ipoh’s economy suffered badly during the 1980s when tin prices collapsed and the town’s main industry ceased functioning in a very space of time. Since then Ipoh’s fortunes have revived largely due to tourism, particularly to the City’s Old Town area.

Old Buildings

Ipoh has lots of interesting old buildings. Some, such as the town’s impressive train station and its city hall, were built by the British colonial government. Some, such as the Chinese style shop houses of Concubine Lane, were built by the Chinese immigrants who came to work, and in some instances become very rich, in the tin mining. Other buildings, such as the fantastic Masjid India Mosque, were built by immigrant workers from India.

Heritage Trail

Ipoh has been cleaned up and the local authorities have done some good work in making the city accessible to tourists, in particular establishing the Ipoh Heritage Trail which is a sign posted walk around the Old Town with stops on route at the city’s most important historical buildings.

Private Businesses

The private sector has also contributed a lot to making Ipoh a great place to visit. Ipoh now has modern innovative hotels and restaurants, such as Plan B. The White Town Coffee Company also commissioned a series of wall mural from prominent street artist Ernest Zacharevic in 2014 which have become a major tourist attraction in their own right.
