About Travel to Ipoh
With other 650,000 permanent residents Ipoh is, in comparison to other Malaysian cities, a large city. Ipoh grew from a very small settlement on the banks of the Kinta River into a large town during the latter half of the 19th Century. The driver of this quick growth was the tin mining industry. The hills around Ipoh are rich in tin ore, which at the time was a valuable commodity, and the city became the provincial centre of the trade in tin ore and a place where many of the miners and mine owners lived.
During its most prosperous period, Ipoh was an important part of the British Empire. The British colonial government invested significant resources in public buildings and services in Ipoh. The city’s railway station, old town hall and high court are some of the best examples of colonial architecure in the Malay peninsula and popular tourist attractions in their own right. As well British influence, the city was also heavily influenced and migrant works from China and India. The narrow grid of streets in the Old Town area feature numerous heritage buildings built using traditional Chinese architectural designs, in particular on Concubine Lane.
Ipoh has a well developed tourist infrastructure focussed on its Old Town area which has lots of boutique hotels, bars and restaurants. It’s also a great place to eat affordable food from small inexpensive restaurants and food stalls. Ipoh is a culinary centre with its own distinctive cuisine including well known local dishes such as chicken with bean sprouts, and nasi ‘ganja’, which is a twist on the traditional nasi kandar using deep fried chicken legs. At the other end of the scale is the innvoative Plan B, which is a modern restaurant in an airy heritage building offerring a dining experience similar to what you might expect from restaurants in fashionable parts of London or New York.
