About Travel to Ipoh

Ipoh is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia, particular for Asian holiday makers on short breaks.

Old Town

Ipoh’s main tourist draw is its historic Old Town area. In the last half of the 19th Century and the first half of the 20th Century Ipoh was an important outpost of the British Empire and British colonial governments made significant investments in the local infrastructure including the construction of several large European style buildings of considerable architectural merit including Ipoh Railway Station, Ipoh Town Hall and Ipoh High Court.

Chinese Community

In addition to British architecture, Ipoh’s Old Town area has lots of buildings created by the town’s large Chinese and Indian immigrant communities, the most notable of which are on and around the exotically named Concubine Lane. Also of interest are the vintage coffee shops and traditional small restaurants. Many of these shops and restaurants are still open for business selling much the same products, made in the same way, as they did 50 or 100 years ago.

Ipoh is surrounded by limestone karst hills featuring lots of caves. These hills were the source of Ipoh’s past wealth as they contain large deposits of tin ore. The caves themselves also have a long history if being inhabited by human. 3,000 year old cave paintings have been discovered at Gua Tambun (Tumbun Cave) which is open to visitors.

More recently, temples have also been built in or near some of these caves by Chinese Buddhist monks. The most popular of these cave temples with visitors are Ling Sen Tong, Sam Poh Tong, and Nam Thean Tong, which are close to each making it easy to visit all 3 temples in a day.
