About Travel to Ipoh

Ipoh is a fantastic destination for a short break. Ipoh’s Old Town area, which is a short distance from Ipoh Railway Station, has lots of places of interest to visit and a wide range range of good hotels and restaurants for visitors.

Ipoh’s History

Ipoh has a rich history. From around 1880 until the 1970s Ipoh was major tin mining centre which attracted both immigration and investment. The British colonial government invested heavily in creating grand civic buildings in Ipoh, including the city’s magnificent railway station, town hall, and court house. Successful immigrant groups, particularly Chinese immigrants and to a lesser extent immigrants from India, built temples, shops and houses in the city centre transforming what had been a sleepy small settlement on the Kinta River into a thriving metropolis. Immigration also diversified the local culture and the lasting impact of this is evident in not only the city’s architecture, but also its cuisine. Ipoh is one of Malaysia’s culinary centres with large numbers of domestic tourists coming to Ipoh specifically for the food.

Following the collapse of tin prices in the 1970s and 1980s Ipoh went into decline as the city lost its single major source of income and employment. From around 2000 this decline has been slowly reversed with the expansion of its tourist industry. Ipoh has developed its tourist infrastructure and promoted what it has on offer, and moreover added enhancements to its historical attractions in the form of 8 wall mural by street artist Ernest Zacharevic.
