About Travel to Ipoh

Ipoh is a large city with around 650,000 residents located about half way between Penang and Kuala Lumpur. Ipoh has a vibrant tourist industry attracting large numbers of visitors. The city is one of West Malaysia’s top visitor destinations alongside Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and George Town.

Ipoh Old Town

Ipoh’s main attraction is its Old Town area. Ipoh Railway Station is located on the western edge of the Old Town making it very easy for rail passengers to visit. In contrast to Ipoh’s main bus station, Terminal Amanjaya, which is located 10 km by road to the north of the Old Town.

Historic Buildings

Ipoh has an interesting history and the architecture in the city’s Old Town area reflects this and a diverse range of cultural influences. During the second half of the 19th Century Ipoh became an important tin mining centre, attracting both large numbers of immigrant workers from China and India and significant investment by the British Empire into the city’s infrastructure.

Colonial Era Buildings

Ipoh’s magnificent railway station is arguably the best example of colonial era architecture in the Perak. Situated very close to the railway station are also two further fantastic examples of European style architecture: Ipoh Town Hall and Ipoh High Court.

All three buildings were designed by a British civil servant, Arthur Benison Hubback, who was also responsible for the design of some of Malaysia’s other well known buildings, such as the Jamek Mosque in Kuala Lumpur.

Vintage Chic

In addition to its grand century old colonial era buildings, Ipoh Old Town has lots of smaller and very well preserved shops, restaurants and homes. Many of the small  businesses in Ipoh offer old fashioned products for sale and have made enormous effort in turning their premises into informal museums to attract customers.

The best examples of this ‘vintage chic’ are to be found on Concubine Lane. Concubine Lane is one of the older streets in Ipoh which is closely associated with the Chinese community. According to local legend wealthy Chinese men paid for their mistresses to live in this part of the city, hence the name.

Street Art

A more recently, and highly popular, addition to the Old Town is its street art. Inspired by the success of the street art installed in 2012 for the Penang Festival, in 2014 local businesses sponsored street artist Ernest Zacharevic to create 8 wall murals. The murals are very good in the way they reflect local culture and history, and the innovative way the images link into features of the surrounding environment.

Following on from Ernest Zacharevic’s work in 2014 other artists have added more murals following similar themes. One of the things most visitors to Ipoh do is to wander the streets of the Old Town looking for the best known of these wall murals.
