About Travel to Ipoh

Ipoh is one of West Malaysia’s most popular tourist destinations.

Visiting Ipoh

This city, the fourth largest in Malaysia with a population of over 650,000 permanent residents, has an interesting history which has been successfully promoted as a tourist attraction over the course of the last decade, and has attracted considerable private sector investment in hotels and restaurants that make the city accessible to tourists. To make the most of Ipoh we recommend a two day visit.

You need two days to see all the attractions because firstly, there are things to see both in the city centre as well as outside the confines of the city in the surrounding hills, and secondly, because the train station has no left luggage facility which means that travellers with luggage can’t simply alight from a train on route to somewhere else to spend a few hours seeing the historic city centre.

History of Ipoh

Ipoh grew into a substantial city from 1880s onward with the discovery of large deposits of tin ore in the surrounding hills. From the late 19th Century through to the collapse of tin prices on the world markets in the 1980s Ipoh was a prosperous city which attracted large number of immigrant workers to settle in the city, as well as significant investment by the British colonial government in public buildings and infrastructure.

Most prominent amongst the immigrants group were settlers from China who built large parts of the Old Town area of Ipoh, funded by their success in tin-mining. Immigrants from India also came to the city, building a notable mosque and leaving their mark most on the cuisine of Ipoh.

Ipoh’s colonial era buildings, particularly its railway station, town hall and high court building, are magnificent and have been well maintained despite the rejection of colonial rule and British influence. The cave temples built by Chinese Buddhist monks in the surrounding hills are also noteworthy, as are the pre-historic cave paintings at Gua Tambun, also not far from Ipoh city centre.
