About Travel to Ipoh
Ipoh is a large city with over 650,000 permanent residents, and one of Malaysia’s most popular destinations for tourists after Melaka, Kuala Lumpur and George Town in Penang. The most striking feature of Ipoh is the architecture in the Old Town area to the east of the magnificent railway station. At the beginning of the 20th Century Ipoh was an economically important part of the British Empire and received major investment in the form of a grand European style railway station, town hall and court house. Ipoh’s vibrant tin mining also attracted a large immigrant community at the end of the 19th Century and early 20th Century and the Old Town features a variety of Chinese style residential and commercial building, as well as an impressive mosque. Ipoh’s municipal authorities has set up a walking route, known as the Ipoh Heritage Trail, which has sign posts guiding visitors around 27 of the most important historical buildings in the Old Town.
Ipoh itself is surrounded by limestone hills, which is where the tin ore and prosperity of the city came from. These hills contain many caves which are now also major tourist attractions. In some of the caves Chinese monks have established impressive temples, all of which are open to to visitors. One of the caves, Gua Tempurung, is very large and features stalactites and stalagmites. Another of these caves, Gua Tambun, has caves paintings which are over 3,000 years old.
