Ipoh, the capital city of Perak, is a former tin mining town where history and heritage coalesce with modern Malaysian culture. Often overshadowed by its more famous neighbors, Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Ipoh is a gem waiting to be uncovered by the discerning traveler. The city’s colonial past is evident in its historic buildings, such as the majestic Ipoh Railway Station and the Town Hall. Ipoh is also known as a culinary hotspot, particularly famous for its creamy chicken and prawn curry noodle dishes, silky bean sprout chicken, and flaky egg tarts.

The surrounding limestone hills, which house magnificent cave temples, add to the dramatic landscape, making Ipoh a blend of natural and urban attractions with a laid-back charm that’s hard to resist.
