the weather in ipoh is very humid and hot. always bring unbrella and a bottle of water with you. or just drop any restaurant for their iced tea or coffee, soya bean and tau fu fa in old town, caramel custard in tin jun restaurant are some of the famous attraction in ipoh old town
Ipoh is an old town with colonial era buildings still intact. Although the city now boasts of new shopping malls, travellers still roam the old section of the city taking in the Indian enclave and pre-war buildings selling mainly wholesale dried marine products.
Here too you will find the old style kopitiam (coffeeshop) with their locally brewed white coffee, which incidently made Ipoh famous.
I stayed in Ipoh for 3 days, had spent 1 days in the Lost world of Tambun, kids really enjoy it. 2nd day visited a few cave including 清心岭，霹雳洞，极乐洞。we stop by Tambun to buy Limau Bali, 362 烧饼。Then we went to Ipoh old town to drink their famous white coffea.
IPOH, I will always remember this place! all good, the Old Town really reflect the past of a certain town, food were amazing! People we've met were great and the places like Gua Tempurung is exciting! I would definitely go back Ipoh one of these days!
I spent my first day in Ipoh Old Town, just explore the kopitiam there. All of the hawker stalls are managed by the owner themselves, not by foreign workers, which is why the food is so up to my expectation.
Caramel custard from Tin Jun retaurant, even iced tea or coffee has different taste than the one we get in KL. Just order from any restaurant, wont let you down. Tau fu fa and soya bean drinks is a must in this hot weather. long queue though no matter which hour of the day. be prepared to sweat for it.
Ipoh is an old tin mining town with few newly established shopping centres. There are many limestone caves for tourists to visit around Ipoh, the most notable ones are Gua Tempurung and Kek Lok Cave.
There are many local food stalls and Dim Sum restaurants in Ipoh old town area. There are also many shops in Ipoh old town selling all kinds of biscuits for tourists to bring back home. The most popular attraction in Ipoh is The Lost World of Tambun Hot Spring & Theme Park.
A convenient pit stop for leisure travellers heading north towards Penang. Great local food and very beautiful limestone hills surrounding the city if one chooses to pay some attention.
Love the dim sum at restaurant Foh San, the salted chicken, the biscuits at Yee Hup. Enjoyed the activities and art & craft shops at the heritage trail in old town.
We love the white coffee and cakes at Sun Yuen Loong and all the superb hawker food at Tong Sui Kai. Easy access, no jam/traffic congestion.
If you just go one or two days, go to old town first since the shops will be closed earlier than new town, take a coffee break, get around the train station, etc.
then enjoy the dinner in new town is better.
It is a quaint little town with lots of old buildings and beautiful old architectures. It is a very relaxing town, with no issue of traffic and parking at all.
Food is amazing, and it is not ovrly packed with tourist!
The city is clean and well maintained. Food is excellent. People are friendly and helpful. Feel relaxed and do not feel the city rush here during the weekend.
Ipoh eventually was a tin mining area due to that its has been develop into a small city. Tin mine will no longer this day the local are more to agriculture.
One of the best place is in cameron highland which located 2 hours away from Ipoh. you may catch a bus or rent a car to stop by.Suggest to have bring more clothe especially in the evening cause the weather can be very cold at night. The surrounding were very piece full. Ipoh City indeed is just another commercial area and you may still find some old building at the surrounding. nothing much activities except some local good food and one of the famous is the chicken sprout bean rice at the shop name Wong Ah Wah restaurant. the local river fish was a very famous dish in the local restaurant price could be more expansive make sure you check with the restaurant first about the price before place any orders.
Ipoh is home to lots and lots of delicious food! From signature roasted duck, Ipoh's famous white coffee to dessert street, you just have to try them all.
One of the must try food is the Tauge Ayam (bean sprouts). Ipoh's bean sprouts are thicker & juicier compared to those else where.
Locals believe this is due to the mineral rich water from the nearby limestine hills. I'd say the main attractions there are the Buddist temples built inside the limestone hills e.g Gua Kek Look Tong, Sam Poh Tong & Perak Tong temples. Choice of shopping here is a bit lacking compared to KL or JB. Ipoh Parade & Kinta City are good shopping places.
Ipoh famous with it's local food and cuisine. Try the famous Ipoh White Coffee. Look at old coffee shop instead of chain cafes.
A number of places that can be visited: 1. Lost World of Tambun 2. Concubine Street 3. Beautiful building of the colonial era
A nice place for sightseeing. A lot of hipster cafes/restaurants and old cafes/food courts. Both are worth the trip to Ipoh.
