Ipoh is the capital of Perak, the fourth largest state in Malaysia. Known as Malaysia’s second food capital, Ipoh has a whole lot of attractions for you to explore. Limestone cave temples are everywhere and Perak Tong Temple is the one you must visit. It houses an amazing 40ft tall golden Buddha statue and has a “secret” spot in the cave. Where? At the very top! The viewing platform gives you a stunning view of the city. Now that you’ve seen Ipoh from above, it’s time to venture into it! Take a tour around town to admire the many charming colonial architectures like the Birch Clock Tower, Railway Station, Ipoh Town Hall and Old Post Office. You should also check out the famous “Second Concubine Lane” in Ipoh Old Town, rumoured to be built by a tycoon for his mistress back in the days. The lane is now a popular hangout spot with shops selling all kinds of snacks and souvenirs. Ipoh Old Town has colourful street art scattered all around, so grab a mural art map from the tourist centre to find them all! (even the hidden ones!) After you’ve worked up an appetite from all that searching, satisfy your hunger with Ipoh’s most famous dish, Bean Sprout Chicken. It’s best served with Sar Hor Fun, a flat rice noodle dish that’s also a famous Ipoh cuisine.
