Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia

Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia

City of Ipoh had humble beginnings, yet has bloomed into a delightful cityscape that weds old-world charm with present day pleasantries. This is a foodie’s city, offering many street stalls and eateries all eager to present scrumptious local food. Walk through stunning limestone caves in that appear to be cut by the competent hands of a higher power.

Ipoh is more than a gateway to the Cameron Highlands or a way station on the way to Penang. Molded by the 1920s tin-mining blast, It’s riches and populace ebbed away after the mines’ closure. Be that as it may, an old-town renaissance has resuscitated its time worn structures into boutiques, inns and beautifully kitsch bistros.

Food is enough reason to visit. Malaysian and Singaporean gastronomes show up in huge numbers for Ipoh’s tauge ayam and to compete over who serves the best kopi putih –white espresso, the town’s famous drink.
