Ipoh is the capital of the state of Perak in Malaysia and it is the fourth largest city in the country and serves as the gateway to Cameron Highlands. The tin mining boom of the 19th Century is responsible for the great development of this city; it was the second administrative centre of Malaya during the era of British colonial rule after Kuala Lumpur. Despite the declining economy of Ipoh after independence, the colonial importance of the city still shines greatly via its grand old buildings like the town hall and the railway station that complement the shop house rows.

Today, Ipoh is best known for the excellent restaurants, famous local dishes and hawkers who make the city shine all year round. In the 1980’s the streets of Ipoh were renamed and you might find it a little confusing as most locals still use the former road names used during the colonial era. Getting in to Ipoh is mostly done via Sultan Azlan Airport and daily flights operated from the airport to various destinations. Trains are also common in Ipoh and most people prefer using them for connecting to other cities like Kuala Lumpur.

There are many things to see in Ipoh and you can rest assured that your holiday vacation will be an awesome one. This is a place where you will find many interesting specialties like the famous Ipoh Fragrant Biscuits and some handmade wares like pottery. Eating in Ipoh is something that you will really be thrilled with as food here is quite cheap and sublime and local specialties like bean sprouts and chicken will really make your visit a memorable one.
