  • A lot of interesting murals, gorgeous background if you love to take pictures. Very crowded on weekends but still bearable. Nice snacks stall around too. Don't miss out on the local 'kueh' and pastrie...  more »
  • So lovely to see this old town being put to use in such a great way. Not only does it clean up this old part of Ipoh town but such great job at letting everyone remember the good ol' days of the 60s, ...  more »
  • Concubine Lane is so named because it was where the rich men kept their concubines (in days long past). Much of the lane was in a major state of disrepair for many decades, until it was restored in th...  more »

  • Worth place to sight see. Heritage building which almost untouched. New element of fusion of new design and traditional design of building. Specific to local historic wall murals can be located as well.
  • Nothing much to see or buy here, just a bunch of trinkets and items made in China. Nothing I would consider local or related to the Malay culture. There's some Chinese restaurants to eat at, and some chinese snacks being sold. The buildings overall just look old, not really heritage. Take a walk around the city not just in the touristy area, and you'll see those same style buildings. You can walk through this lane in under 1 minute and see everything. Very sub par market lane full of Chinese tourists.
  • It used to be a great place for sightseeing, for the British colonial buildings and some local snacks... But nowadays it's full with people selling souvenir which damages the look and feel of this attraction.
  • Tourist hotspot. Although it seems to have many attractions but local people know these attractions are made for tourist. Personally, I think the tofu fa (bean curd) is worth to try, with ginger sugar syrup. This place has vintage buildings, but actually the food around this area is more attractive than those "historical" buildings.
  • Most fun street in town. Worth walking down once or twice. Lots of fun snacks to try. Cute.

Where to stay in Ipoh

The main concentration of lodgings in Ipoh currently cluster in the newly developed sections of town. Beware of a proliferation of hotels in Ipoh attributing generous stars to their names--a practice that doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of some of the establishments. Do your research in advance to avoid disappointment. The range of available options is huge, with several Ipoh hotels catering to different budgetary needs. The luxury hotels here often have annexed spa and wellness treatment centers.
