  • This is narrow alley with shops and stalls selling food, antiques and souvenirs, otherwise there is nothing much to see. The lane was only about 100 metres in length Concubine Lane (二奶巷, Yi Lai Hong in Cantonese) or Lorong Panglima is bounded by Jalan Bandar Timah to the west where the two popular coffee shops, Thean Chun and Kong Heng are located and Jalan Bijeh Timah to the east where Han Chin Pet Soo Hakka Tin Mining Museum and Ho Yan Hor Exhibition Centre are located. The other two lanes are Wife Lane 大奶巷 (Da Nai Niang - Lorong Hale) where there is a mural of a Fruit Vendor and the San Nai Niang 三奶巷 (Market Lane) where there is a mural of A Man Loading Goods on Push Cart and a mural of Men Having Coffee In A Coffee Chop. The lanes have a history dating back to 1892.
  • An old lane in between old shop houses in Ipoh "old town" converted into hip shopping street. This used to be a place where rich people kept their concubines in secret in the old days. You can find interesting street paintings at various corners here, tourist gift shops, cool coffee place to chill and more.

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.
