Ipoh Railway Station, Ipoh

2.5
Admire the architecture of Ipoh Railway Station, known colloquially as the "Taj Mahal of Ipoh" due to its white color, central dome, and stately design. British architect Arthur Benison Hubback designed the building, drawing influences from late-Edwardian architecture and a wide variety of Western colonial styles. In front of the station, take a stroll through the open plaza and observe the cenotaph commemorating the victims of both world wars, as well as those who died during the building of the Thailand-Burma Railway.

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.
