Ipoh has seen a resurgence in the eyes of travellers in recent years as more awareness has developed about the diversity of attractions in the city from the architecture to limestone caves. Let’s explore some of our favourite things to do in Ipoh.
Kok Lok Tong Cave Temple
Dating back almost 100 years, the Kok Lok Tong Cave Temple is one of the most popular caves near the city. If you are staying at an Ipoh hotel, this may be one of the first sites you will be recommended to visit. With a series of statues of accompanying it and a zen garden, it’s a very soothing and peaceful experience.
The Dim Sum
Strange as it may seem, the dim sum of Ipoh is an understated crowd favourite. A short walk from the Travelodge Ipoh you will find Leon Sin Nam street, which literally translates to ‘Dim Sum Street’. With that good of a reputation, you certainly should not miss out!
Visit the Gaharu Tea Valley
If you are searching for greener pastures then the Gaharu Tea Valley and its 200,000 Gaharu trees are where you need to be. The refreshing breeze and verdant hills are sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated.
The Lost World of Tambun
A hugely popular attraction in Ipoh, this theme park is designed with a collection of exhilarating rides for people of all ages. From their unbelievable petting zoo to the relaxing hot springs, you will not regret making a pitstop at the Lost World of Tambun!
