Travel Guide

Vacationers seeking a great mix of scenic, historical, and cultural attractions will love Ipoh, in Pangkor Island - Perak, Malaysia.

Ipoh, in Pangkor Island - Perak, is a city that approximately 650,000 people call home.

Kuala Lumpur, the national capital, is located 110 miles (177 kilometers) south of Ipoh, while Penang is 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the northwest.

This city offers locals and visitors alike a wide selection of outdoor escapes at its many nature preserves. Cactus Point, Gunung Lang Recreational Park and Sultan Abdul Aziz Recreation Park are some of the more popular of these. All these parks have their own unique array of plants and animals.

Kek Lok Tong and D. R. Seenivasagam Park are the perfect escapes when you need to unwind and enjoy the sounds of children playing. Have a picnic, discover outdoor art or relax with the locals at these two green spaces in Ipoh.

While you are on a tour of the city, don't miss the old places of worship. The Mari Amman Temple and the Sam Poh Tong Temple are two of Ipoh’s most popular examples of these. Take the time to enjoy the solemn atmosphere at these special places.

Get familiar with the local fashion and try on new outfits in some of the local shopping venues such as Night Market or Raju Hill Strawberry Farm. These are two of the most popular centers for fashionistas and food lovers who have time to spare in the city.

Enjoy the fast greens and challenging fairways at Royal Perak Golf Club, the best place for eagles and birdies around Ipoh. Work on your backswing, attack the bunkers, then enjoy a few drinks with fellow golf fanatics in the clubhouse bar.

Take a break from sightseeing in Ipoh at Orang Asli Settlement, a popular destination the entire family will enjoy. Pack your sense of adventure and get ready for a day filled with thrills, laughter and magical memories.

Don’t miss the chance to visit the excellent forts and castles in the area. When you look up at the distinct design of the historical Kellie's Castle, it is easy to picture how members of the nobility once fought for this region.

If you’ve still got time up your sleeve after checking out all the star attractions in Ipoh, make sure you pop over to the Gua Tempurung Limestone Caves.
