When I first mentioned to my friends that I am going to Malaysia, and Ipoh will be one of the towns I will visit, I received a lot of advice such as “Not much to see there”, “One day is enough time spent in Ipoh”, and so on. To my surprise, when I finally visited this charming small town, I find that there are a lot of Things To Do in Ipoh.
In fact, the one day I was advised to spend was not enough. I will definitely need to visit this enchanting place again.
Beautiful Mural Art
Just like Penang, Ipoh boasts a living gallery of Mural Art all around this small town. Done in brilliant colors and black and white, there are plenty of mural art for you to discover and enjoy. Read my blog post to see where to find these masterpieces.
Kek Look Tong – A Piece of Paradise
A little distance from the main town is Kek Look Tong. It is a large cave with beautiful stalagmites and stalactites.
There are altars of images of Buddha and other heavenly beings carefully placed around the cave without affecting the beauty of this natural phenomenon.
Behind, there is a little piece of paradise. See the photos and video of this wonder.
