IPOH CITY PRIVATE TOUR

As one of the most populated cities in Malaysia, Ipoh certainly has much to offer to everyone. Ipoh is no doubt one of the places that has sight, smell, taste, sound and a kind of vibe that combines all of those to make the place feel all-encompassing.

The biggest city in Peninsular Malaysia’s central Perak state, Ipoh is one of the country’s best-girded secrets. Sultans, Brits, tin miners, tea barons, Chinese merchants, street artists and entrepreneurs have all left their mark on Ipoh.

This city perfectly captures the multiculturalism and visible strata of history and custom of Malaysia, with an undercurrent of nostalgia and effortless old-school cool. Accompanying this wonderful retro vibe is a close-knit community feel, something you will feel through this tour’s highlights.

Kellie’s Castle
South of Batu Gajah lies Kellie’s Castle, an abandoned country home sponsored by a Scottish rubber baron in 1915 but was never completed. What was supposed to be a rich man’s dream became a tragedy. Nonetheless, its Moorish-revival architecture is quite spectacular, and the castle is filled with history.

Sam Poh Tong Cave Temple
Ipoh is known for its spectacular Taoist and Buddhist temples, nestled in caves or clinging to the sides of limestone karsts. Don’t miss Sam Poh Tong Cave Temple, the oldest cave temple in the area and the largest of its kind in Malaysia. Beautiful views of Gunung Rapat can be found from the temple entrance, reached via 240-steps.

Ipoh Railway
Designed by Arthur Benison Hubback, it was first constructed and opened in 1935, making it the second concrete station to be constructed in the town. Affectionately known as the Taj Mahal of Ipoh by its locals, it closely resembles its Kuala Lumpur sister. An interesting fact is that it was once the filming place for the movie “King and Me”.

Ipoh High Court
This neo-classical high court is just a stone throw away from the Ipoh Railway, be sure to take shots of its exterior. Since British colonization has left Ipoh peppered with Victorian-inspired architectures all over the city, this is just another one of those undisputed picturesque ones that has pretty much been left untainted much to the joys of all shutterbugs.

Ipoh Hindu Temple
As a spiritual destination for many Hindus, as well as a landmark around which ancient arts, community celebrations, and the economy have flourished, the Hindu temples in Ipoh are each symbolic and an abode of God, with its symbolism and structure rooted in Vedic traditions.

Royal Ipoh Club
With it’s history dating back earlier than 1895, the Royal Ipoh Club is centrally located in Ipoh amidst the luscious green playing fields of the Ipoh Padang. From its humble beginning as a laundry house by the Japanese Imperial Army for the officers living at the nearby St. Michael’s Institution, the Royal Ipoh Club has evolved through the years to become one of the oldest elite clubs in Ipoh.

Padang Ipoh
Having gone through the British Colonial and Japanese Occupation days, Padang Ipoh is a testimony of a common playing field that has withstood the test of time and prejudice, almost as old as the massive casuarina trees (pokok rhu) that dot parts of its periphery. It is today that the old town area surrounding the field seems to be revitalised with a new lease of life
