While being the third largest city of Malaysia, Ipoh is a really quiet city. It is located in Northern Malaysia at about 3 hours by bus from Kuala Lumpur. It is not meant to be a tourist hotspot in the country. Truth is, there is not a million things to do in Ipoh but it is worth spending at least a day!
If you enjoy asian food or street art, do not miss on Ipoh! There are tons of incredible pieces of street art to explore in the city ; each one of them having their own style! Ipoh is also known as a food hotspot. You can literally find any type of Asian food in the area (Malay, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and many more). They taste like heaven in your mouth!
There are a few places worth visiting within walking distance of the city center such as the Birch Memorial Clock Tower, the Railway Station, the Town Hall, Masjid India Muslim or Masjid Panglima Kinta.
