Ipoh is the capital city of Perak state in northwestern Malaysia. It is a tourist center, featuring cultural and culinary delights, street art and markets, and charming sceneries to make up a memorable trip.

One of the highlights of an Ipoh travel is Gopeng Gaharu Tea Valley, an ecotourism site with over 200,000 Agarwood trees. Kek Lok Tong Temple is another must-visit site with its impressive statue of Confucius and surrounding limestone hills. Sampling the local cuisine is an activity you cannot miss when you visit Ipoh. Some specialty dishes to look out for include Chicken and bean Sprouts, Salted Chicken, and Ipoh Sar Hor Fun. Checking out the city’s street art and diverse market offers is also fun. It will introduce you to various interesting finds you will love coming home with.

Getting to Ipoh is via the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport, which serves daily flights from Singapore, Johor Bahru, and Langkawi.

Where to Stay in Ipoh

Click below & search recommended Ipoh hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.


Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
