Ipoh is the capital city of Perak and is among the largest cities in Malaysia. During the rule of the British, Ipoh experienced a boom in the tin mining industry and so, many railways were built to shuttle the mined tins to the coastal lines of Perak to be traded.
Today, like most parts in Perak, Ipoh is famous for the delicacies they serve as much as the tourist sites within its borders. Much like Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh is home to many cultures that inhabits this country. In Ipoh, travelers are spoilt with Malay, Chinese, Indian and even Nyonya cuisines. The Ipoh chicken rice stands out as it is known far and wide for its authentic taste. You will never find an empty seat in restaurants serving this delicacy and yet it is worth the long wait.
Moving about in Ipoh is slightly difficult. On top of the traffic congestion, there are no shuttle buses available in the city. Public buses and taxis are the only way to move about the city. These buses tend to begin and end their journey at Ipoh Bus Terminal located along, Jalan Tun Abdul Razak.
