The Best 5-Star Hotel in Ipoh
Ipoh is the capital city of Perak located in the middle of Perak's border. To date, it is the 3rd most populated city in Malaysia. So there must be a good reason why Ipoh is one of the most populated cities in Malaysia, in fact, we have more than 1 reason to convince you to plan a holiday to Ipoh! This is really not an uphill task.
Ipoh is an amazing place on its own and there is really nothing much I can say that would suggest otherwise. From the street art to the friendly people of Ipoh to the mouth-watering local delicacies, it is very much like a mini Penang that is also a tourist hotspot. So what is that great about Ipoh?
Let's start with that one thing that is on your mind, yes we know what you're asking. It's food, isn't it? We are not lying when we say Ipoh is a miniature version of Penang. if Penang is dubbed as the food capital of Malaysia then Ipoh should be food capital number 2, if it makes sense. Anyway, the point is, Ipoh has a lot of good food!
Endless varieties from halal to non-halal, you might need a week-long trip to try everything out. Famously known for its' bean sprout chicken, salted chicken, egg tart, bean curd (legit one of the smoothest bean curd you will ever taste), Ipoh coffees (better than the coffee you can get from any hipster cafe) and many more, like I've said, endless varieties! The only downside is that you might have to brace yourself for a gain in weight.
Today really is your lucky day. First, you come across this very insightful blog post (heh!) and now we are giving you some travel hacks on how to not gain weight while your devour every last bite of Ipoh's best food. It is very easy and you can definitely do it without much of an effort. Fit in some walking between your food hunting or if you want to go the distance, literally, try to travel on feet whenever it is possible. Of course, you don't have to walk around aimlessly because Ipoh is quite a historical city.
We have some recommendations for places you can visit while you're there. Kellie's Castle is one of the obvious choices. It was built by William Kellie Smith (a civil engineer) in the year of 1915, although not completed which made it all the more unique. Other than that, you may consider Perak Cave Temple (magnificent temple built in a cave, much like Batu Caves in Selangor), Sunway Lost World of Tambun, Concubine Lane (best known for handicrafts and street foods), and many more!
