Your full-day trip from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh, known for its vibrant food scene includes a day full of good eats and visits to iconic historical sights. You'll:

  • Visit the best spots to savor the mouthwatering kaya puffs (flaky pastry with a jam filling) and the amazing hor hee (light fish cakes served with white rice noodles)
  • Discover the landmarks of British colonialism such as the impressive Ipoh Town Hall, the exquisite Ipoh Railway Station dating back to 1894 and the majestic Birch Memorial Clock Tower

  • The lush and green recreational park Gunung Lang, located 5 km (3 miles) north of the city offering a marvelous lake with a cascading waterfall, a mini zoo, and a long spectacular boardwalk across the swamp

  • Kellie’s Castle - a derelict mansion built by a Scottish planter

Your food tour will continue while you walk through the array of local markets. Here you can feast on a wide variety of local Malay treats: curry noodles, fried turnips known as sa kok, caramel custard, chicken rice, and hakka mee – meatballs with cuttlefish and noodles. Next you can try the yummy traditional dessert named muah chee or stop by a local cafe to try the amazing ice balls.

Ipoh people are also big on snacks, so don’t miss the unusual tapioca chips, fried beans, and murukku (crunchy rice twists) that are favored by millions of people across the country. But don’t worry, because your guide will show you everything! Finally, you’ll get back to your comfortable car and set off to Kuala Lumpur, where you’ll be safely taken to your hotel.
