What to expect

Visit the Malaysian city of Ipoh on this private day trip from Kuala Lumpur. Roughly 120 miles (200 km) north of KL, Ipoh is known for its British colonial architecture, as well as its street food. You'll see limestone caves and heritage structures like the Ipoh Old Railway Station and Kellie's Castle, plus enjoy lunch in Old Town.

  • Begin your adventure with a delicious breakfast.
  • 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
  • Take a break to sip a cup of Ipoh’s famous white coffee
  • 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 along spectacular boardwalk across the swamp
  • The magnificent Perak Tong comprised of hidden grottoes and recesses, a cave-temple boasting more than 40 Buddha statues scattered around its premises including the stunning 12-meter golden Buddha
  • 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 are known as a 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.
