Ipoh is also famous for its Chinese cuisine. The ‘Sar Hor Fun’, is a bowl of flat rice noodles served in soup. ‘Tim Sum’ is a collection of sweet and meat dumplings served in little bamboo canisters.

The city has many limestone caves and hump-like hills waiting to be explored. For example, the Sam Po Tong is a Chinese temple built within a gigantic limestone cave that houses quite a few giant tortoises too. The Kek Lok Tong is yet another temple in a cave that lies in a nearby range.

For a relaxing retreat, Ipoh may not have the cool of the highlands or the warmth of the beach but it does have a lot of heart and feel for visitors to experience
