1. From Kuala Lumpur: Private Ipoh History & Food Day Trip
Start your day trip with hotel pickup in Kuala Lumpur city center at 7:30 AM. Board an air-conditioned vehicle with your knowledgeable guide to begin the 2-hour journey to the charming town of Ipoh. When you arrive, admire the Ipoh Railway Station with its neoclassical and Edwardian Baroque architecture. Marvel at this impressive building which is referred to as the Taj Mahal of Malaysia. Then, drive past the city center where many British colonial buildings remain intact before stopping at the original Old Town White Coffee for lunch. Next, visit Kellie's Castle and the magnificent limestone cave temples of Perak Tong, home to more than 40 Buddha statues. Finally, walk through Ipoh's city markets to try a range of local treats. Sample bean sprouts, chicken, snowflake beer, and Heong Peng. Finish this off with a traditional dessert like sugary rice balls called muah chee. At the end of the tour, head back to Kuala Lumpur where you will be dropped off back at your hotel.
