Lovely murals. Worth going to Ipoh for that. Just enjoy a stroll at any time of the day. Ipoh is a pretty laid back town (city but I call it town) so there won't be too many people chasing the murals and you will have...More

It's in the middle of town, so the restored houses in concubine lane are the closest you are likely to find to a homestay. Not many people live in the town centre. There are a lot of budget hotels in Ipoh too, but I don't... More
