Travel Tips for Ipoh

Take a ride on the Train

by Wild_Orchid

One good way to have an overview of the attractions and rides around the Lost World of Tambun without using too much of your own leg power would be to take the train. It departs at half-hourly intervals not far from the main entrance to the park. As it works on a first-come-first served basis, and is quite a small train with only a few carriages, you would need to grab your kids and jump on to grab a seat rather quickly. Furthermore, if there is a primary school group out on an outing (and there are quite a few of those on weekends), the train would be filled in no time at all. My fond memory on the train ride:
My son was rather shy and refused to even look at, let alone say a simple hello to the two aunties and a grandmother who had climbed on board "our" coach. They started talking to me and asking me whether they needed to pay for the train ride and I assured them in my limited Cantonese that there was no extra charge, because the park operated on an all-inclusive entrance fee.

However, after the train ride started, the jungle noises from around the park brought my son out of his shell. He got so excited that he started naming the animals and imitating their cries. Hearing him speak English, so amused the aunties that they started praising him with words such as "Clever boy." After that, we all started speaking in English, which was better than me trying out my limited Cantonese. LOL

I guess my son really liked the ride, because later on, he went a second time with his father and sister. (smile)

Fitness Jaunt- Menglembu, Ipoh.

by vangat

There has to be a reason for people to drive more than 40 km daily to walk up Kledang Hill at Menglembu, Ipoh. I think it is the air. Once you cross 1000 ft your tiredness surprisingly disappears. Must be the ions from the waterfall.

There are 6 routes up the hill with differing difficulty. The most boring and easiest route is to walk the metal road all the way up to the RTM station, about 8km. The second in difficulty is up the flight of steps and then to the RTM. The third to sixth are jungle paths well sign posted. Ask the people there and they will guide you. But, these routes can be tough. Don't let your judgment be fooled by the old ladies hiking there. They are veterans and are super fit.

A word of caution. If you are parking the car at the foothill, make sure it is in the morning of a weekend when there are many people around. Otherwise, parang weilding youths will break into it and steal. The police are useless there. Better to park at the coffee- shops and walk one km to the foothill.

To get there, simply go near Menglembu and ask. Koh Restaurant at Menglembu serves excellent vegetarian food.

Royal Perak Golf Club

by chiabh

The par-72 18-holes course plays to a long 6,376m from the blue tees... The First Nine is 3,172m with the Second Nine at 3,204m... The course is flat with cow grass fairway and is very well maintained... The course has been converted to a buggy course and caddies are also avialable... There is minimal water in play except for some drains that cut across the fairways... It is a comparatively long course with matured shady trees along the fairways... Most of the greens are elevated... The new clubhouse complex was ready for operation and opened officially in August 2009... The complex is impressive by any standard... Besides the up-class man and lady changing rooms, there is also the pro-shop... The golfer's terrace serves Chinese food and seafood... Beside it is the Japanese restaurant...

The club accepts walk-ins now with the green fees at RM180 (weekdays) and RM250 (weekends)... Member's guests pay RM120 (weekdays) and RM180 (weekends) and they must play with the member... This is a buggy course and only members may use the trolley...

Take a tube & Surf around the Hill

by fallendevil

The new RM60 million water theme park "Lost World of Tambun" is located in the historic town of Ipoh in the middle of the North-South corridor in Perak. Ideally located between Penang and Kuala Lumpur.
The park will provide a much-anticipated family leisure attraction for anyone in the area.
It's expected to attract 450,000 visitors annually.
The theme park is landscaped with vines, creepers and lush tropical plants to give the illusion of a “Lost World.” The park is the sister theme park of Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya. It is opened since Nov 2004.

The theme park is two hours drive north from Kuala Lumpur and one-hour and a half drive from Penang. It opens from 12:00 noon until 7 p.m. on weekdays. On weekends, school and public holidays, the park opens at 10:00 a.m. It closes on Tuesdays except if the day falls on Malaysian school and public holidays.
