The Central bus terminal in KL is located at Puduraya (N3 08.749 E101 42.004) which is stone throw away from Chinatown.

The bus will be leaving Kl & reaching Ipoh bus terminal in about 2.5-3hr. Location: N4 35.623 E101 04.362

To UTP Campus (N4 23.136 E100 58.726) , u need to check wth Ipoh locals once u reach there..I'm not sure but I know there is another bus terminal cater for buses going to Lumut 200M Southeast from Ipoh bus terminal at N4 35.558 E101 04.462

p/s: The coordinate is for you to copy & paste to Google Earth for the exact locations of those bus terminals mentioned above. Ticket prices is cheap...probably ~RM20+ to Ipoh only- not sure)

Medan Gopeng is the terminal in Ipoh. Or why not go to Kampar and take a bus from there?

Travel Tips for Ipoh

Some Rich folks do retire here

by Wild_Orchid

Ipoh was formerly a tin-mining town. Its natural lime-stone caves were also useful in mining for marble and quarrying activities which are used in cement making.

During the days of English colonialisation, this was the first place where British miners and planters drove and owned cars. This is why the car registration plate numbers start with "A". By comparison, the next state to have any car owners was Selangor, which starts with "B". Nowadays, it's the local businessmen who drive the big cars. Where the Brits had their Rolls, the locals favourite is the Mercedes Benz, as can be seen from the picture.

Driving through the older part of Ipoh town, close to Jalan Tokong, I noticed that there were many used car yards lining the street (immediately after the Chinese temple). While the usual second hand Protons, Hondas and Toyotas could be found here, many car yards featured Mercedes Benz, BMW's and a few up-market Four Wheel Drives such as Pajeros and Range Rovers.

Whitewater rafting in Sungai Itik and Jahang

by heryanti

City dwellers longing for a quick getaway of adrenalin rush? Fret not..Head down to Ipoh, Perak (a state in Malaysia which is about 2 hours' drive away from the capital Kuala Lumpur). Here, you can have some adrenalin pumping fun rafting the whitewater rapids (Grade 3 and Grade 5 in May-June)

The adventure starts from Sungai Itik, where rapids called Double Decker and also Singapore junction awaits. Exhilarating indeed! Raft through the river to sungai Jahang where if water conditions are good, proceed and end at sungai kampar (total 10km). If water conditions are not good, i.e. to shallow, then won't proceed to sungai kampar and the journey will be 8km in total.

By the way, for non speakers of the Malay language, sungai means RIVER. River booties are recommended. If not covered shoes with non-slip soles works too. The life jacket, paddles and helmets will be provided by the adventure service provider you engage. There are 3 :- Uhuru, Riverbug and aww... I forgot the other one. Do a search in google, "Whitewater rafting in Ipoh" to find out contact details of some of the adventure cos.

Perak Tong Cave Temple

by Willettsworld

Perak Tong (Perak Cave) Temple is located at Gunung Tasek about 6km north of Ipoh and houses over 40 Buddha statues and many murals. The cave was discovered in 1926 by Chong Sen Yee and his wife Choong Chan Yoke who came from Jiao-Ling province in China. On approval from the Perak State Government, they started to develop a cave temple. Over a 50 year period, they worked in and around the cave temple. A 40-metre high statue of Buddha in the temple is the tallest and largest of its kind in Malaysia.

Open: 8am-5pm.

Don't miss this restaurant of Dim Sum

by l_joo about Foo San

City centre looks like 70’s Kuala Lumpur. The main objective and mission to visit Ipoh for me is to stop over and eat the famous Taugeh Chicken Rice and if I arrive early in the morning, I will go to the Dim Sum restaurant, Foo San (photo).
