hi chiahb

thank you for your response to my enquiry. i notice that you are from kl and possibly you have been driving to ipoh frequently enough to be able to navigate around.

a visitor has got to have some clue of the road network to be able to drive in the city.

for the benefit of visitors in this dilemna i wish to share this information that i was able to get a basis map of ipoh from the tourist development corporation of malaysia in singapore and was able to successfully drive around ipoh town.

i found the ipoh drivers a little aggressive and the right turn from heritage hotel was always challenging. perhaps the junction needs traffic lights control as i see this spot is very dangersous.

Travel Tips for Ipoh

Try the famous Ipoh Pomelos

by Wild_Orchid

When you visit Ipoh, friends & relatives will inevitably ask you to buy a pomelo for them. While the prices of pomelos are not necessarily cheaper in Ipoh, the fruits here are fresher and therefore juicier. Apart from eating it cold and fresh, you can also make a delicious and healthy salad using pomelo.
Here's a recipe for you.

Delicious Pomelo Salad - A Recipe

- slivers of Pomelo (peeled and chillled in the fridge)
- finely chopped / pounded roasted peanuts
- lime juice
- white sugar
Toss the above ingredients and top the salad off with fresh mint leaves before serving

I tried the pomelo salad at a fusion restaurant near Plaza Damansara and managed to replicate it successfully at home.



The second picture shows a pomelo which has been peeled. As you can see, it is a citrus fruit that is in the same family as oranges, lemon and grapefruit. However, it tastes quite different from either of those. About the size of a small football, it has a thick green skin and its flesh is white or orange-pink.

A good fruit must always be juicy and can either taste sweetish sourish, or lightly sweet. It may also have a slight bitter after-taste which is due to the thin skin that sticks to the pulp.

Best to peel away the thick outer skin pop it in the fridge and serve it chilled.
In general, they cost around RM8-12 each and are considered a seasonal fruit because they are more popular during the Chinese New Year period.

caving..

by eelaine

ipoh is a town with many limestone caves.. explored and unexplored.. so, depending on your capabilities, there's something for everyone.. the limestone formation inside these caves are magnificent.. most of which took thousands of years to form.. equipments required is very dependent on the cave.. but a pair of good rubber shoes is a must.. or you'll be tumbling down everywhere!

Warisan Kapal Korek - The Heritage of Dredge

by RachelLeung

24 March 2008

I have often been asked about the tin industry in Malaysia by many of my overseas friends and it was a discovery that I made with Warisan Kapal Korek (or “The Heritage of (Tin) Dredge” in English) in Batu Gajah recently that brought my 3 relatives from Hong Kong to visit it.

We drove from Ipoh, taking the exit at Simpang Pulai toll. From there on, we followed the road to Kellie’s Castle, and entered into the Batu Gajah town. From there we followed the direction to Tanjung Tualang, a small town famous for its fresh water prawns, and reached Warisan Kapal Korek.

The dredge forms a mammoth landscape in the vast openness of the place. It is parked on a mining pool. The place has very few trees and one can imagine how the tin miners toiled under the harsh sun not too long ago.

There is a briefing of the tin mining process at a meeting room where photos are shown and Steven, our guide, is on hand to explain everything to us. It is very educational and I highly recommend this place for family outing and schoolchildren. After all, the history of many cities and towns in Malaysia is intertwined closely with the history of tin mining.

The most exciting part is visiting the dredge. It is about 70m in length and 35 m in height. When we are inside, we have to climb steps and there are platforms where we can see the dredge equipment. Reaching the top is no mean achievement for someone like me who is acrophobia. Going through every floor, we feel like we are in a scene out of one of Jackie Chan’s action movies. There are irons frames, large machinery, buckets and conveyor everywhere and we have to pick our way through carefully. It is an adventure not to be missed.

Due to the time constraint, we returned to Ipoh after the visit. However it is recommended that a traveler travels from Ipoh should make a stop at Kellie’s castle (which takes about 30 to 45 minutes to visit) first, then to the Warisan Kapal Korek, the tour of which is about 1.5 hours. Afterwards one can drive to Tuajung Tuallang for a lunch of fresh water prawns before returning to Ipoh. This will make a nice half-day tour.

Gua Tempurong, Gopeng,...

by yeikloen

Gua Tempurong, Gopeng, Perak

This cave is located about 2hrs away by car from Kuala Lumpur. This cave is must to go if you are interested in caving. This cave was first open to public about 7yrs ago(1995), then there were no charge except registering your name with the guard but now there is a RM22 entrance fees for the grand tour or RM11 for a half tour.

Best way to reach Gua Tempurong is by using the PLUS Highway, exit at Gopeng (about 30mins before arriving in Ipoh from Kuala Lumpur) and take a left once you paid the toll charges. Drive about 4km and you will see a sign pointing left into a small lane in between two village houses. From the entrance to the cave is about 4km and trust your instinct and keep going even until you see dirt roads, go on and you will reach the cave entrace.

Make you sure arrive at the cave before 0930 because everyday there is only one trip on the Grand Tour and you will not want to miss it.

Wear anything you feel comfortable, shoe will be good but sandals are fine. A waterfproof torch will be an advantage but any torch with high beam will do well. Bring along a set of cloth for change after the caving.

1. When In New Town..

by 4Czens about Lok Wee Koi

Let's go to Ipoh in the Perak state 'cos that's my first stop for delicious and affordable food.

Ipoh is well-known for its food. So, when you're there, be sure to tuck in! Most people know of Ipoh's famous Bean-sprout chicken 'Nga Choi Kai', but there's lots more! The names of restaurants are in Chinese. Ipoh Sar Hor Fun, Hor Hee, Beef ball noodles, fruit rojak, ice-cream float (ice-cream in your soft drink)
