Once a mining in the 1920s and 1930s, Ipoh is slowly emerging as a new destination to go while in Malaysia. Historical shophouses in the Old Town area are being converted into cafes, boutique hotels, galleries and gift shops. Definitely worth a day or two while on your way to the other more popular destination, Penang.
