There are some beautiful heritage buildings in just a few blocks. They are different styles that adds to the interest. A real must see as you move around town..

Ironically for a town that prides itself on walking tours Ipoh has the worst footpaths we encountered in Malaysia. We saw some nice buildings and art but it was very difficult to navigate Old Town. Fixing the footpaths would make this experience much more enjoyable.

Ipoh Old Town is not that big and full of colonial buildings, so it's a great place to observe historical architecture. In addition, there are a number of large murals on the sides of buildings scattered across the Old Town to look out for.

Ipoh Heritage Walk is an excellent trail through the old town of Ipoh. You see the old commercial buildings with many over 100 years old, as well as colonial buildings built by the British. Better to avoid the hottest part of the day to maximize...More
