    One of the greatest visual experienced Malaysia has to offer!
    I have been to Ipoh many times but have never seen this place before. It has everything; spectacular scenery that you can get right in among, a tunnel through the rock to do so, vertical limestone cliffs with trees clinging to them and rooted in the fantastic lake you can cruise or canoe on, great parking for cars, and great food and service in the restaurant. I won't miss it next time I'm in Malaysia!

    Very Peaceful
    Visited Tasik Cermin - There 2 sites, Tasik Cermin 1 and 2 which are about 250m apart from one another. The lake is serene and still - surrounded by lots of massive limestone. For RM25 per person, you will get to ride a dinghy for about 20 minutes – don’t worry as life-jacket is provided.

    Short, quick breathtaking views
    The journey there was around 15 mins by car from old town. The roads leading up to the entrance of the cave/lake was full of gravel so the car must drive in slowly. The experience was very short, overall 10-15 mins and you would be done by it also depends on your preference on how long to stay at the site. The view was stunning and worthwhile going first thing in the morning when the crowds are less so you can get pictures of the scenery on its own without people interfering in the shots. There's a coffee shop nearby which you can have their famous kopi at as well. Prices are a little steep at this shop.

    Dont Miss It.. Must Try
    One of the best places to visit in Ipoh is Taman Tasik Cermin 2. It's a 20-minute boat ride at Tasik. You got a chance to access a 120-meter-long water tunnel. Beautiful photo shot. Recommended place to visit at Ipoh. Advice to visit morning time, so that you can chance to see some animals like raccoons, squirrels, and goats in the mountains. Don't miss it.

It's a great family outing day, and Tasik Cermin is for sure our No. 1 choise in Ipoh for this round. This lake was basically tins mining area, and we'd being informed by the guide that all were men digged, to as deep as 30 metres or more.

We basically op to take the boat, travelling into a cave, before going into the lake, covered by the greens of walls. Really great experience especially goi g trough the long tunnel/ cabes, whereby we will need to stay low so that we will not being hit by super low ceilings. You must try when you are in Ipoh, and its not far off from the city. Enjoy ...

I would say to people to look at lake 1 and do the boat ride there. There is an expensive entrance fee to walk through a tunnel to look at lake 2, which is not worth the money. They have discounted the tickets as they have not finished building everything there but even then, it can't be justified.

For RM4, it was only worth a one-time visit only. It was crowded, noisy and not worth it. And we were in the queue before the counter opened in the morning! Luckily we managed to get some nice shots before the crowds and noise.

The place is pretty easy to find using Waze apps, and accessible. I went there with my family, too bad my grandma is on wheelchair and she couldn’t tag along since it’s not possible for the wheelchair to access. The cave passage way was clean and neat… and it’s a beautiful little lake at the end of the passageway. I saw some people are paying extra to go around it with little boat.

I wanted to catch up with my friend whom I have not met in 5 years. She kindly offered to drive me to Ipoh which I have never been. So I flew to KLIA where she and another friend picked me up. It was quite a long drive to Ipoh. There is direct flight from Singapore to Ipoh.

While driving to Ipoh, we did stopover for lunch near Cameron Highlands. Food is quite good. The place where we had lunch is popular and packed with travellers going to Ipoh or Cameron Highlands.

Ipoh is not like a big city. It is quite laid back. While places like Lou Wong is popular with tourists but we chose to eat at places popular with locals like Ong Kee. According to my friends, it is cheaper too.

We also shopped for biscuits and snacks. If you do have time, you should shop around before committing your purchases. We noticed that there is a difference of 1 to 2 ringgits for similar items.

While in Ipoh, we visited Tasik Cermin, Kin Loong cafe and Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village. If you are into taking pictures, there are murals in the Cultural Village for you to snap pictures. Tasik Cermin is very serene and a good place to snap pictures. You can take a short boat ride in Tasik Cermin. Kin Loong is just a cafe next to the caves. Be prepared for the long queue. I noticed more structures are being built near the cafe. Maybe next time there will be more food outlets.

While in Ipoh town, we visit Ho Yan Hor Museum and tin alley. We wanted to visit Han Chin Pet Soo (Hakka mining museum) but it was closed. We were advised to book a slot for both museums.

To get around Ipoh, it will be good have a car and drive around.

This place is no longer what it was!
It is now a strictly commercial operation with ticket office and entrance fee, the tunnel is well lit with electric lights and another ticket desk at the other end for those wishing to join the boat tours. Back outside, there is an extremely large toilet block near the Free WiFi Grab pick up point across the carpark from the large restaurant.
Construction is on-going with the creation of more restaurants and shops.
Serene or relaxing it is not.
More like a circus.
