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.

It's probably the only way - except getting a nice , local, guide ! , to see the places worthy seeing. Ipoh has a bit of history and unless you look very well, you could walk straight past it. So I recommend you print out,...More
