Ipoh: The Town That Has It All

Looking for a day or two of rest between Penang and Kuala Lumpur during your peninsular travels.  Look no further than the city of Ipoh in the great state of Perak

Perak Tong Temple Complex.

Turtle ponds...

For those who reside in glass houses:

Urban and industrial sprawl tucked into a mystical landscape.

The pregnant gal made it to the top.

Residential Subdivisions (Feels Just Like Home) by the Overweight Suburbanites.

Organic pomelos.

Downtown Ipoh.

Psychedelic Christmas.

The revered Lou Wong's. The best boiled chicken and beansprouts we've ever encountered.
