Take a walk through the historic heart of Ipoh old town and discover its cultural heritage on this full-day tour of Ipoh city. Join our knowledgeable guides as they  share insights about this former tin-mining settlement and discover unique spots in Ipoh which will surprise experienced travelers. Stroll through the oldest neighborhood in the capital of Perak, visit temples built inside caves, and walk the halls of an abandoned castle while you listen to the heart-breaking tale of its previous owner.

This is a comprehensive city day tour for those who want to see for themselves what makes Ipoh city one of the top 10 cities to visit in Asia.

Ipoh Heritage and City Tour Meals included: None

After your friendly tour guide picks you up from your hotel, its on to breakfast at a Kopitiam (a popular local eatery). After breakfast we take you on the Ipoh Heritage Trail starting with the colonial Taj Mahal of Ipoh, the Ipoh Town Hall and the Ipoh High Court. Along the way you'll pass by the Birch Memorial Clock Tower as you make your way to the old commercial district which is filled with pre-war buildings and old shop houses full of character and personality. Twist and turn through the old streets stopping ever so often to take pictures of beautiful street art and murals.

You'll also take a stroll down Concubine Lane and learn what tin miners back in the day did for entertainment after a hard, stressful day on the dredges.

Later in the day we take a ride down to Sam Poh Tong and Kek Lok Tong both of which are cave temples built into the limestone mounds that dot the Perak landscape.

Finally walk the halls of spooky old Kellie's Castle (the unfinished mansion of a Scottish planter) as your guide re-tells the mournful story of this eccentric Scottsman.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Entrance tickets must be purchased should guests decide to visit the inside of Kellie's Castle (MYR 10.00 per person). Also note that purchase of food and beverage are at guests' own cost as this is highly dependent on the dietary requirements and preferences of the guests themselves.

Most of the activities on this adventure will take place outdoors. The itinerary is subject to change based on weather conditions.
