Ipoh – Part 1

For those of you whom are not from Malaysia, Ipoh is a city and also the capital of Perak state. It is a 2 to 3 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. Ipoh is a laid back city with heavy influences of the colonial era. Huge trees paired with colonial architecture, this combination created one of the most romantic cities in Malaysia.

Bricks & Barrels Pub, one of the most, if not, the most happening spot in Ipoh at night

Ipoh is widely famous for its food, due to the water in the region which flows from the highlands. Apart from food (which will be covered in Part 2), Ipoh is also famous for the numerous caves, most houses a Buddhist temple. We got the time to visit one of the caves, namely the Blue Sky Cave, the light inside the cave was incredibly dramatic.

At some points, it were so dark we needed to use the iPhone’s LED light

Would like to take the opportunity here to thank my friend, Ron for being my local guide in Ipoh for 2 days. If you are wondering about the last image, my GF is a little of the Tarzan type, she told me that the walk up into the cave was not challenging enough and prefers those trails that do not have stairs already in place. O-kay…

    I’m a bit obsessed with the idea of night markets. I think one thing on my bucket list is to visit all the world’s night market…

        I don’t think we have too many, if any. There is to be a night market celebration on the 28th of this month in Pasadena. I’m hoping to get a chance to go.

        Because they seem totally awesome!!!!
