  • This is an excellent guided tour of the history of tin mining in Ipoh and the club of the mine owners. It's free to visit, however the suggested donation is worth every cent. Please go to the website to make a reservation to plan your visit.
  • Very nice tour explaining the tin Mining operations and history of the Hakka. Would definitely recommend. Our tour guide was super friendly and made it a superb experience. Would definitely recommend!
