Ipoh — 2 nights

The city of Ipoh, fourth-largest in Malaysia and historically a mining town, has recently seen a complete reinvention and resurgence as a burgeoning tourism destination, thanks in part to its significant heritage.
Bring the kids along to Ipoh World at Han Chin Pet Soo and Kek Lok Tong Cave Temple and Zen Gardens. Go for a jaunt from Ipoh to Taiping to see Taiping Lake Gardens about 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Lost World Of Tambun, get to know the fascinating history of Concubine Lane, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Bukit Kledang, and take an in-depth tour of Ho Yan Hor Museum.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Ipoh trip maker site.

Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. In May, daily temperatures in Ipoh can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can drive back home.

Abode of Grace
The Malaysian state of Perak centers around human history and natural beauty. Dutch and British colonial empires both viewed the area as strategically important because of its tin mines, and the footprint of the two European powers can still be seen in historical sites, architecture, and museums here. The rural inland regions feature untouched areas of forestland, while the coast is made up of remote islands dotted with quant fishing villages and white beaches.
