Ipoh was definitely my favourite part of Malaysia. It's very unique, extremely interesting and beautiful, yet quite empty and not very popular among tourists, to my surprise. Ipoh is a perfect place to feel and experience the local culture. It's not trying to create touristic entertainment, it is charming the way it is. The old buildings look shabby and pretty at the same time which would make them perfect movie decorations. And you'll never get bored in Ipoh: with a numerous murals painted on the walls across the city, trying to find them all will turn into a great activity.
