The best way to see any country is by walking. Ipoh town is about 5 km long and if you have the energy you can see the town in a day. I took three days so that I can drink in all the sights and sounds. Ipoh is the fourth largest city in Malaysia with less than a million population. It was once a flourishing town with drew hundreds of migrants to the tin mines. There are several heritage trail walks you can take – either on your own or join a tour group.
