From Kuala Lumpur: Full-Day Tour to Ipoh

3. From Kuala Lumpur: Full-Day Tour to Ipoh

Your full-day Ipoh tour starts with pick-up at your hotel by air-conditioned vehicle. A professional tour guide/driver will accompany you throughout the tour so you can relax and enjoy yourself. Once in Ipoh, start your adventure with a delicious breakfast. Ipoh has an extremely vibrant food scene that can satisfy even the pickiest gourmets, so prepare your taste buds! Your guide will show you the best spots for a morning cup of tea, savor the mouthwatering kaya puffs (flaky pastry with a jam filling) and the amazing hor hee (light fish cakes served with white rice noodles). Afterward, it’s time to discover the landmarks of British colonialism. The impressive Ipoh Town Hall stands out against the bright blue skies as a symbol of local government and one of the most prominent historical spots in the city. The exquisite Ipoh Railway Station was erected in 1894 and later modified by Arthur Benison Hubback, who brought elements of neo-Moorish and neo-Saracenic styles to the station’s exterior, adding domes and open-air loggias to the original design. The majestic Birch Memorial Clock Tower also boasts graceful architecture. Ipoh’s famous white coffee is a must-try for every foodie. Your guide will show you the best spot to take a break and enjoy this delicious beverage. The next stop is the lush and green recreational park Gunung Lang, located 5 km north of the city. Covering an area of more than 30 hectares, the park offers a marvelous lake with a cascading waterfall, a mini zoo, and a long spectacular boardwalk across the swamp. The magnificent Perak Tong is also a place that can’t be missed. Filled with hidden grottoes and recesses, this cave temple boasts more than 40 Buddha statues scattered around its premises. A stunning 12-meter golden Buddha will make you want to sit and enjoy the calmness of this place for hours. Your food tour will continue while you walk through the local markets. Here, you can feast on local Malay treats: curry noodles, fried turnips known as sa Kok, caramel custard, chicken rice, and Hakka mee – meatballs with cuttlefish and noodles. Next, you can try the yummy traditional dessert named muah chee or stop by a local cafe to try the amazing ice balls. Ipoh people are also big on snacks, so don’t miss the unusual tapioca chips, fried beans, and murukku (crunchy rice twists) that millions of people across the country favor. But don’t worry, because your guide will show you everything! Finally, you’ll return to your comfortable car and set off to Kuala Lumpur, where you’ll be safely taken to your hotel.

Overall rating

Activating the eSIM was easy. Make sure that you have a good internet connectivity during the process. Make a screenshot of your QR code and zoom in on it, otherwise it won’t be recognised. After, check your mobile settings for using the correct data plan. This sim has only internet data.

It works fine in KL and Langkawi (social media, email, Netflix, YT). I recommend it
