Ipoh Food Trails by Rail – From KL
- Full Day
Meet the guide at Kuala Lumpur (KL) Sentral station for a day of historical discovery and food trails tour of Ipoh. In the 1880s, Ipoh was famous for its tin-bearing valley known as the ‘City of Millionaires’ during the Tin rush. It is also the birthplace of Malaysia’s white coffee and some of the best flavoured and textured food in Malaysia.

Trains depart from KL Sentral at 08:30 and arrive at Ipoh at 11:15. Sit back and take a comfortable ride through the countryside and watch as the scenery changes from the bustling city of KL to quaint Ipoh town, set amongst the backdrop of magnificent limestone mountains.

Arrive at Ipoh Railway Station, a superb example of colonial architecture. Start the walking tour on
Ipoh’s Heritage Trail, a leisurely stroll around the compact and historic old town area of Ipoh. The walk is about 6.5km long but there is a choice and option to extend or shorten the trip depending on physical ability.

Take in several notable historical landmarks while also stopping to taste the local delicacies. Continue past the mosque at Ipoh and onto the Birch Memorial Clock Tower, built in 1909 in memory of James WW Birch, Perak’s first British Resident.

Stop for some famous traditional snacks along the way. Ipoh’s biscuits and pastries date back to early 1900s where they were traditionally given during Chinese festivals. Today, they are still handmade.

Stop for a coffee at Old Town coffee shop to try Ipoh’s famed white coffee. It is different from black coffee as the beans are not roasted with sugar. From here, explore freely in the numerous hidden cobblestone alleyways of the old town experiencing its rich culture of old-world colonial era. The walls of the old town have been restored and turned into pieces of art and old shops that are now quaint cafes.

Enjoy the taste of laksa for lunch or one of Ipoh’s many famous dishes such as bean sprouts chicken, Seng Kee curry mee or pork satay.

Finish the walking trail at the vibrant Concubine Lane which is home to the best antiques in Ipoh and fantastic architecture. Walk around at leisure before finishing the day with a cold and refreshing snow beer. Then, head back to Ipoh station for the 15:25 train arriving back to the city of KL by 18:15.
