Ipoh, my favorite historical town and due to its strategically surrounded by limestone caves, I’ve many places yet to be cover in all my previous trip past year. In my recent trip, 3D2N back to Ipoh, I’d a good time visiting this wonderful nature place, Gunung Lang, The Recreational Park.
Gunung Lang – A Recreational Park
Even it’s called a Mountain Lang (Gunung Lang), it’s not exactly a place for hiking or expedition activities, but more on recreational and sight-seeing places. A short break and we continue with our plan to Gunung Lang, not for hiking, but for photo shooting. It has incredibly view lake hemmed in by majestic limestone outcrops.
I cover this place only in the afternoon, means after I check-in into Hotel Abby.
Traveling from KL-Ipoh is a bit time-consuming. I started from KL as early as 6am. Managed to catch up with some famous eatery places in Ipoh at after 8am. I stopped at famous Nam Heong White Coffee stall for breakfast. We ordered Char Kuey Teow, egg tart, mee hoon and most importantly Ipoh town white coffee.
It doesn’t stop here because good food is everywhere in Ipoh.
Again, it was another Ipoh trip in the same year. It might a bit different because it wasn’t simple as we thought. We planned and we went according to the itinerary. What’s more, it’s 3-in-1 trip with few places in my waiting list. What a nice and fulfilling trip this round.
3-in-1 Ipoh Trip … Geng!
18 – 20 December 2009
Planned for more than a month. Initially it was just merely a Back to Hometown trip. Don’t know how unexpectedly, it was turned into 3-in-1, mainly focus at Hot Spring (on the way to Ipoh), Ipoh town itself and Cameron Highlands (back from Ipoh). We have no time for other activities because it was packed!
18 December 2009 …
Our very first destination is Hot Spring (TRAP) @ Sungkai. It took us almost 5 hours playing and soaking with natural flow hot water. We stopped by at Bidor town for our lunch. At 2.00pm, considered having lunch, we still seen many peoples flocking around. My favorite duck mee delicacy was out! $%$#^!@#
An unplanned trip to Ipoh this year. Originally, I was thinking to visit Ipoh together with nearby tourist area such as tea boh farm and hot spring. This capital of Perak is located 200km from KL. In the past, I was just passed by this city without really go around. It has been 4 years since my last trip to Ipoh. I start my journey at 8am from KL.
Ipoh Old Town Trip
7-8 March 2009
What is so interesting about Ipoh? As the capital is well-known on its own history, it’s has been made famous by the food like bean sprout chicken rice. I’m not sure whether it’s originated from here, however, it had been long associated with.
I drive along the old trunk road which save me toll payment about RM24.60. This cost is about half tank of my petrol. I don’t mind driving the slower road but I do care about the volume of vehicles on the road. It just get on my nerve.
Since it’s already lunch time at 11.30am when I reach, I settle down my lunch at famous Ipoh Chicken Rice stall. Yummy. But no pictures here. LoL. I’m not into food blogging. Keke.
