Despite having a plethora of intriguing sites to offer travelers, Ipoh, in the state of Perak, is one of the less visited cities in the region. In Malaysia, Ipoh is recognized for its old town, which has a lot of intriguing history as well as beautiful street paintings and museums. The great appeal here is that, in addition to enjoying the city, you can also venture out into the countryside, where you can visit cave temples and towering limestone cliffs.

When it comes to its eating scene, Ipoh is no slouch either, and is recognized for its dim sum as well as a variety of cuisines heavily inspired by its big Chinese minority. As if that weren't enough, it's also the birthplace of the delectable Ipoh White Coffee, which any coffee connoisseur should experience when there.
