    Mr.Leong gave a most interesting n professional high quality guided tour. My daughter n I truly enjoyed ourselves in the 1 hr he shared so much of the place n its rich history. Indeed, we left the place with a feeling of awe and heightened interest in Ipoh n her history in tin mining n this exclusive gentleman's club. This place is highly recommended for a visit.

    The venue is quite out of way and you need a transport to access it. Try to purchase the tickets online as it will be cheaper. There are only 2 types of tickets. One with the theme park and includes the hotspring park. The other is just the hotspring which only opens at 6pm. The theme park is opened 11am to 6 pm on weekdays and Hotspring park from 6-10pm. My family and I arrived at about 11.20am and there are already many people inside.

    There are quite a no of activities for the whole family. Most who went there are either small groups of youngsters or families. There are a few pools, wading pools, small water slides, water guns, bigger slides, adventure river and wave pool(but no waves :(). Children would love the petting zoo where you buy a pack of animal feeds(5 different types) and you get to feed many different animals(eg pony, goats, raccoon, rabbits, hamsters, birds, parrots etc). The birds would fly and eat from your hands. There are also rides, though not as big as those in Universal Studio. There are roller coaster, viking, merry-go-round, train ride, haunted house etc. I went on a Friday and the longest to wait is the roller coaster, at about 30mins. There is a zipline and paddle boats.

    There are quite a no of eateries within the theme park. You will find most of Ipoh food(curry mee, prawn fritters, wanton mee, chicken rice, mee goreng, nasi lemak, fried chicken, spagetti, white coffee, steamed peanuts etc). Taste is average. There are also 2 areas where you can rent a locker. The lockers does not have a limit in the no of times you open it. You could also rent a tube to lay on in the adventure river.

    After 6pm, you could enter the Hotspring park, which is just a part of the theme park. In there, you will find a few pools which have different temperatures. The hottest is 40-45 degrees celsius. It is quite small and unless you love hot pools, there is not much to do after 1-2 hrs in hotspring park.

    Overall, if you have a group of friends or kids who love rides and water, you can easily spend a full day at the theme park. You could rent a hut or cabana for RM250-300. You could even have a staycation in the theme park.

    Was very surprised to find a temple located inside the cave. It was quite cooling once you walked inside the cave. There were quite many buddhist statues there and people walked to the end to find a opening where you can look down to see beautiful limestone scenary , plants, flowers. There were also many people around sitting down to enjoy the scenary too.

    Well maintained and cleaned. Must try the steps to the top to see nice views but you need to be an experienced climber for safety.

    We took a walk around town in the mid afternoon looking for the street art. It was quiet and we took really nice photos. Some paintings were faded but overall, they were really nice.

    This lane is a narrow lane of at most 100m with both sides having shops. There are a few eateries, craft works shops, and souvenir shops. There are some murals on some walls where people take pictures.

    You would like like this place if you love taking photos and browse in these shops.

    Iconic building. Colonial style in the western part of IPoh old city. This is a good place to visit - either by train or as a tourist interested in architecture

    The mural art is already fading in some places. But it is a good way to walk and explore the Ipoh town and try the food along the way. There are maps online you can use to plan how to walk.

    I was attended by one of the local tour guides i found online by the name of Kenny. He was very passionate in explaining the historical and cultural side of Ipoh. Well done!

    Sam Poh Tong is a bit overrated for being on the list of the top things to do in Ipoh.
    There is this enclosed valley, at the back, which has two of the main attractions of Sam Poh Tong. One of them is the red pagoda with it's bright colors against the grey cliffs. It looked very appealing but was closed. Looked like they have been closed for sometime.

    We had this in our back pocket in case our planned flying visit to Ipoh fell to pieces it did. We had a couple of really lovely hours here and would have stayed longer if our travel plans permitted.

    The absence of casual racism regarding my skin colour but possession of Malaysian ID was a rare delight. The staff on the ticket counter were simply delightful and really helpful.

    The collection and displays are wonderfully eclectic verging on eccentric. I cannot profess to entirely understanding the link to Dutch style windmills or the presence of a military police motorbike or mock up artillery piece; this would be 5 stars if there was a little more information available in BM or English, what was available seemed to mainly be in Hokkien/Mandaring which sadly I cannot read. However the children had a wonderful time feeding the turtles and fish and thoroughly enjoyed the wishing tree, learning a little more about local culture in the process. Some of the murals were particularly good too.

    We will try to visit for longer next time we are near Ipoh. It was good value for money, especially at RM1 for a big bag of fish food!

    We took a boat to go to that Recreational Area of Gunung Lang.
    Some of the Traditional Malay Houses are not well maintained.
    And also we encountered some littering with plastic drinks and straws.
    We discovered some area near to other lake with small caves.
    It was quite fascinating place.
