    A good insight into the lives of tin mining tycoons. Glad not to have missed it. Our guide, Leong, was very pleasant and knowledgeable.

    Ipoh World at Han Chin Pet Soo , Ho Yan Ho museum , 22 Hale Street , and Tin Alley are highly recommended museums nearby the area) All these old market street places give a great history tour of Ipoh and like travel to the past.

    I can't imagine that there is such a beautiful gift shop in Ipoh. The staff are very friendly and the proprietress is a very elegant and retro fashion woman.

    Always passed by this mall when we are in Ipoh, its very centralized location made it a must stop. Although the mall is not big, its quite a nice place to go to, if you need to buy some clothes or go to Parkson, or to the restaurants for some food.

    I got lost trying to locate this spot. This gallery is located at the basement of the Xcess bookstore. The way to the basement is interestingly designed. Not much stuff about Yasmin but enough to get the feeling of her inner self attributes

    Relocated recently from Concubine Lane to on top of Time Tunnel in Jalan Panglima, Ipoh Old Town.
    This is Elvin's personal collection of Cars, Planes, Models; proudly displayed with lots of photo's, history and articles. He is wealth of knowledge on his collection, which has grown since our first visit here in Feb 17.
    Very moderately priced, and for all collectors this is something to aspire to!!
    See you soon

    Really nice geology museum. It covers everything related to geology in a clear, informative and interesting way. I'm not directly into geology but found it very interesting. Very modern and well kept feeling. It is small, but not as small as expected. And it's free!

    I stumbles upon this museum when doing the heritage walk. The building itself is very well kept and the staff was very friendly. Nothing wrong. Just a bit, well, boring. You get to see equipment used in tin mining and learn about some of the historical buildings in Ipoh. Not all information was translated to English. There's no reason to not drop in if you happen to go by past it. But also no reason to make a plan to get out there. It is free!

    This museum is best for Malaysians and Singaporeans aged 30 years and above as it can fill one with nostalgia. I do however think it needs some maintenance as some parts were dusty and a few rooms were stuffy with no fans.

    Revisited the hot springs 30 years later but now as a new and beautifully landscaped full-service retreat. Arrival was met by genuinely warm staff who whisked us to our suite with both a private dipping pool and hot spring tub. Room was nicely decorated and adorned, although somewhat eclectically, but with all the amenities that a modern traveller would expect from a high-end resort, viz. multiple charging stations and super-fast wifi that permitted unfettered zooming. Our suite had access to a dining table and large and comfortable sitting area that allowed us to entertain visitors. Bed and bathroom areas were well laid out, spacious, and comfortable; everything worked well and products were of high quality. Access to a private hot spring pool was a nice feature that we partook and enjoyed frequently. There were 2 TVs but the selection and quality of the programs were poor. The property had a number of interesting caves that provided some distraction and entertainment and arguably instagram-able pictures. Partook a "long" session at the spa facility, which lay-out was also very nicely designed - however, service provided was below expectations; I sensed the masseur's discomfort with what she was doing. Ate at the Pomelo restaurant for breakfast and 1 dinner that provided a wide selection of local dishes. The offerings were tasteful but could be of a much higher quality - that reflects the reputation of the renowned Ipoh restaurants. Overall, a very good experience and would revisit if looking for a quiet getaway. I should note that all the staff with whom we interacted with were wonderful - although some could benefit with additional training (restaurant and spa).

    The place is clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating! The location is also near mall and restos, very conducive for travellers.
    My masseuse is good! I felt really relieved from back pain afterwards!
