Pangkor Island

Perak, the land of grace, beckons visitors with picturesque islands and beaches, magnificent cave temples, exciting eco-adventures and diverse cultures. Steeped in history, this once tin-rich state is home to various races, evident in its fascinating cultural heritage.

Surrounded by rugged limestone outcrops and dotted by grand heritage buildings is the bustling city of Ipoh, which is also famous for its gastronomic delights. Travellers to the state can select their accomodation from among various well-appointed hotels, five-star resorts and budget inns located in the city, town and islands.

The capital of Perak is Ipoh. The name ‘Ipoh’ comes from a local tree called the ‘Pohon Epu’. In its heydays, Ipoh was the economic hub of Malaysia thriving on tin ore. That has come to pass and the town has become a peaceful city which moves at a slow pace.

Ipoh’s food is legendary especially for their silky noodles in soup called ‘Sar Hor Fun’ and Hainanese chicken rice. Locals from other states often come here to buy fruits such as the famous Tambun pomelos, groundnuts and seedless guavas.
