Ipoh, Perak, is a peaceful and serene city. It is known for its delicious food and friendly residents. However, jobs might not be as good as in the capital KL and the state of Selangor. Life is more relaxing in this city as compared with the capital KL.

People should know by moving to my city it means slow traffic, albeit having terrific dishes. It’s also a calm city and people are often seen conversing with one another. Despite being in a state that requires you to understand the accent, our city is less stricter when it comes to accent.

Ipoh, in the state of Perak, is one of the less explored cities in the region. If you are travelling with a family then the Lost World of Tambun is a great pick on a visit to Ipoh. This theme park is one of the biggest and best attractions in the area and you will find a vast complex that has a range of interesting sections. If you want to stay a little longer at the Lost World of Tambun then there is also a resort here.
