Beyond the delicious eats and coffee shops serving the city’s famous white coffee, Ipoh is quietly sneaking into the hearts of city dwellers for short weekend escapes from the city.

We took a quick drive across the north-south highway to explore the old shophouses, charming street arts, get lost in the little laneways and soak up all the historic sites this foodie town has to offer. Needless to say, our bellies were filled from the moment we stepped foot in this quaint little town.

The easiest way to explore is to follow the trail of street art. The famous street artist Ernest Z has created 8 breathtaking wall arts that capture the essence of the town, while many local artists couldn’t resist putting their own stamp around the city too.

A quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and you will return with a rejuvenated spirit.  Here’s a quick trailer to whet your appetite. 🙂
