Ipoh Maps and Orientation

(Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia)

The city of Ipoh lies in the centre of Peninsular Malaysia, a long strip of land jutting out into the ocean and home to the country's capital, Kuala Lumpur. The centre of the region is mountainous, with limestone outcrops, rainforests, lakes and rivers, with the coastal plains running to the sea on both sides.

An expressway runs north to south, giving access to the interior, Penang and Kuala Lumpur, and coastal roads run around the region. Touring the peninsula by car will require a detailed map of the area, easily downloaded from the Internet or picked up at Ipoh's tourist office on the Jalan Tun Sambathan, the train and bus stations, or from your hotel's front desk. Car rental companies should also be able to provide maps of the region.

Maps and Orientation of the City

Ipoh is set in the valley of the River Kinta, surrounded by high limestone hills and thick forests. The metropolitan area is divided by the Kinta River into the original colonial hub of the Old Town and the New Town's central commercial and suburban residential districts.

Almost all of Ipoh's attractions lie either in the Old Town or in the surrounding countryside, while hotels, restaurants and shopping centres are mostly based in the New Town's central commercial district.
