Travel back in time to the 1950s of Malaysia when you’re in Ipoh. If you’re looking for a quiet time this long weekend. Ipoh would be the best choice for you to go for a stroll at Taiping Lake Garden, Gunung Lang Recretional Park, Art Of Old Town, Royal Belum State Park Perak and more!

Penang Island

Penang is no doubt one of the very few places in Malaysia that has preserved its history, beauty in architecture and that is why it is still referred to as the Pearl of Orient in Malaysia. Take a slow drive to Penang this weekend and absorb all it all with your friends and family.

You can visit these few historical sites while you’re in Penang!

Visit the Kek Lok Si temple at night!

Food places are aplenty in Penang, you’ll never go hungry! When you’re done feasting, you can also take a walk down the streets of Mural.
