Ipoh, Perak: What to see and do

Famed for its historical stature as an industrial mecca of yore, the Bougainvillea City now houses hushed emblems of its prior manifestation while bearing the markings of colonial significance; all nestled within a characteristic exoskeleton of imposing limestone massifs. Located approximately 200km north of Kuala Lumpur and within an hour’s drive south of Penang, the sleepy stretches of Old Town nostalgia and New Town urbanity offer a meld of tradition and modernity much like its island-town neighbour; while holding true to its individual accent of rustic charm.

Though nicknamed the City of Millionaires due to the mass of riches acquired during the heyday of tin mining, natives affectionately term the town ‘Paloh’ in remembrance of the massive tin ore extraction pumps set up in former mining hot spots. Along with the industrial boom came the proliferation of businesses lining the Kinta River, making way for what is now known as Ipoh’s Old Town – a nostalgic collection of colonial era shop houses named after their respective esteemed owners of yore, among which include the reputable de Silva – famed jeweller and jack of silverware, with even more regally esteemed patrons spanning Siamese royalty and the native Sultanate.

The eateries and cuisine abound mirror the long-lived legacy of the town’s former stalwarts, as local kopitiams and hawker establishments serve tried-and-true renditions of chicken hor fun, dim sum, lor mai kai, egg tarts, and char siew bao – with several outlets operating within their initial foundations and helming inherited recipes spanning generations. Similarly ingrained in the local food pulse is the folk tale behind the hometown flavour of Ipoh eats – believed to owe their aroma and taste to the melding of mineral water coursing through the state’s surrounding limestone caverns.

Venturing within the mountainous expanse of these caverns, adventure seekers and history aficionados can find a weaving of layered fables and ancestral artistry, as steep 400 million year-old hills shield solitary temples such as the Kek Look Tong Buddhist temple in Gunung Rapat, and the Cavern of the Three Precious or Sam Poh Tong, while Perak Cave yields sights of ancient calligraphy and vibrant painted illustrations of deities and idols.

Malacca: What to see and do

Travel back in history to what was once the East’s more formidable city of influence and one of South-East Asia’s UNESCO Heritage Site that is Malacca. What began as a quiet fishing village quickly became the central trading ground for Asian and European merchants under the rule of its first sultan, Parameswara. Its heritage as an international port is deeply etched into the architecture, food, and people that make this state home. One of the artifacts left behind is Dutch Square. Coloured in deep dark maroon, what used to be an administrative building for the Dutch colonisers is now the main town square that graces many a greeting card and tourist photograph. Dutch Square is but the tip of the iceberg that is Melaka’s architectural heritage; there’s Fortaleza de Malaca, a Portuguese fort; Bastion House that once served as a British bank; and the Baba Nyonya Peranakan Museum housed in an actual Peranakan heritage home.

Jonker Street is another favourite and is host to the ever popular Jonker Walk Night Market during Fridays and Saturdays, though when bathed in the harsh light of the weekday is more known for its aged yet nostalgically picturesque pre-war shop houses. Get a mouthful of history with samples of local cuisine, the front-runner being Baba-Nyonya food. Dishes that were once made in the confines of grandmothers’ kitchens have now become eponymous with the city’s fusion flair, along with Portuguese-Eurasian cuisine which one may find at the Portuguese Settlement, home to the descendants of former Portuguese colonisers.

Transporting you a century back with her colonial legacy which was influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch, and British, a port-city tour around the surviving building remnants brings you up close to the enduring reminder of the power wrests which keeps Malacca in the more dynamic sections of the ancient Malay annals.

Genting Highlands: What to see and do

Part of the Titiwangsa Range that forms the backbone of Peninsular Malaysia, the hilltop resort was born out of the late Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong’s vision to build a retreat close to Kuala Lumpur, where city dwellers may go for a holiday to escape the tropical heat and have fun. It is accessible via a hillside route that branches off from the Karak Highway, a journey that takes about an hour from Kuala Lumpur. If you prefer not to drive, there are buses that travel to and from Genting Highlands on a daily basis, or you can skip the windy roads halfway at Gohtong Jaya, and continue the rest of the way on the Genting Skyway Cable Car. The scenic ride takes you past vistas of green valleys and puffs of mist clinging to undulating hills, covered by the blue canopy of the sky stretching in all directions.

At the peak, a city of entertainment awaits; First World Plaza is a shopping centre with over 40 retail outlets and more than 25 restaurants like Giordano, Diesel, Adidas, Starbucks, McDonald’s, and more. The establishment also houses leisure outlets like a karaoke centre, bowling centre, and cinema, as well as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, an exhibition of some of the world’s curiosities, and Haunted Adventure, a near total darkness walk filled with scares and thrills. Adults (over 21 in age) may visit the casino to try their luck at blackjack, roulette, baccarat, or the slots machine, while children can spend their day at the winter wonderland of SnowWorld, arcade, or indoor theme park. The outdoor theme park and selected rides at the indoor park are closed for construction works, and will be unveiled in 2016 at the debut of the 20th Century Fox World theme park.

The Arena of Stars is a 45,000 square feet amphitheatre where international musicians, renowned acts, and award ceremonies have staged their show, including the likes of Michael Learns to Rock, Kitaro, and Boyz II Men. Before you conclude your trip, make a 10-minute drive down the mountain to the Chin Swee Caves Temple, a pagoda that honours Master Chin Swee. It is worth visiting for its traditional carvings and colourful ornamentation, and to see the giant stone statues of Buddha and Kuan Yin against the hilly background.

Penang Island: What to see and do

Before the slew of awards as one of the top culinary spots in the world, one of the most compelling destinations as voted in the NY Times, and being the home of foods worth travelling the world to gorge on, the little island of betel nut palms was the Malay peninsula’s ‘convenient magazine for trade’.

Standing proud as one-half of the nation’s only historical cities (alongside Malacca) recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Georgetown was named after King George III, and is the country’s oldest colonial settlement and the Federation of Malaya’s second city only after Singapore. Embodying all things Penang-nite, the state’s capital is treasured by her people for her heritage and old-world charm. Follow the Heritage Trail walks which take you past the iconic landmarks like Fort Cornwallis, which comes with her own 17th-century Dutch cannon and the cultural-crossroads of the Street of Harmony where the many major religions strive side-by-side, before ending your tour at the Penang Ferry Terminal, where a return ride to mainland Butterworth gives you a view of a metropolis floating on water.

The island’s most famous beach destination, Batu Feringghi is known for her Hard Rock Hotel luxury resort, clusters of para-gliders and windsurfers, and the plentiful stalls of the night market. A coastal heaven which shines with her string of international resorts and sun-worshippers by day, Georgetown’s north-western neighbour transforms into a carnival of lively haggling and colourful exhibits as the sun sets. Surviving the 2004 tsunami waves in form and name, Feringghi’s shores return with her clutches of sun-frolickers on beach buggies and jet-skiers, as well as the odd tanning bodies or two. Then, find a souvenir worthy of a Malaysian night market at the Jalan Batu Ferringhi pasar malam as you polish off your skills in running down prices off imitation handbags, t-shirts, and local artwork.

Then, chart your discovery of Penang cuisine as you drive down ‘The New Esplanade’ of Gurney Drive, the island’s celebrated seafront promenade. Spoken in the same breath as ‘hawker food’ and ‘dining by the sea’, the local’s Persiaran Gurney may intimidate with her handful of fancy skyscrapers and luxury homes, but as you stroll past the high-rise developments and five-star hotels, a rewarding alfresco fare of char kway teow, assam laksa and lok lok awaits. Welcoming the groups of families on a quiet evening out, or the young partiers off for a night in the city, the mobile stall providers open till late and cleverly combine the experience of an authentic Malaysian eat-out with the soothing sensation of a beach getaway.

Johor Bahru: What to see and do

Despite her current standing as the nation’s second largest city after Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru has only recently stirred from her status as a gateway to Malaysia’s various attractions like Cameron Highlands, Butterworth, Malacca, and the capital herself. Unlike her bustling city-neighbour Singapore, Johor Bahru is a stroll past a cluster of shopping malls and hotels that sit next to quaint neighbourhoods and shop houses.

Take a stroll down Danga Bay’s waterfront which is “poised to be as scenic and enticing as Sydney’s Darling Harbour”, according to Lonely Planet. Claiming the honour of being the state’s first residential and recreational park district, the coast-side destination hosts the Danga City Mall shopping centre, the Danga Cruise 8 triple-decker, and a fun park which comes alive with the star-lit skies and gusts of sea breeze.

Consider the menagerie that is the Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple, as you step off Jalan Tun Abdul Razak and into the quietly-glittering interiors of one of Tebrau’s oldest Hindu temples. Guided by the polished surfaces of the sacred grounds, your exploration of this unassuming sanctuary leads you to her prized centrepiece that is Lord Shiva’s lotus. Intricately-designed with prayer beads from Nepal, the former shelter-turned-pilgrim’s sanctuary was said to be inspired from a glass artwork of a Thai wat which was visited by the Guru Bhagawan Sittar.

Riding on the commercial wave which comes with the transformation of the Johor Bahru Central Business District, the theme parks of Legoland, Hello Kitty Land, and Little Big Club offer a bevy of thrilling rides just outside of Johor Bahru. Home to the interactive attractions of the first international theme park in Malaysia, Legoland houses MINILAND, the action-packed LEGO TECHNIC, medieval LEGO KINGDOM, and more. Meanwhile, a short drive offers access to the first Sanrio Hello Kitty Land established outside of Japan, with an array of iridescent displays and engaging activities to occupy fans of the infamous cat. Close by, the Little Big Club hosts six themed play zones containing many iconic characters from HIT Entertainment including Bob the Builder, Thomas and Friends, Barney, and Pingu.

Kuantan, Pahang: What to see and do

Along the stretch of hilly landscape of Peninsular Malaysia’s east coast sits Kuantan, the capital city of the nation’s third largest state. Starting off as a fishing village with small businesses as its primary economic source, it now gains its wealth from production of handicrafts, salted fish, keropok, and batik material, and is known to serve as the administrative and commercial capital of Pahang. Kuantan is famed for its beaches, Teluk Cempedak being one of the main tourist attractions apart from Cherating. During the warmer seasons from March to October, you can see beach-goers frolicking in the seafoam green waters, getting a tan, or having fun with activities like surfing, jet skiing, and boat rides.

The locale is also abundant with rivers and waterfalls, its most well-known being Sungai Pandan Waterfall favoured by locals and tourists alike for its stream of clear, cool waters and surrounding greenery. At Sungai Lembing, explore the history of tin mining by traversing one of its underground mines, and visit the museum after to see the olden techniques and tools used during colonial times. Kuantan is also home to Bukit Gambang Resort City (BGRC), one of Malaysia’s largest water theme park resorts, which encompasses 547 acres of land including a lake, a wave pool, and a Safari Park, home to exotic creatures like white lions, alpacas, and giraffes. After a long day out in the sun, cool down in one of the shopping malls around town like East Coast Mall, Kuantan Parade, or Berjaya Megamall for a spot of shopping or dining.
