On my last day of my trip after exploring Cameron Highland and Taiping, I went back to Ipoh for my last night before next day departure back to Johor Bahru. The main destinations are the Kek Lok Tong and Sam Poh Tong temple. Both are on the same direction. You will pass Sam Poh Tong when you go to Kek Lok Tong.
For visiting here, you will need to use taxi or own car as no public transports are available. Kek Lok Tong is a chinese cave temple and it’s worthed to visit the temple with the good view of the cave, temple and surrounding. There is no admission fee to enter the temple.
The second temple in the area is Nam Thean Tong. Nam Thean Tong is also a limestone chinese temple and was discovered in 1867 by Chinese priest, Kuong San Teik. You can climb 138 steps to the top to have bird eye view of Ipoh from here. However during my visit there, I did not climb the stairs as some of kids who just went from the top informed not much view from the area. You might want to try during your visit.
I later spent my afternoon at Ipoh old town area to try Ipoh Sar Hor Fun. You can find the famous Ipoh Sar Hor Fun at Jalan Bandar Timah. There are two coffee shops famous for this, Thean Chun and Kong Heng which located side by side.
I finally choose to try the Thean Chun which is said as the best one and also pork satay at Thean Chun as well. I am quite surprised when the Sar Hor Fun was served especially because of its red colour soup. Ipoh sar hor fun basically is rice noodle like kwe tiauw served with prawn soup and shredded chicken. The pork satay looks simple but taste good with the peanut sauce.
