Once growing extremely rich with tin trading Ipoh is currently one of the top three largest cities in Malaysia. Located in the Kinta Valley south of Penang the blurred Sungei Kinta divides the town precisely in half. Many a hotel in Ipoh Malaysia is found to the east of the Sungei Kinta River and the old town is on the other side between Jalan Sultan Iskander and Jalan Sultan Idris Shah. Once having dated colonial road names many have been traded in exchange for names of a more Islamic nature though many of the signs don't reflect this yet!
