Where will you travel for holiday now?

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

I'm considering to bring my family to Ipoh next year. Anyone been there before?
Is that Ipoh in Malaysia?

Fairly typical Malaysian city.
Got good chicken rice and the famous hor fun though.
A good side trip to / from Cameron Highlands.

We went to Ipoh and Taiping fr Penang. Visited the Lost World of Tambun and bought nice huge pomelos. Preferred the food in Taiping and beautiful garden. Nice place.

Basically, these are the major things in Ipoh:
1. 芽菜鸡
2. 沙河粉
3. 白咖啡
4. 柚子

Most of the makan are found on Jalan Yau Tet Sin and Jalan Treatre. The pomelos can be found on Grapefruit Street aka Jalan Simpang Pulai. Want to buy the sweetest, best tasting pomelo? Locals say look for the sweetest, most beautiful looking seller (柚子西施) :lol:

Also, when in Ipoh, drop by Sin Eng Heong at Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri to buy their legendary Kaya Puff. Try to go early and avoid weekends, unless you don't mind waiting for hours. Don't say never gai siao ho liao hor.
