- Ipoh, capital city of Perak state, Malaysia, also known as Hill City, because it is surrounded by hills. Hmm,well, not mountains, or else it will call as Mountain City, hehehehehe.... She is not a developed city as comparing to Kuala Lumpur,federal capital of Malaysia. Thus, most of natural and old structures are preserved. It is a leisure city where it keep its slow pace of life. For those who want/need to escape from their busy life style, it is a good choice. However, if Hill City is only a place for people to relax, it is no point making a tour here, you can simply go for a spa, sauna or maybe take a good rest in you home. Hill City, surrounded by hill, also famous on its cave, temple laying on the hill, and of course, food!!! Ipoh is known as Food paradise in Malaysia. After read my bla bla bla so long and heavy, here come the main characters.
