I stayed at Octagon Homestay in Dec 2017 which is smack in the middle of the new town. Its a new condo but they rent out the apts out. There is a reception on the 8th floor and there is secured parking in the condo. Good thing its walking distance to all the famous food be it bean sprouts chicken, hor fun, biscuits shop, tong sui kai etc

Clean, cheap and good. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the tip. Unbeatable location. Moreover, the property is very new.

One more thing ...taking uber/grab in Ipoh is very cheap...MYR 4-10 only...Uber has a sight seeing package for 4hrs+ at very reasonable cost too.

Pls check out uber ipoh

https://www.uber.com/en-MY/blog/ipoh/ubertrip-in-ipoh/

Even I drove to Ipoh I took uber to save the hassle of parking and paying touts. If you need to pay touts it is at most MYR 2-3 for them to sell you parking coupons. I did paid once at Concubine Lane as I visited it again on the day I depart from Ipoh.

Hi Tang Tang,

Yes,, it is accurate the pasar malam one. Been like this since i was a kid.

each of them is unique, I always encourage people to go Pasar Malam, Its too under-rated . Try all the snacks, so yummy . You can never find pasar malam like this in Singapore. Oh, also please dress simply and carry only neccesary money ( rm 50-100 ) is enough .

cheers,
