27, Jalan TheatreSin Yoon Loong

One of the oldest traditional Hainanese coffee shops in Ipoh old town. They served quality hot and cold beverages, toasts with kaya, Chinese sponge cakes and other local delights. The white coffee here is frothy and very rich. It has a slight bitterness at the end but you can totally smell the fragrance of the coffee. Honestly, the combination of their toast and coffee is a killer. However, if the bitterness is too much for you to handle, I suggest you pop by Nam Heong instead, which is just directly across the road. Nam Heongs coffee is slightly milder and sweeter.15A Jalan Bandar Timah

Kek Lok TongThe Kek Lok Tong Cave Temple is a tourist attraction situated in the natural and picturesque area of Gunung Rapat in the south of Ipoh - the capital of Perak state in west Malaysia. The cave temple sits on a 12 acre site and was used as early as 1920 as a place of worship. In 1960, the cave became part of an iron mining site, this temple is set in a huge cave in the limestone outcrops behind Gunung Rapat, about 5km south of Ipoh City.

The Kek Lok Tong complex comprises a central altar featuring a number of Buddhist figures as well as various deities of the Chinese pantheon. The most unique about the caves is there are another great garden view once you get inside the caves. The limestone hill is made up of light grey to white crystalline Kinta limestone interbedded with about 5mm to 1cm think argillaceous material bands. Primary iron can still be seen within the limestone. The award winning landscape garden features a jogging path circling two lakes and one of the longest reflexology footpaths in Ipoh.

Nam Tian Tong TempleNam Thin Tong Temple(Cave of the Southern Sky) is located in between Sam Poh Tong Cave and Ling Sen Tong Cave. Nan Tian Dong Taoist Cave Temple ("Nam Thien Tong" in Cantonese) is sandwiched between Ling Xian Yan and the further inward, Sam Poh Tong Buddhist Cave Temple. It used to be ranked at par with the Sam Poh Tong and whenever you mentioned Sam Poh Tong, you will automatically associate it with the name of Nam Tian Tong. "Tong" is referred as "cave" while "Nan" is South and the word "Tian" is sky; so if you translate that in English, it simply means, the Cave to host the various Buddhist figures from the southern Sky (heaven). As illustrated with the various colorful personalities and characters at the lower portion of the temple entry section. This is a Taoist Temple in its nature and its another alternative name is Nan Dao Yuan ("Nam Tou Yun" in Cantonese), means College of Southern Religious Principles).

Legend says it was discovered by a Chinese Taoist priest named Kuong San Teik back in 1867 which means to say this temple has a long history of more than 120 years old. In fact, according to a well kept historical journal maintained by the temple management committee, this current chief Taoist priest is at its fourth generation management.
