Ipoh Heritage Trail - Day 2

On the Sunday, we had booked a tour of the Han Chin Pet Soo museum. Enroute, we saw policemen at road junctions and then heard to roar of engines. I still do not know the purpose of this cavalcade, but we had to stop to watch.

Before visiting the museum, we walked down Panglima Lane (Concubine Lane) and had a delicious bowl of silky soft Tau Fu Fa and ginger.

The Han Chin Pet Soo was originally a club for the rich tin miners of the area. It is now a museum which is well worth a visit, even if just to see an old video of how tin was mined. The museum tours take groups up to 20, so you must book online first to be sure. You can even book the dining room for a Hakka-inspired dinner!

After a hour's visit to the Han Chin Pet Soo museum, it was time for lunch then off to search for the Ipoh murals. So, we walked round more hot streets, then back across the padang towards the air conditioning of our hotel!
