If you have not been to a cave temple, Perak Tong is a good easy place to go. Just outside Ipoh on the main road to Kuala Kangsar bus 35 or 66 from Ipoh bus station, only 1.5 ringett and the bus crew will tell you where to get off. Well decorated caves with gods and other deities and many... More

Perak cave is one of the many caves for Ipoh visitors. Have to admit that it is relatively more well maintained than some of the others.

Good for short trip for local sight seeing. A lot of climbs and slippery staircase due to water dripping from the top of the cave. A bit dark at some of the part and narrow and steep, so need to keep an eye especially for young children and old family member. Did not manage to reach the very top of... More

The entrance is a huge cave which many statues and a gigantic Buddha resting at the centre. After entering you might be asked to donate some token for the building and maintenance of the temple, MYR10 should be sufficient. Love it that we could have our names written on tiles that I presume will be built on the temple. Head... More

If you expect a cave exploring trip, forget it. If you, on the other hand, expect to see just another temple - there are so many of them in Southeast Asia, I know - then give it a chance and go for a visit! Totally worth it! When u enter the cave (free of charge), there is a frickin' large... More
