Day Trip Adventures: Sitiawan, Perak

Day Trip Adventures: Sitiawan, Perak

Photo credit: Hishgraphics When people think of Perak, the one go-to place would always be Ipoh. I’d disagree. Ipoh has become more commercialised, and getting more and more congested and filled with tourists as time goes by, with mainstream places piling with long queues.

Discovering Ipoh: Old Meets New

There’s remnants […]

Kellie’s Castle, Batu Gajah, Perak

On Saturday, I traveled up north with my friends to Ipoh, Perak for a weekend getaway. On the way, we stopped by at the infamous Kellie’s Castle as we’ve heard a lot about it but have not really step foot to it. This is probably only less than 50% done. I’m sure it will look majestic […]
