Ipoh, located in the rich tin-bearing valley on the eastern bank of the Kinta River is approximately 200 km north of Kuala Lumpur, along the North-South Expressway of West Malaysia. It is the capital of the state of Perak, one of 13 states in Malaysia.

In the early 19th century, there was a boom in the tin mining industry, which resulted in Ipoh being developed into a one of the main cities of Malaysia. Ipoh today still boasts of colonial era historical buildings and Chinese shop houses in its city centre.

Ipoh is well known for its unique cuisine, which is derived from its blend of Chinese, mainly from Cantonese and Hakka descent, Malays and Indians. Some of its well-known dishes feature its hor fun (rice noodles) as the main ingredient. Others equally as famous are Hainanese chicken rice, dim sums, laksa and satay, all of which can be found in Ipoh On York – A home away from home.
