Located on the edge of Ipoh's Old Town, close to the Kinta River, Han Chin Pet Soo was originally the home of the Hakka Tin Miners Club, founded in 1893. The old double-storey club house was then rebuilt in 1929. Today, it is the latest tourist attraction in Ipoh as it provides an insight into the shady affairs at the tin miners’ club where prostitution, gambling, opium smoking and many more activities were carried out behind the classy facade of the club. Here, we get to know about the real story of Hakka people and gives an explanation of the history of tin mining industry in our country. This miner club was found by Towkay Leong Fee who arrived in Penang as a penniless migrant in 1876. With hard work and determination, he soon had succeeded in many businesses that he ventured but it was in tin mining that he had his greatest success. Leong Fee died in 1912 and the the club bought thebuilding from Leong’s son and rebuilt it into the fine building which it is today. The museum attracted more than 6000 visitors in the first six months in February 2015 and the number of visitors keep increasing steadily ever since.

Tucked in a hidden valley in the Tambun district of Ipoh, a Tibetan temple complex, consists of 13 storey pagoda and large standing Buddha statue should be one of the most awesome places to be visited once you are in this city. However, due to its out-of- the-way location, it appears to be less visited than it deserves. The architechture of the pagoda is unusually majestic with a massive opening from the 8th floor upwards through which an 11 metre high gold coloured Shakyamuni Buddha statue overlooks hills, ponds, and pomelo farms. Adjoining the pagoda are a number of pavilions and buildings containing statues of deities, Buddhas, guardians, mythical creatures and more.
