Since I really like Ipoh, and somebody has already posted the Old Ipoh pictures.
These are some pix of a forgotten city. [I'll try to find somemore Ipoh pix at dusk.]

Ipoh might not have many big, tall buildings like modern Penang or JB.
But, aren't these cool!

the tallest building may be the 20-storey kinta heights flat
not many tall buidlings...but hey..it's still the third largest city in malaysia in terms of land mass

The Kinta Heights flats are the tallest in the City itself right? Then how about that Ipoh City Hall tower near the Jeultong toll? Isn't that a much higher building?

The tower near Jelapang (not Jelutong) is the not the city hall. I believe it is some sort of state builiding and it is currently the tallest in Ipoh.

i don't think we're going to see more high rise there, development in that area are mainly on residential houses.

The area as mentioned can build high rises as it is quite far from Ipoh airport.

Anyway Ipoh has one uniqueness, the airport is in the city, like Hong Kong before 1998.

Subang airport at KL also last time... :)

But Ipoh airport is so small and need to expand if there are going to have more flight to Ipoh in future...

Yeah that's right. Sg. Besi airport (KL's first) was the closest to the city centre.;) It seems people use to complain that Subang airport was too far off! :D

i think the height restriction is not just due to the location of the airport. don't forget ipoh was a major tin mining city. there're a lot of reclaimed tin mining lands around the city...

Years ago, the government said will move the airport to other location like Batu Gajah, Langkap, Tronoh or Klebang. But may be is the financial problem and also it is just a domestic airport with very low customers.
