Bazar CNY at Lorong Seni @ Lorong Panglima Launched

Tourism in Ipoh Old Town to be developed in stages according to Perak State Tourism ExCo, YB Loh Sze Yee.

Modest in scale with 15 vendors at Bazar CNY, it was by design, said the Chairman of Tourism, Industry, Investment & Corridor Development Committee of the Perak State Government YB Loh Sze Yee. The reason for this control was to avoid a negative impact on existing businesses in Ipoh Old Town, a vibrant commercial centre.
