I was in town last Saturday and decided to drop by 15 Clarke Street to check out IpohWorld’s exhibition on Ipoh and the Kinta Valley.

This exhibition, titled “Ipoh and the Kinta Valley: Heritage Lost” is on-going until tentatively 30th June, so if you are interested in the history of Ipoh and Kinta Valley but have yet to visit, do make time to drop by.

Though you might have missed the hour-long lecture, which was delivered last Saturday afternoon, there is still plenty to see and learn from the exhibition.
