Pulau Lang Tengah

Pulau Lang Tengah is a small postcard island with only 3 resorts located halfway between Perhentian Island and Pulau Redang.

Ipoh

Ipoh is the apital of the state of Perak and the fourth largest city of peninsular Malaysia with a population of 760,000 (Metro area: 1.4 Mil). It is scenically located amoung karst limestone hills in the Kinta Valley, about 2 1/2 hours north of Kuala Lumpur. The city is somehow forgotten by most travellers in Malaysia, however it has a lot to offer with many colonial buildings and shophouses (it used to be a very rich city around the turn of the 19th century due to tin mining) and the nature (hills, caves) around. Among Malaysians it is known for good food like the popular Ipoh Chicken Rice.

There a few big stores in Low Yat but mostly it's small open shops and booths so it feels almost like a market.
The basement has ATMs, a few restaurants and a decent food court (Lemon Court).

The first 2 floor are mainly camera and mobile phones whereas at the upper 3 floors you find everything and anything concerning computers, notebooks etc.
Most shops have A4-sheets with the price list so it’s best to collect some of them and compare prices.
