The buildings of Malaysian government agencies are almost identical, all black and white European-style buildings, of course, Singapore is the same. The construction of Yibao Railway Station is very beautiful. As for the railway service, as the tour guide elder brother said, what it was in the 1960s is what it is now.
Come to the sights of Ibaobi. The railway station is small, typical of European architecture, another representative of colonial culture. Colonialism is praised and disparaged. Although it is disgraceful to be colonized, it is also a kind of compensation to the local people that the colonists can make the colonies go from barbarism to civilization at once.
Ipoh, a small Malaysian city, is mainly inhabited by Chinese. The railway station is a dense European-style building, which can be reached by electric train from the central station of Kuala Lumpur, the capital. The carriages are similar to the domestic high-speed railway, clean and tidy, about three hours'journey. The tropical scenery along the way is also interesting. It also provides food and drinks for each person. The fare is not expensive. The terminal of the train is Beihai near Penang City. Ipoh is a midway station.
We arrived at Ipoh by EMU in Kuala Lumpur for about two hours. The Malaysian EMU was very good. Although the speed was slow, the carriage was clean, everyone had a share of food, and the air conditioning was cold. It was just that the seats were in the opposite direction, so it was a little unreasonable. Ipol Railway Station is not big, the whole appearance is white, a little British architectural style, the station facilities are relatively simple, ticket hall and some rest chairs and shops selling goods, basically no other service facilities.
Yibao Railway Station, a beautiful British building, is the landmark of Yibao. Construction started in 1914. There is a hotel on the second floor. It is said that the management is very bad now. It has not been confirmed. Typical Moorish architecture, let people stand at the door, you can feel the trace of history in Ipoh, from the heat of the ground, has been deeply imprinted on the heart.
Ipoh has recently been named one of the top ten tourist destinations in Asia, and Ipoh Railway Station is very colonial. It is one of the most beautiful buildings in the center of Ipoh City. But the facilities in the station are very poor, and there is a charge to go to the bathroom, and the train is very late.
The old building of the railway station looks good and big, but it's not big to walk in. Our train arrives about 2 hours from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur, but the train is 1.5 hours late. It's very nerve-racking. So if you are in a hurry, you should be careful. Such an unpredictable situation is common in Malaysia.
The railway station is beautiful and nobody checks in. But some people are waiting, so it's not interesting. Just shoot the building outside. The old city is really hot this season. Choose a time when it's not too hot at night. You can see a lot of graffiti. The old street is not big enough to be finished soon. There are also such amusing things as Erdai Lane.
Ipoh Railway Station is one of the oldest stations in Malaysia. It has a history of nearly 100 years. Like many ancient buildings in Malaysia, Ipol Railway Station is a mixture of Moorish and Victorian styles. It is pure white and noble. It is called the Taj Mahal of Ipoh.
