During Chinese New Year, i spent about 4 days 3 night travel back to my parents hometown Kampar, and Ipoh also Penang for meet up some of friends. 4 days 3 night doesn’t playful enough for me, as rushing places all the way because traffic jam mar. 1st night i go visit Ipoh friends, then up to Penang the next day, reach penang around 7pm. What we done there just only photo shooting on Kek Lok Si Temple. And, we head back to Kampar on 3rd day. I think we have spent more than 5 hour travel back to Kampar that day. What i will cover in this post is last day, before i back to Kuala Lumpur, and this is ending of my CNY 4 days 3 night exclusive eat eat walk walk trip lol.
Actually Kampar not my hometown, just my parents from Kampar, and i used to stay Kampar when i was child. Kampar just a small town, which consist of few street, and it is peaceful compare with Kuala Lumpur. You can found 4 roll of unrenovated old style shophouse over this small town, and mini Japan garden at Kampar. Fully recommend for photo shooting such as model portrait or flora and fauna. Now, there is new kampar consist of new residential developments, and also university, Kampar hotel and also new commercial area. Lucky, it still connected with old kampar. You can found another version of photo here.
Some background of Kampar town which i grab from online:
Kampar is a town in the state of Perak, Malaysia. The town lies within the Kinta Valley, an area rich with tin reserves. It is situated due south of Simpang Pulai. It was a tin mining town which boomed during the heights of the tin mining industry. There used to be many tin mines on the outskirts of Kampar, but most have closed down following the collapse of the industry. Kampar was established in 1887.
The booms and busts of Kampar followed the vicissitudes of the mining industry. Most of them were established in the late 19th century, flourished in the 1900s, only to stagnate and decline after World War I, with the exception of an exhilarating boom in the 1920s.
This lake located the way back to Tapah, nearby a very small and peaceful town. I still remember many people who passby look forward to us, and though we’re those who capture speed trap lol.
