We headed for Ipoh early in the morning, we got Indi up
early, taxied to the ferry terminal and boarded the boat to Butterworth on the

We journeyed into Malaysia, not quite knowing what to expect. The border crossing was extremely easy. And then all the roads changed and became smooth and signposted and they looked like English motorways. What a step up. We arrived in Ipoh because we are going to stop here before going to the nearby Cameron Highlands. We'd booked in advance and we regretted it. Ipoh was horrible! And strange. It was like a run down town, ...
