Tambun Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 6 photos

Malaysian Art
Tambun Caves is situated at Tambun of Ipoh in the state of Perak. Perhaps Malaysian archeologist did not provide enough details so that some sources said it was 5,000 year old paintings while some said 2,000 years. Anyway, it was discovered in 1959.

How to get there?
Caves visit are not suitable for luxurious tourists, the caves has to remain as original as possible for visitors to see the original view. Do not expect air-con or elevator. The staircase is probably equivalent to 5 storey buildings while mosquitoes are wild. Anyway, the location has to start from Ipoh highway entrance. Once you entered, you should be able to notice signboard to Tambun. The caves signboard was surprisingly small, hard to get. Make sure you ask local residents for direction. The distance is approximately 10km out of Ipoh city centre, so try to use your own sense, don’t over drive.
