Journey from PJ to Teluk Intan is about 1.5 - 2 hrs. I took the NKVE highway to Bidor before embarking on a 45-60 mins journey to Teluk Intan. That's the usual road to Teluk Intan as there's no direct approach from highway. So, as I slowly approached Teluk Intan, what I can see is a small town where simple and peaceful lifestyles set in. One can surely easily access all the roads in if you drive a few rounds in the small town. From far, you can view the famous tilted Clock Tower in the heart of the town itself.
Basically, there is not much place to visit here in Teluk Intan. But as this place is centrally located from Ipoh, Sitiawan, and Kampar, one can stay here for cheap and travel to other famous places in Perak. I went to Sitiawan to eat cheap and tasty seafood the first night I arrived. It was only a 45 mins drive if you are familiar with all the roads there. On the second day, I went to Kampar (30 mins drive) to try the famous locality, Curry Chicken Bread. The bread was huge and filled with paper-wrapped curry chicken. It was tasty but I would advise to have 4 persons at least, to finish off the bun. Otherwise, you would end up like me and my friend stuffing it till we burst!
From Kampar to Ipoh, it took us about another 30 mins to reach the Jaya Jusco Shopping Centre (formerly known as Kinta City).
Well, food in Teluk Intan was good but not to say excellent. However, it was definitely cheap! My personal recommendation would be the Ah Chai Rojak stall. The rojak was simply superb with the combination of local fruits (guava, jambu, pineapple, turnip, mango) and mix of kangkung and beansprouts with the speciality of cuttlefish plus the topping of grounded peanuts. Simply marvellous with the shrimp sauce they personally invented. Of course, Heong peang there is not to be missed and I bought quite a lot including other confectionaries which are also very crispy and fresh from oven. The laksa stall beside Anson Hotel is worth mentioning too, though it was not comparable to the Penang Laksa found in its origin state. On the other hand, the Mee Jawa is certainly the nicest I have tasted so far. Another speciality which I have yet to find it in other places is the Herbal Soup Steamboat, located in Coldstream. The soup was special but not tasty enough to attract my appetite. The rest of the ingredients were the same like any other steamboat ingredients.
All in all, Teluk Intan is a fun and cheap place to stay and eat in. One shouldn't miss the fresh seafood found there and local speciality, Heong Peang if you ever visit Teluk Intan.
- In a nutshell:Fabulous place for peace and non-extravagance retreat!
