EAGE-GSM 2nd Asia Pacific Meeting on Near Surface Geoscience & Engineering
This exciting Field Trip (26 April 2019) is being specially organized by GSM together with UKM lecturer (Dr. M. Hariri Arifin) and JMG Perak to bring out the best of Ipoh hoping to leave participants with happy memories.
Ipoh is the capital city of Malaysian state of Perak. Perak's finest colonial architecture stands side by side with rickety kedai kopi (coffee shops) in chameleonic Ipoh. The capital of Perak is flanked by towering white cliffs, some with magnificent cave temples pocketed in the limestone. Sliced into old and new towns by the Kinta River, Ipoh charms with its street art and street food – rather like a languid version of George Town.
