The hidden gem of rusticity

IPOH (Sin Chew Daily) -- No prominent signs. Utterly simplistic and no-frills design but exuding irresistible old world charms.

Tucked in a quiet corner of the bustling Old Town teeming with shops selling Ipoh's local specialties, Sekeping Kong Heng is a gem in the former tin-mining town.

Voted one of the top ten industrial-chic hotels and hostels in the world by The Guardian last April, Sekeping Kong Heng is easy to find, being located just behind the time-honored Kong Heng Cafe beside Plan B.

No breakfast will be provided for guests. Who wants hotel breakfast when you are pampered with a good selection of shredded chicken hor fun and Ipoh's legendary white coffee just a few steps away?

Sekeping is particularly popular among Singaporeans who make up almost half of all its guests, followed by tourists from Greater China and the West.
