View Of Ipoh From 21st Floor Majestic Tower, Ipoh.

My sister-in-law, family and friends were on holiday and they made a stop in Ipoh to spend a night at the Ipoh Majestic Homestay. Before they check out the next morning, we dropped by to visit them. They enjoyed their stay at one of the apartments on the 15th floor. The apartment is new, clean and fully furnished.

We were then taken to the top floor (21st floor). Here the occupants can rent the whole place for holding parties or functions. Its a pity we didn't get to see Ipoh lighted up with the night lights but the day view was equally beautiful. For Ipohites, we can easily identify the different landmarks. Sit back and enjoy an overview of Ipoh city from the 21st floor of Majestic Tower.

Happy are those who are strong in the Lord,

who want above all else to follow your steps.

When they walk through the Valley of Weeping,

it will become a place of springs where pools of blessing

and refreshment collect after rains!

(Psalm 84:5-6. The Living Bible-TLB)
Majestic Tower behind this row of old building. I know this photo doesn't do justice to the towering Majestic building. This snapshot was taken from a moving car.

  7. I have never seen Ipoh this way! So many different sections! And each so different! The large new building is so unusual! Is it offices in there? And I also bet that many of these buildings are restaurants! Ipoh must have hundreds!
