Gallery Old Town in Ipoh is one of a kind on its own. Basic, unaltered and intertwined with nature, the gallery is set up in a previously abandoned house. The roots are finding their ways into the house through any opening – through the roof or climbing along the walls, but all of that create a yearning for the yesteryear. Even the musty smell is acceptable in here.
The gallery’s reception counter.
Adjacent to the gallery is a hotel still under renovation. I am guessing it’s a hotel for flash packers with the quadruple beds and a lovely common area on the roof top.
The gallery is not visible on the main road. You have to walk through a lane that’s next to Kong Heng kopitiam. If you can find Kong Heng, you can find the gallery.
The gallery is open on saturday, sunday and public holidays, 9am – 5.30pm.
There seemed to be more renovation going on next to the gallery, all fenced up with iron fencing. I am curious at what is to come next and I look forward to coming back here to explore more! Enjoy more photos below.
