I visited Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village just before the Chinese New Year. The weather was hot at that time, but when entering the village, I felt much more comfortable and cool. It’s even a little cold when I hike up to Memory Lane which is sandwiched between 2 limestone cliffs. 

The overall experience was great. Nice setting and peaceful nature. It definitely deserves a spot in the list of my favourite Ipoh attractions.

In this post, I will share everything about Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village with pictures taken by myself.

2. Things to do inside Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village

Tour around the cultural village on a bicycle

This is the first time I ride this bike.

This is my favorite activity in Qing Xin Ling. You can take any bicycle you want to ride around. There are 3 types available: single bicycles, tandem bikes, as well as family bicycles. 

Pro tips: If you want to stop somewhere, always watch your bicycle, if not, people will just take it (that happened to me *sad*).
