The ETS Taiping to Ipoh train is by far the quickest way to travel between these two places in Perak state with 12 services a day making the journey in around 45 minutes and tickets cost between 20 and 24 MYR.
The big advantage of taking a train against taking a bus is that the railway stations in both places are conveniently located within walking distance of the centre of town.
If you take a bus from Taiping to Ipoh you will first have to take a bus from Taiping town centre to Kamunting bus terminal (6 km away), then take a bus from Kamunting to Aman Jaya bus terminal in Ipoh (10 km away from Ipoh Old Town), then take another bus from Anam Jaya to Medan Kidd (located on the edge of the Old Town 5 minutes walk away from Ipoh train station).
If you take the train, you can walk from the railway station to most parts of the Old Town in 5 to 10 minutes.
So if you don't want to spend many hours travelling and waiting for buses, the train is easily the best travel option.
