Arriviing in Ipoh, you come to one of Malaysia's most beautiful old train stations - Ipoh Railway Station.
The Ipoh train station is located on the edge of the "Old Town" and is within an easy 10 minute walk of plenty of places to stay in the most interesting part of the city where you will find the majority of the tourist attractions.
Unlike ETS train tickets where it is advisable to book your seats in advance, KTM Komuter tickets are only sold on the day of departure.
Just turn up 10 or 15 minutes before the Komuter train is scheduled to depart from Taiping - buy your tickets from the station ticket counter, then take the next KTM Komuter train to Ipoh.
Unlike ETS trains where you are allocated a seat number when you buy a ticket, seating on KTM Komuter trains are on a first-come, first-served basis so you may have to stand for part or all of the journey during busy times of the day or holiday periods when carriages can be much busier.
If you want to gaurantee a seat, you will have to take the more expensive ETS train to Ipoh.
