IPOH, July 24 — The drive will take you through housing estates and towards the limestone hill range that looms in the background. Make your way in from the car park and you will see a signboard indicating the place as a Buddhist centre, while an “Entrance” plaque hangs above what looks like a makeshift walkway where you will be waved in.
Just as you think entrance is free, you notice a wooden village house painted a striking green where someone is waiting out front to exchange your ringgit for admission tickets.
Confusing, random and eclectic — this pretty much sums up Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village, sandwiched between two famous cave temples (Sam Poh Tong and Kek Lok Tong) in Gunung Rapat, about 20 minutes from Ipoh. It has been pulling the crowds for about two years now and visitors have nicknamed it Little Guilin, after one of China’s most picturesque destinations.
Its name, after all, means Serene Village in Chinese and it meets all the requirements needed to be one, with limestone hills surrounding a striking green lake.
In essence, Qing Xin Ling is a nostalgic showcase that aims to capture the charming days of yore, set within a natural environment that is the pride of Ipoh. There are no major activities or landmarks; it is simply a place to relax and take in the view. What it does offer in spades though are photo opportunities, especially if you have a penchant for vintage aesthetics.
