Mydin Mall Meru Raya is close to MAPS Ipoh (Movie Animation Park Studios) – which is a theme park in Ipoh.

Note: MAPS is officially closed

And it is walking distance to Terminal Amanjaya (bus station).

The mall is a bit shabby in places (especially the toilets) but you can buy a lot of things (notably cheaper groceries in bulk) here while your kids hang out at the playing zone.

But if you are in this area and need something in a hurry, this mall should have it. Or something similar as there a great deal of different stores in this mall!

Conclusion

It’s true that Ipoh shopping malls are not the main draw of Ipoh. Personally, our go-to malls are Ipoh Parade and AEON Kinta City.

But a trip to any of these malls is a good way to chill out in an air-conditioned environment while you formulate your next battle plan to check out food, dim sum, biscuits, and white coffee in Ipoh.

As for the non-shopaholics in your group, there is the option of going to a spa instead! There are many massage spa centers in Ipoh to choose from.
