Another thing in my 'must do' lists is the Sunday morning 'Memory Lane' visit. This Ipoh flea market has everything for everyone.You can find antiques like old coins, old currencies,old books, vases, old and vintage camera.WW2 items being sold here (one antique seller I saw had a WW2 soldier's metal cap for sale).

Second hand items are aplenty even sports rim, fans, turntables, computers can be found here.Bundle t-shirts, jeans, jackets and shirts are many.There’s also this mid-aged Chinese man who sells fighting fish (& other lesser known fish species) in bottles. The cheapest fighting fishes used to be like RM2.Business here starts as early as (maybe) after dawn and ends at noon.

My favorite spots are the stalls selling old and vintage camera. I would usually go for imported ones since they are scarce here. So far I have bought 2 diana clone camera, 3 polaroid and 2 zenit slr camera. Prices of 2nd.hand camera are 1/2 or 1/4 priced but still negotiable.There are also stalls selling drinks, mee soup etc in case one gets hungry.There’s one stall selling ‘jam Tsunami’ where the seller would immerse the watches in water to prove they (the watches) still can function after the immersion.Besides the locals, tourist or foreign workers frequent this place.
