Wizards and witches, we are sure that you know all about the famous Diagon Alley. Supposedly located in London, the entryway to enter the wizarding alley and shopping area is through Leaky Cauldron. Of course, all of the items on the Hogwarts supply list can be bought here! While shopping, you can always drop by Platform 9 & 1/2 for some good old butterbeer.

Recently opened on the famous Concubine Lane, Platform 9 & 1/2 has some other noteworthy neighbours including BookXcess situated at Kong Heng. This new Harry-Potter themed cafe is definitely a showstopper with the windowfront resembling Diagon Alley’s windowfront. With two bulging and curved windows accompanying the front door, this is the first Instagram spot in this cafe.

Staying true to Ipoh’s heritage area, it appears that Platform 9 & 1/2 retains some of the features of the heritage building. Nonetheless, there are still so many Harry Potter-themed spots! One of the most standout beverage would be butter brew float, or commonly know a butterbeer, a beverage enjoyed by wizards and witches. It is pretty tasty as it is made with butterscotch and whipped cream. Yums! 

A must-visit by wizards and witches
