Batu Caves, Royal Selangor & Batik Half-Day Tour


Find an excellent combination of highlights and attractions on a fun journey through the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. This tour gives you an introduction to wondrous natural sculptures and estates, quaint villages, cultural sites, and the rural lifestyle amid the city's beautiful suburbs.

A ride out from the city takes you to the lush countryside of the Klang Valley, home to a number of suburbs and monuments that illustrate Malaysia's traditions and modern world. At Batu Caves, admire the 140-foot-tall (42-m) statue of the Hindu god Murugan, as well as temple sites built into 3 limestone caves.

Learn the inner secrets of making pewter and batik, an ancient Malaysian form of wax painting, with a presentation that shows both the hand-drawn and block printing methods of the art. See how the expert artists transform a piece of white cloth into colorful and exquisite design material.

For another modern take on Malaysian tradition, you can visit Royal Selangor, a leading producer of fine pewter since 1885, for a guided tour. Marvel at the process of casting, molding, hammering, engraving and polishing, and see how raw materials are shaped into the most exquisite designs.

Before your tour ends, explore the famous roadway of Jalan Ampang and Embassy Row, where you can see the residences of ambassadors and highly desirable upmarket accommodations such as the Sharif Ali Palace.
