Full description
Following pick-up, begin your day on the city outskirts along the Ambassador Row, Istana Sharif Ali and Malay villages.

Stop at the Royal Selangor, which features the largest and most modern pewter factory in the world. It is also world-renowned for its high quality and craftmanship. On your factory tour, learn about the different processes at this factory such as casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering and engraving. Next, stop at Batik Factory to see how batik is designed and printed.

For your last stop, head to the limestone hills of the Batu Caves, comprised of 3 caverns and several smaller caves. Pass a towering statue of Lord Murgan as you climb 272 steps into a cave shrine, and follow vivid murals of Hindu scripture. Spot the macaques that live on the lush cliff face, and join a crowd of Hindu pilgrims on their way to a series of gilded altars.
