Full description
Enjoy a trip to the countryside, stopping at interesting factories and visiting the incredible Batu Caves. Begin your journey with a pickup at your Kuala Lumpur hotel. You will be taken to experience the outskirts of the city along the ‘Ambassador Row’, Istana Sharif Ali, and Malay Villages.

Stop at the Royal Selangor Pewter, the largest and most modern pewter factory in the world, reputed internationally for its high quality and craftsmanship. You will see the different processes, such as casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering, and engraving. Next, visit a batik factory to see how batik is designed and printed.

The last stop will be at the limestone hills of Batu Caves that comprises three caverns and several smaller caves. Pass a towering statue of Lord Murugan as you climb 272 steps into a cave shrine and follow vivid murals that bring scenes from Hindu scripture to life. 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. This tour concludes with drop-off at your Kuala Lumpur hotel.
