Key Highlights

  • Enter a Hindu temple hidden in the depths of a natural limestone cave
  • Admire the finely crafted textiles and pewter products of the Kuala Lumpur region
  • Overview


    On the fringes of Kuala Lumpur are located some of its famous landmarks. The Royal Selangor Pewter Factory is world-famous for its beautiful pewter products made of tin, copper and antimony. The factory finds also mention in the Guinness Book of Records for producing a tankard 6.5 feet high with a capacity of 4920 pints! Grab a few products from the retail shop as souvenirs. A tour of the Batik Factory can be a great learning experience to see how local batik, the art of decorating cloth with wax and dye to create wonderful colours and patterns, is made.

    The renowned limestone hills of Batu Caves, north of Kuala Lumpur, attract thousands of devotees every year during the annual Thaipusam festival. Walk up 272 steps to the Cathedral Cave, which houses Hindu deities beneath a 100 metre ceiling. Climb the Batu Caves, 272 steps to the shrine of Hindu Lord Murugan, visited by over a million pilgrims every year on the annual Thaipusam festival. Enjoy a surreal experience in one of the natural limestone caverns as light filters in from above.

    • Fantastic Tour Guide

      We arranged a private city sightseeing tour. Booking the tour and further communications were excellent. We could spend as little or as much time as we wanted at each site....
