COUNTRY SIDE & BATU CAVES TOUR

The Country & Batu Caves Tour takes you on a 3-hours journey towards the eastern suburb of Kuala Lumpur. Highlights of this excursion includes visit to Royal Selangor Pewter Factory where you will marvel at the art of pewter crafting demonstrations and the Batik Centre where you will witness how wax and dye are used in the batik painting process. Lastly, ascend 272 steps to the limestone Batu Caves Temple where its cavernous interior is home to Hindu deities.

Firstly, you’ll head to the Royal Selangor Pewter Factory. Royal Selangor is a powerhouse known throughout the world for their expertise in making quality pewters. The story of how it all started goes way back in 1885 when a young chap by the name Yong Koon Seong. He travelled all the way from Shantou, China to Malaya and eventually became a pewtersmith in Kuala Lumpur, and the legacy of his craftsmanship lives on till today. Walking into the pewter factory, you will find that the skilled craftsmen at work are no short of focus and meticulousness. You will be amazed by its detailed metalworking process involved in working with the pewter from casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering and to engraving it. The craftsmen truly take pride in their artistry. It’s no wonder that Royal Selangor offers some of the most intricate and gorgeous pewter pieces in its stores. If you’re feeling fancy and want to splurge, maybe you can consider getting some souvenirs there.

Moving on, you’ll make a quick stop at a local Batik Centre en route to Batu Caves. Upon entrance, you will be exposed to a batik-painting technique done by the local experts called ‘canting’ – in which plant and flower motifs are hand-drawn onto a piece of plain white silk or cotton using a canting pen filled with candle wax. It is here where you will see how the artisans print the batik designs onto exotic materials to create aesthetically patterned materials that are made into scarves, sarongs, pareos, blouses, dresses, etc. Then learn how the batik sarong can be fashioned in a variety of ways, which includes as beachwear and fashion accessory. Take a stroll around the shop and admire the batik items ranging from scarves, clothing, paintings, accessories and decorative ornaments before you make way to the tour’s final attraction site – Batu Caves, Selangor.

Upon arriving the legendary Batu Caves in Gombak, you will find this popular place of worship for the Hindu devotees packed with tourists (and fat pigeons). The Batu Caves is said to be built with a series of limestone caves that are over 400 million years old, now that’s ancient. The massive golden statue of Lord Muruga guards the entrance of the main cave glints ethereally against the cloudy sky. Going up the stairs, you may catch sight of some monkeys, so hold tight to your belongings! You will have to climb 272 steps up to reach the main cave. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt to stop a few times along the way to catch your breath, so take it easy! On the way up is the entrance to the Dark Cave – popular for its amazing rock formations formed over thousands of years. When you finally reach the top (hooray!), you are promised a breath-taking sight that makes the climb all worth it. As you make your descent from the cave’s mouth, enjoy the gorgeous panorama. Once you have descended, take another breather before heading back to the city where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
