There is a museum, souvenir shop, Malay restaurant, batik painting center & a few local architecture building in the complex. Must try to make your own batik during visiting to this complex & enjoy the ULAM rice

You can get a great lunch here. Great tasting local food with local price. Do expect crowds during lunch time and typical trash habit of the locals.

Small room with a few traditional dresses, painted scarf and ceramic boxes. Ticket 4 rm. It took me 5 mins to see everything. On the territory 2 local cheap cafes good for break btw museums.

This is a small and inexpensive museum with a collection of royal clothes and a small selection of textiles and other handcrafts. The displays are well set put in the upstairs of a lovely old building.

Nice group of buildings, restaurants and souvenir shops, clean and welcoming. Museum we wanted to visit, but on seeing foreigners pay double price, we opted out

I would have thought that if the management had provided more structured programmes or avenues to showcase the various crafts that was housed there, it would have drawn a lot more interest from tourist to know more about these artisans. Nonetheless, its a good place...More

The compound may seem a bit artificial but it does give some insight into Malay architecture. Not too many shops were open the day we were there but it was nice nonetheless. We paid to go see the museum (a reasonable MYR 4). Small with...More
