    INTERESTED PLACED IN KUALA LUMPUR
    Very Recommended to everyone ! Why? Its an amazing place to explore and gain a lot of information about Malaysia Art Culture. Not just look around and buy the product , but you can also try and apply the art by your own . You need to spend a lot of time when coming this Craft Complex because the area is quite large, there are few blocks that you need to visit especially the Museum. The building is very comfortable to survey on the inside as it is equipped with various infrastructures such as air conditioning, unique seats, coffee machines and others...Chiaw..Dont forget make sure you must come this place once at least on your life.

    Visit to the craft complex
    This place is beautiful because of its architecture which preserves Malay and traditional architecture. Less attraction other than a place to shop for original handmade. Bland dining from table setting to food and beverage sales.

    Interesting gallery and shop that is totally wheelchair-friendly.
    Highly recommended. We had the good fortune to visit during a major exhibition (late-Feb - early-March). There were numerous stalls selling a wide variety of craft items from across the country and plenty of local food stalls. Even outside of major events it is an interesting destination in its own right with an informative museum and excellent shop. Entry is free and the great thing from a personal perspective is that the whole place is wheelchair friendly ♿ .

I have been to many craft centers around the world, and this is one of the best. The architecture of the building is very appropriate. The show rooms are well laid out with great presentation and lighting and very good air conditioning. The people are friendly and very low pressure. You will find excellent traditional textiles such as sarongs bags and men’s shirts , silver smithing, rattan, weaving clothing for men and women and kids, there’s also a excellent museum highlighting the best craft people in Malaysia with interactive hands-on experiences.

This attraction is highly promoted but I was very disappointed. It appears that at least half the stores have already closed down and I imagine the remaining businesses won't be around much longer either. No bargains here and nothing you won't find in other stores.

Handicraft on display and for sale, not so great.

The best bit was Batik Conlay where two ladies (who were gems) offered batik painting for RM15. Designs were pre-waxed onto cloth and you were able to mix and match and paint your own cloth. It was amazing, so great we went back the next day and did two more. They had a variety of designs from panoramic views of KL Twin Towers, under the sea, flowers, birds, owls, you name it, they had it (and yes, even Angry Birds!).

The ladies will even mount them on black/white card frames for a nominal cost. If you had the intention to sew your square painted motifs onto quilts, they will even treat the cloth for you, also for a small fee.

It was great!! Friends and I have made it a vow to return there before the end of the year to paint batik for Christmas presents.

I took a guided city tour and it was a joy to come to this craft complex which you can specifically know everything about this complex design.

Starting from the top of the building, the roof take a form of Malay traditional house which some wood carving that represent the house is own by a well known or important person like a judge or lawyer or a chief of the village on that time. On the wall on the building side has some wood carving with a great and beatiful carving.

From outeries, the bull cart used as one of the transportation mode. The "Tempayan" people use to wash their feet before entering houses. The "Labu Sayong" is a vase with special shape use to comparting a water, it can keep the water level low and and safe to drink. The "Wakaf" or a resting hut. At the right corner of the bulding also a "Keliring" one of the burial mode used on that time.

The muse was comfortable and well designed. Retail was way over priced
Crafts were appropriate opportunities for children You want the real PRI experience, try the National Textile Museum and shop on the street where the Coliseum Cinaplex and Restaurant is located.

An oasis of calm in the chaos that is KL!

Well worth a visit. Lots of talented people working on their various crafts who are happy to share their knowledge with you or just let you watch them work. Usual gift shops etc and a cafe.

Our highlight was spending an hour with a lovely man called Lazim who showed us how to do Batik and let us have a go ourselves. Kids will love it especially but so will adults. Lazim's passion for his craft is infectious!

We came away with a very personal souvenir we had made ourselves and some happy memories.

Billed as a complex with a range of crafts people where you can interact as well as high quality craft shop this was a real waste of time for us. Only two Batik workshops open. Gallery closed as were all other workshops. Poor looking cafe.
Nothing on web site to warn that might be issues as clearly had been major exhibition that finished a week before and still being cleared. Essentially a retail outlet and though we did indulge better quality wares seen elsewhere.
A real need to get accessible info up to date and accurate. The hop on hop off buses were still giving spiel the next day and I would have been very unhappy to get off on that basis and find nothing but an upmarket shop.
Think this may be first one star I have given anywhere in Asia and if no stars possible our trip here would have merited this.
