Very disappointed with this place, as one of the tourist spot, the management didn’t look after this place properly. How to attract tourist and show them our heritage if the place like that! Dirty and a mess! As a Malaysian living abroad and taking my foreign husband visiting this place it’s so embarrassing with the look of this place. Wake up people this is our heritage and our culture please show some decency and respect to our own heritage. I bet if they maintain this place with love and respect, more tourist will come here and appreciate our culture. If we as Malaysian don’t care our own heritage, who else will look after it and keep our culture and heritage alive in the eyes of others

Malaysian Batik ..experience it yourself ..

Everyone can do Batik ..If you are looking to experience at least once Batik art ..this is the place to be.

Batik artists here are always happy to share their batik techniques.

Learning Batik drawing & colouring is made simple here in their original setting & very reasonably priced - compared to else where.

If you have never tried & is tempted ..this is a good place to do Batik-Art!

We were recommended by some ex pat friends to go here and they were not wrong. Perfect place to enjoy Batik painting, creating a piece of local art to take home, simple, fun and enjoyable - very inexpensive. We spent about an hour doing this activity, suitable for anyone from about age 8 and any age adult. Lots of lovely local gifts to buy, in a very nicely presented, large shop. No haggling or any pressure. Almost empty when we went and air conditioned so, a welcome find.

This was my second visit to the Craft Complex. On my first visit there was a large exhibition of handicrafts. Today there was no exhibition just a sad collection of shops with some ordinary items that in no way represented the wealth of handicraft talent in Malaysia. In one shop the shop assistant was so busy cutting her nails with a nail clippers she didn't even know we were in the shop. In fact there were very few tourists around and no wonder. The museum had many exhibits closed and again was a very sleepy atmosphere. It was a very sad place and no one seemed genuinely interested to work there except for the man on the information desk and the women running the batik workshop. You can paint your own small batik drawing for 15RM and take it home. This was very a very relaxing activity. I would advise to only go to this kraft centre when exhibition is on otherwise it's not worth the effort. I left feeling very sad about this missed opportunity to highlight Malaysian handicrafts.
