This was brilliant! Enjoyed the short course on how to make pewter plate. Wife and I both enjoyed it, had good fun. Even got to the the plate's with us and an apron to go with it! Have some fab photos of us there. A lot history and proud people who run/work at place.

Our party of 6 LOVED our visit to Royal Selangor. Our guide was like a Walking Encyclopedia, and really interesting to listen to.
The whole visit was a surprise, and has given me a huge appreciation for the skills of the craftsmen and women who create Selangor pewter.
I would highly recommend this visit.

It was a very hot and dry day, the shade and watching the fountain at play was very enjoyable. You can see the Petronas Twin Towers towering above as well as the other skyscrapers. It just adds to the value of such a green space. The walk to the KLCC Convention Centre is short and interesting.

We ended up there in a tour we took with Heritage Malaysian Walks, as a stop before Batu caves.
It felt a touristic stop to make us buy pewter stuff...they put a sticker in everyone and I assume was to give the guide a comision in case you buy something. Not factory prices here...everything is very expensive!
Interesting, but not a must...and we didn't buy the story that everything is handmade nowadays.
