What to expect

Spend the morning attempting to master the intricate art of batik, a style of dying and painting that is found in various countries including Malaysia. At this workshop, you can experience how to create hand-drawn batik from scratch. Improve your sketching skills as you will be taught to sketch the design on a piece of oh plain cloth. As guests need to take back the batik on the same day, it can be done by drying the batik without fixing the color.

After that you will go to Chinatown (Petaling Street), where you can shop for anything from attires, watches, shoes, handbags and lots of other merchandise, the true allure of this night market is in wandering about and enjoying its sights, sounds and energy. Chinese and seafood restaurants, as well as hawker stalls, can be found along its many alleyways, resulting in an interesting mixture of aroma filling the air that’s almost impossible to resist.
