It was a wonderful experience. The host have done very good job explaining the batik making process from the beginning and answering all our questions. The host is also very patient with us with “no talent” in batik making. We had good time and ended up bringing back very nice batik painted by ourselves! Don’t forget to buy some souvenirs too. We were lucky to purchase some very high quality batik attires with great discounts.

Colin and his team is so friendly and helpful to proceed each process. These are not complicated but a little tips help to improve the quality greatly. Colin and staff also teach me The Batik history a little. Moreover i could get my work as nice souvenir. I strongly recommend this tour to get good experience of Malaysia.
