Begin your guided afternoon tour with a drive through Ambassadorsí Row along Kuala Lumpurís historic Ampang Road. Get a feel for the Malaysian suburban and rural lifestyle as you travel through a region known as an affluent residential area mainly populated by foreign diplomats and expatriates.

You first stop is the internationally renowned Royal Selangor Pewter Factory. Discover the artful process of fine pewter crafting, from its beginning as refined tin, antimony, and copper, to its end as pitchers, candelabras, and countless other beautiful objects. Moving on, youíll proceed to Gombak to experience the ancient process of batik design. This wax-resist dyeing technique is thought to be over 1,000 years old, and is coveted for the ornate and intricate designs it produces.

Arriving at Batu Caves, gaze up at its grand entrance gate and the 272 stairs that lead up to the caves. The massive limestone outcropping and its cavernous interiors are said to be home to Hindu deities, and consist of three main caves with a number of smaller chambers. Once inside the cool interior, wander these impressive structures. The most well-known, the Temple or Cathedral Cave, houses several shrines. Tilt back your head to view the vaulted ceiling that soars some 330 feet (100 m) above.
