Royal Selangor Pewter Factory Kuala Lumpur Reviews
Amazing souvenir products from Malaysian factory Dec 14, 2010
Royal Selangor is a pewter factory with a long tradition of manufacturing beautiful decoration and gift products from pewter, which is a tin alloy.
The factory is located about 20 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur’s city centre and has a visitor center next to the shop floor.
The visit at this factory was part of a guided city tour, which also brought us to places like Batu Caves.
At first I thought "Why do they take us to a factory??"
But after seeing the amazingly beautiful products which are handcrafted in that factory, I was really glad to be there.
I'm not sure if there was an entrance fee for the visitor center.
They have some demo workplaces, where you can watch the manufacturing process as well as trying for yourself.
In the visitor center, there are hundreds of nicely displayed exhibits of all sorts of pewter products, which are for sale.
If it weren't included in the city tour, I would never had dreamed of going there, but I think next time when I'm in KL I'll go there again! :-)
