Batik Art Vil­lage at Atma Alam

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

Padang Mat­sirat, near the Petronas petrol sta­tion, Langkawi (04 955 1227/www. at­maalam.com). While the vicin­ity around the air­port might strike you as rather iso­lated, Atma Alam is home to the Batik Art Vil­lage, where kids and par­ents can break out the wax and paints. Held in a sweep­ing high­roofed build­ing in­spired by tra­di­tional Malay ar­chi­tec­ture, the work­shops draw in droves of lo­cals and for­eign tourists, so make sure you call up in ad­vance to check for avail­abil­ity. There’s also a café that serves home­made cakes, cook­ies and cof­fee for those who want to re­lax while the oth­ers shop. Daily, 9am-6pm.
