BATIK ART VILLAGE AT ATMA ALAM
Held in a traditional Malay building with a high, sweeping roof, the slots at the batik workshops here usually fill up quickly, so be sure to call up in advance to check on availability. There’s also a café that serves homemade cakes, cookies and coffee if you need a pick-me up.
