Usually I’m not much for the obligatory factory visits that are included in many guided tourist tours, but… This tour to the Royal Selangor Factory was really worth a visit. Not so much for the guided factory tour as for what you could buy in the shop; high quality nice looking objects in different styles and to reasonable price. If... More

Selangor Pewter has been producing quality pewter products since it was founded in 1885. A guided tour is the best way to understand the history and growth of the pewter industry. If you have the time, there is a workshop that teaches you to craft your own pewter dish. Fun and highly informative.

It is probably one of the tours we would not do unless it is part of the package. But it turns out to be a very interesting place to visit. I don't see this anywhere. It talks a little bit about history and they also engage with visitors by giving us a go with designing some glasses. We also get... More

I went with a friend to this place and was impressed with the guided tour of the history of Selangor Pewter. I learnt a lot about pewter making from the 30mins tour and there were just so many things that you could find made of pewter here from tea leaves containers to jewellery accessories. I also loved the food served... More

My friends and I spent a fantastic day with 3 girlfriends at Royal Selangor. We had a lovely guided tour which we followed up with an hour making jewelry in the "Foundry" and then to the "School of Hard knocks" making pewter bowls. Not only did we get to keep our jewelry and bowls, but we also came away with... More

Part workshop, part shop, part museum, the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre was designed to be both fun and educational. Royal Selangor is famous for its pewter, and the Visitor Centre tells Malaysia's story through the metal. The Centre provides free tours. Take them. If you have money with you, and especially if you are there with kids, attend their "School... More

On one of the tours, we were taken to the famous Royal Selangor factory where we visited the museum, had a chance to see the manufacturing process, and even had a go at handcrafting the pewter. Then we went to the gift shop and got a few beautiful pewter souvenirs.
