ATV Adventure Ride Park Kampung Kemensah from Kuala Lumpur

7 reviews
Feel the adrenaline rush and get out into nature with an off-road ATV ride in Kemensah, just outside the city. Zoom through the jungle to your choice of destinations: perhaps a 7-tier waterfall, perhaps the Sofea Jane Waterfall, perhaps the Klang Gates Dam, or perhaps a half-day thrill ride along rough terrain and river beds. Besides ATV tickets, your package includes door-to-door round-trip transfers from downtown Kuala Lumpur.

Beautiful outside, with interesting exhibits of textiles and jewelry inside. During my research some people were complaining the they were now charging an entrance few. It was 5 ringit - about $1.22US. I don't know of many museums that are that cheap.

Batik fabrics are used by many Asian people but the Malay have made it their national attire, there used to be a "Wear batik day" when men and women dressed in fabulous handpainted designs. The motifs vary by the techniques used - printing with hand held blocks, tye-dying or painting a figure outlined in wax on fabric. As the common global clothing is nowadays t-shirt and jeans these costumes have faded to history. This rather old fashioned museum also showcases bead embroidery sewn on slippers by Straits Chinese Nyonya and the seremonial jewellery worn and made by Sarawak people on Borneo. The cafeteria and shop no longer exist.

loved the experience and going to see not only textiles but jewelry and weaving. Lovely museum that was quite affordable. I also wish to point out the cafe and shopping area.

Nothing you can see here. Many doors are closed. Very dissapointed. You better see from outside only. 5 RM not worth at all

The museum was a delight! It was extremely well-laid out, with attention to detail and elaborate descriptions of Malaysian textiles and history. We loved the explanations of the process of Batik printing, and the extensive photos of actual Malaysian individuals dressed in the fabrics mentioned. The section on accessories on the upper floor was also lovely. At RM5, the entry was extremely reasonable too!
