“A good experience”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Located not far away from the airport, it's worth a visit.
A woman welcome you on the door and as first thing show you how they paint cloths. It's really interesting.
Inside the big shop provides many art crafts some interesting some less. Everything is pretty expensive but the quality is high so I guess things are worth the price.
If you wanna have a great experience with just 30RM you can buy your own piece of cloth and paint it following the rules of the local "artists". It's a good memory to take home.

“OK - but more or less jut a big shop of handicrafts!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

It´s a lot better than the "Pansig Art Village" wich is just a 100 sqm. shop! This is bigger and they have some nice clothes and so on. The batik "show" is not worth the while, and is more or less just a task they do to sell more goods. Worth half an hour of your time.

“waste of time, unless if you really wanna spend a lot of money on their products...”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

it is located a bit off from pantai chenang, so u can easily reach it from there by car. once there, i expected some hands-on on batik making or some DIY by myself. however, these are only available at langkawi crafts complex, that sadly i had no time to go to. basically here, they are just displaying their goods for sale, at exorbitant prices. please go here if u want to buy a piece of silk batik at rm300-800 prices. the staff was very irritated with our presence there, to say the least, and in less than 15 minutes i was out of there, irritated as well to have wasted my time. definitely a no-no!!

“An interesting hour but a bit salesy”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We were returning from the Craft Village in a taxi when the driver suggested we should stop off at this place. Although wary, we agreed and he pulled in. We were met by the owner and shown into the batik studio were we watched workers applying the die and listened to an explanation of how it is done although we were not allowed to 'have a go' as it is basically a commercial enterprise. We were then shown into their shop where they had all manner of souvenirs and clothing for sale - not all batik products by any means. The complex was shared by one or two food and beverage outlets.

“Pleasant place”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We went to Atma Alam in the hopes of being able to create our own batiks, however we were informed that we were unable to. The woman who attended to us and showed us around was relatively informative but she seemed a bit irritated by our presence and questions. Inside the shop there are all kinds of things to buy and see in batik style which was quite impressive but expensive!
