Tour Description:

We will start off with a friendly meet and greet with our representative. We will then kick start our adventure by heading towards Bukit Chandan to visit the Keris Crafter. The keris is a unique traditional weapon used by warriors in the past and became a symbol of nobility and royalty. Witness the craft of making a keris by Pak Mazin, an expert with an extensive history from a young age. Pak Mazin still practices the traditional methods of producing and crafting the keris and Malays consider this a symbol of authority and strength. Pak Mazin’s work is highly sought after as the process of keris-making is lengthy and requires many stages.

Our next stop will be the Sultan Abdul Shah Gallery and Royal Museum. The Sultan Abdul Shah was formerly a royal palace, known as Istana Kota and Istana Hulu. Honouring the life of Sultan Azlan Shah, Perak’s 34th sultan, the hallways now boasts exhibitions of his life. A dashing mix of neoclassical, Renaissance and Moorish styles, explore the treasures and milestones of the royal family including a record-breaking 1.37m fungus as a state gift!

Before moving on to the next attraction, we will make a quick stop at Masjid Ubudiah and Istana Iskandariah for pictures. Masjid Ubudiah is Perak’s royal mosque; a beautiful sight with its majestic gold-domed construction. The Istana Iskandariah is not open to the public as it is the official residence of the Sultan of Perak, and can easily be described as the most attractive royal palace in the country. A feast for the eyes, the palace is an interesting mash up of art-deco architectural and Arab styles.

We will then proceed with our journey towards Sayong to learn about the process of Labu Sayong making. The town’s famous handicraft is made of clay and was traditionally used as a water storage container. It also has medicinal value. However, the Labu Sayong has also been designed just for decorative purposes today. With the help of a kiln, the Labu Sayong has to be burned at temperatures above 1,000 degrees Celcius for the right amount of time to not compromise its quality. These extraordinary classic handicrafts can be bought as souvenirs.

Sit back and relax as we board the Balai Gambang Cruise and enjoy the breeze blowing in your hair. Experience the beautiful scenery as we make our way along Perak River. Before we conclude our exploration, we will stop at a stall for some delicious laksa and cendol. Once you have fulfilled your cravings, our transport will be ready to transfer you back to our starting location.
