Craft Complex (Kompleks Kraf Kuala Lumpur)

2.5 1

The Craft Complex has a rather sad air about it, as befits any grandiose project that only attracts a trickle of visitors each day.

In this case, a massive site has been turned over to the production and promotion of Malaysian handicrafts (for which read "Malay").

As well as various shops and boutiques, the complex has a museum, a craft village where interactive demonstrations are held, and most interestingly, an artists’ colony.

It’s certainly not an unpleasant place to potter round for an hour or two -- for any more than that, you would have to be obsessed with handicrafts.

It can be reached easily on foot from KLCC or Bukit Bintang, and is best combined with a visit to the nearby Heritage Centre.
