The Selangor Tourist Information Centre has recently been revamped to include a one-stop craft centre, known as Galeri Kraf Selangor.
Beautifully made by skilled local craftsmen and women, products retailed here include popular batik dresses, handwoven songket, mengkuang baskets and wood carvings. More craft products would be added to the gallery in due time.
This Selangor Craft Gallery is the brainchild of Selangor State Economic Planning Unit (UPEN), bringing together some of the top Selangor handicraft producers. I thought it was clever of them to set up their gallery underneath the Clock Tower at Dataran Shah Alam, opposite the Tourism Selangor building.
So whilst tourists seek further information on places of interest in Selangor, they could also take time to browse at local handicrafts, and purchase them at a reasonable price, either as keepsakes or souvenirs.
