With your guide, explore the showrooms and art galleries to learn about this interesting aspect of the country's art and culture.
Finally, visit the Eagle Square (Dataran Lang), one of the city's most-recognized landmarks. Admire this nearly 40-feet tall (12 meters) statue of an eagle prepared to take flight and its postcard-worthy surroundings of miniature fountains, terraces and bridges.
Before being dropped off at your hotel at the end of the tour, make a stop at the duty-free Kuah Town for some souvenir shopping.
Worth doing if you like to know the history of Mahsuri. Village is setup ok, but a some parts were still under construction. The house/huts were very interesting. Guide was alright and friendly and even dropped us off at another location. However, not sure if the price is the best as it was $35USD.
