Date: 16 March 2018

Time: 8.30 am – 5.00 pm

The day started with a short visit to Taman Merdeka and the Royal Crown Replica for some sightseeing and photography session. Next, the SIT students together with their UTM buddies and 4 Language Academy instructors went to Johor Bahru town for more sightseeing & lunch.  Some of them even did some personal shopping.

In the afternoon, the group made their move to the Johor Craft Complex . Here, they had the opportunity to produce their own batik painting from scratch. They were also presented with a gamelan performance. Before departing back to UTM, the students went to buy some batik-related souvenirs to bring back home.
