After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, embark on your cultural exploration of Malaysia beginning with a short drive through this region's official Little India in Brickfields. What used to be a simple residential neighborhood just outside of Kuala Lumpur has now been transformed into a colorful community with streets lined with quaint shops and mom-and-pop restaurants.

A short 30-minute drive later, arrive at Batu Caves, a massive limestone outcrop with interiors housing a Hindu shrine lined with different deities. Before climbing the 272 steps up into the high caverns, marvel at the impressive golden structure of Lord Murugan, standing tall at 140 feet (43 meters). On the way up, be greeted by mischievous little monkeys.

Upon arrival at the top of the steps, enter the Cathedral Cave, the biggest cave of the complex featuring a high ceiling and ornate Hindu shrines. Explore the cave complex with your guide and learn about the history and cultural significance of its various features.

Then make a stop at a local batik center and discover how this popular Malaysian fabric is designed and printed. Before returning to your hotel, visit the Royal Selangor Visitor Center to gain insight on pewter smithing and innovative pewter-ware design.

5Oct14 - Good Deed from Driver Muklis - I booked ourselves a Batu Cave Tour via Viator Malaysia and on the day of the tour on 4Oct14 for some reasons I forgot my backpack when we were dropped off at 5pm at our condominium Marc Residence at KLCC. The backpack contains my mini iPad and a bunch of important stuffs. I only found out about my lost backpack when I wanted to use my mini iPod sometime 9pm. I was already resigned of the lost, but, took a chance to call the tour provider of Viator who luckily I still have their SMS number (+60193147691). After about an hour of text messages I was assured by the tour provider that the driver MUKLIS shall drop by our condo today 5Oct14 at 8:10am. As scheduled Driver MUKLIS arrived with my backpack. Thank you very much MUKLIS and to the tour provider of VIATOR a certain BEE thank you for the assistance. ‪#‎viator‬ ‪#‎visitmalaysia2014‬ ‪#‎good deed‬

Guides knowledgeable and accomodating.The Caves Gallery and Diety history inside the lower cave system is a must-do for those that find the 270+steps to the higher cave not to their liking.There is a small Restaurant near the bus parking area that does great Roti canai and the owner gives a fascinating tea making demonstration on request by the tour guide

From $28.56
