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.

When I signed up for this tour, I thought that the caves were the only thing worth seeing, and the other two stops were just filler. I was so wrong. I knew nothing about pewter, but the factory tour was incredible and I fell completely in love with the little pewter goblets that they served us 100 plus in for those not aware, think gatorade. I had to buy some. The batik factory was also amazing. In the US we only ever get machine printed fabric, and seeing and buying the hand-painted real thing was the highlight of my time in Malaysia.

When it came to the actual caves, they are gorgeous. The monkeys are incredibly photogenic. Though I'm not a Hindu, the caves feel very spiritual.
