Take a half-day adventure to the spiritual Batu Caves, just north of Kuala Lumpur, and climb the 272 steps carved into the sides of giant limestone cliffs to reach the Hindu temple at the summit. Visit the Batik Centre to experience traditional Malaysian cloth-dying, used as sarongs and fabric.

Your first stop is energetic Little India district, where you can discover the delicacies of Indian culture through the colourful food stalls and markets selling everything from saris to golden trinkets. From there, leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you head to the 400-million-year-old Batu Caves. Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims before you and brave the climb to reach a temple filled with Hindu shrines. On the way back down, snap a few photos of the mischievous monkeys looking to pick up treats from visitors.

On your way back to town, swing by the Malaysian Batik Center, where authentic batik fabric is designed and produced into ready-to-wear material, and look for unique pewter itemsat the Royal Selangor Pewter Center, where you see the world’s largest pewter company at work and can pick up some splendid souvenirs.

It was okay

Not what we expected however the batu caves was beautiful be prepared to climb up lots of stairs. Also our guide was informative but i think he got bored and started to talk about houses we went past that we could see. Which he didn't need to. This is 2 storey building... this is a 3 story building.. etc.

While the trip was well

organized and the guide was friendly and accommodating, too much was packed into a half-day tour. We visited three sites, spent 20 minutes at one site and 40-50 minutes at the two other sites. So, the entire experience was rushed and the tone was hectic. We were particularly disappointed because even though the trip was promoted as a visit to Batu Caves, this visit was tacked on at the end of a very hectic day. I recommend organizing a tour for those who only want to visit Batu Caves (where one can easily spend 3 hours) and more transparency in advertising this tour: stating that you will spend less than one hour at Batu Caves.
