Batu Caves & City Tour
- Half Day
After climbing the 272 steps that lead to the Sanctuary of Murugan, one of the most revered deities of Hinduism, enjoy splendid panorama views of the city. It is also possible to find monkeys in constant search for food so be alert! These impressive caves remain a destination for pilgrims, especially during the most important Hindu festival in Asia, Thaipusam, which is celebrated during the full moon Tamil month (January and February).

Return to the city and start the city tour of Kuala Lumpur. The tour will allow you to visit the colourful and unique Buddhist temple of Thean Hou and then walk through the lush lake with its tropical nature and stop in front of the modern National Mosque and the old train station built by the British. From here, arrive at the Independence Square, the center of the old Kuala Lumpur, born in the 19th century around the tin mines. Continue with a walking tour to discover the streets of the ancient city surrounded by small typical buildings of colonial / Malay style and the shops of the Central Market and the Chinatown where there is also the colourful Hindu temple of Sri Mahamariamman. Then, head to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers to take pictures of this marvel of technology before returning to the hotel.
