Travel: Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur
Updated: Aug 29, 2018
Finally! Hello there 'blog life'. Yey, I'm back! At this time, I'll post about my fashion, food and travel escapades and I'm excited to share it with all of you my sissy readers.
Ehem, so let's talk about my 'first'. My 'first' blog entry 'again' and my 'first' out of country escapades with my cray sister. We went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last September 17-21, 2015. We stayed in Bukit Bintang - a place where is easy to get from anywhere in Kuala Lumpur. So I suggested you to stay in Bukit Bintang. I know, this is a late post. But let me share what we experienced in Batu Caves in KL. This is the 'first' tourist spot we explored.
HOW TO GET TO BATU CAVES FROM BUKIT BINTANG:
1. Get to KL Monorail Line (it is the Green line in KL Train Map below).
2. Buy your ticket from Bukit Bintang station to KL Sentral Station.
Cost: 2.10 MYR -- 24.00 PHP
3. From KL Sentral station of KL Monorail Line, get to Port Klang Line to buy your ticket from KL Sentral to Batu Caves - Batu Caves is the last station of Port Klang Line (it is the Red line in KL Train Map below).
4. Once you're in KL Sentral station of Port Klang Line, go to Platform 3. It is down the stairs and you will see the "Batu Caves" sign and wait for the train.

Temple inside Batu Caves
- Bring bottled water. You will get dehydrated because of hot weather and going up to Batu Caves. You can buy bottled water and food in the place.
- Bring umbrella if you want. Why? Because first, hot weather and second, there's a lot of bats staying on the hanging wire. They're having their poo. *wink*
- Bring towel if you want. You will get sweaty.
- Don't wear or bring fancy things because there's a lot of monkeys playing in the area. They might get your things. They are some monkeys fighting so beware.
- Don't bring food when you're going up to Batu Caves. You're a big shinny banana in the eye of monkeys, unless you can manage the monkey to play/fight with you.
- Don't wear short shorts. There's a temple inside Batu Caves. (I know, I'm wearing a short shorts. Don't blame me, hahahaha! It's too hot and sunny. I brought my sarong and placed it in my waist when I went up). If you are going to wear short shorts, bring a sarong. But if you have no sarong, you can also borrow a sarong down the stairs before you go up. It is free!
