Cammal K's City Tips

  • Tropical weather. Best time to visit will be in May till September. Other months are ok as well but be prepared to experience some rain fall.
  • Tipping is not common when you dine at normal restaurants or coffee shops.
  • If you are in central KL, do travel with LRT (Light Rail Transportation) or Monorail which are traffic free and efficient.

    Batu Caves is a limestone hill riddled with caves. The main Cave is known as the Temple is accessed by a steep flight of 272 steps. The steps are thronged with troupes of greedy macaques who will harass you for food if you are carrying any (better not to feed them). The top of the stairs brings you into a massive cave with a high vaulted ceiling. The cave serves as a Hindu Temple devoted to Lord Muragan whose 42 meter high gold statue stands guard outside.
