Batu Caves

I haven’t updated my website in almost two months. Work has been incredibly busy in the lead up to my departure, so in order to relax I have been focusing on reading books instead of web-based stuff. The good news is, Seyla and I were able to take a much-needed break this week to Kuala Lumpur. We stayed for four nights at the Federal Hotel (I would only recommend this hotel for the location; music played right below us until midnight every night, the staff weren’t friendly, the room was outdated and the toilet was constantly on the verge of breaking) and spent our time sightseeing.

On Thursday we caught a monorail to KL Sentral and then after getting lost, we found our way to the train station to head to Batu Caves. The Batu Caves train station is SUPER close to Batu Caves, so I would recommend catching public transport to get there.

I have been to the caves a couple of times before, but it was a first for Seyla. He wasn’t a fan of the 272 steps, though given I am used to rickety steps in Cambodia, I found them quite pleasant. The monkeys are also much nicer than those you will find at Angkor Wat. That could be why I took more photo of them than the Hindu temple itself.
