Our little one was very sick during our trip to Malaysia so, we decided to at least visit the attractions that were relatively near. Two destinations came to mind: Batu Caves and Petronas Towers.
Direction from KL Sentral to Batu Caves
The train line going to Batu is very comprehensive: at the KL Sentral Station, head to KTM Komuter Train and wait at the platform of the train going to Perlabuhan Klang (Port Klang) – Batu Caves line. Fare is just 2.00 RM (one-way).
When you arrive in Batu Caves Station, you can see right away the Statue of Lord Murugan which serves as the prominent landmark of this place.
One, two, three… there are lots of monkeys in the place. They can be attracted to your camera or food, so be careful of your stuff.

Our attempt to climb 272 steps to reach the Temple Cave. We’ll we had to let it go at that time since the little Mr. was not feeling better.

Mr. Yellow was very supportive of his son (he must have enjoyed feeding the birds too)!

We had the train all for ourselves going back to KL. How about some wacky shots?
We visited Petronas Twin Towers on a different day since we cannot linger outside for too long. But, our suggestion for first time travelers is to go straight here after visiting Batu Caves since you’ll be going back to KL Sentral anyway.

There were of course plenty of people around the area waiting for the towers to be fully lit up at night
Someone was very happy playing with these water sprinklers
Killing time while we wait to see the towers in its glorious state at night
Finally, the waiting time was over. The towers were now fully lit up!
