Batu Caves

One of my favourite days in Kuala Lumpur was the day Lisa, Aaris and I visited the Batu Caves.

The Batu Caves are caves just outside of KL, you can take a train there and it takes less than an hour.

The caves are so amazing, they aren't any ordinary caves - they are the site of a Hindu Temple and monkeys, so many monkeys.













We also had lunch at caves, there was a lot of delicious vegetarian India restaurants, this was my lunch and it was AMAZING!
When we returned to Kuala Lumpur we did a bit more exploring and we came across this notice, this is what I love about travelling, stumbling across things you would never, ever see in New Zealand!Finally we finished off the day at the KL Towers (again) - Lisa and Aaris hadn't visited the towers at this stage and I was happy to go along again. You can also get a better idea of the scale of the towers from this photo that Aaris took.

Yay! I've been there! One of those monkeys mugged me for a packet of nuts I'd inadvertently left in my pocket and shared the life out of me! x
