The limestone caves of Batu
From the main station KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur you can reach the caves fastest and very cheaply with the metro line “Port Klang – Batu Caves”. Arriving at the terminus, it is only a few minutes walk to the caves. The way there leads past numerous shops and a huge statue of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman. The Batu Caves are limestone caves about 15 kilometers north of Kuala Lumpur and are home to several Hindu temples. On the forecourt of the caves is the 42.7 meter high golden statue of Murugan. At her feet, 272 steep steps lead up to the main cave, which is about 100 metres high. With the relatively high humidity in Kuala Lumpur you can get a good sweat!
We found the caves relatively unspectacular. We actually liked the numerous macaque monkeysthat live on the hill around the limestone cave. 🙂
The aquarium “Aquaria KLCC”
From the Batu Caves we went back by metro to the station KL Sentral and from there we went to the Aquaria KLCC. The entry is 64 Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), which is about 14 €.
The Starbucks Cup of Kuala LumpurWe are collecting the Starbucks Mugs from the cities and islands we visit on our travels. Unfortunately, not every city that has a Starbucks store with an own mug. But if the city has an own mug we like to collect them as a souvenir. We only collect city mugs from the "Global Icon Series", which was released in 2008. You can see our complete collection here: Starbucks - Our collection of Mugs from the Global Icon Series
Kuala Lumpur has several Starbucks stores and also its own coffee cup 🙂
