Batty Batu!

The Batu caves


We’re winding down our whirlwind tour of KL and we managed to hit up almost everything in 10 hours (in this order):

  1. Batu Caves
  2. Old Railway Station
  3. National Mosque
  4. Sri Mahamariamman Temple
  5. Chinatown
  6. Merdeka Square
  7. Little India
  8. Golden Triangle
  9. KLCC Park
  10. Petronas Towers
  11. Kuala Lumpur Tower

Some highlights in Kuala Lumpur before we hit the sack and board our early morning flight to Bali (Bali!!!!). I highly suggest you pay particular attention to the Batu Caves if you ever find yourself in the area. Other highlights include the Petronas Towers, the Kuala Lumpur Tower and the National Mosque. 

If I could compare, Kuala Lumpur is like a similarly aged but more reserved and more mature version of Bangkok. If anything it’s more of a city to live in rather than a vacationing spot.


I thought I left this stuff back in NYC

The Petronas Towers just got served

The Batu Caves and the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world just got served.

Badass monkey

Inside the caves

National Mosque.

Final resting place of the last 3 prime ministers of Malaysia

Then we got caught in an intense thunderstorm

Chinese market filled with useless things

- At time of posting in Kuala Lumpur, it was 80.6 °F -

Humidity: 94% | Wind Speed: 2km/hr | Cloud Cover: few clouds

Malaysia in a Nutshell
Kuala Lumpur


  1. oops! I meant to write Lord Murugan. Lonely Planet mispelled it as Murga! That’s ignorance right there.

  2. What’s Murga?
