Excursions from Kuala Lumpur

Batu Caves

Take the train 13km north of the centre to the Batu Caves, a vast labyrinth of limestone chambers that are home to a spattering of Hindu shrines. A 43m-high statue of Lord Murugan guards the entrance to the main Temple Cave and 272 steps lead to the top. Time a visit during the annual Thaipusam Festival, when thousands of worshippers gather at the holy site.

Melaka

Less than two hours south of Kuala Lumpur lies the coastal city of Melaka (or Malacca) recognised by UNESCO for its historic riches. The city’s unique architecture bears the mark of Dutch, Portuguese and British empires while the characterful Chinatown district, on north bank of Melaka River, is a good starting point to explore the atmospheric backstreets.
