What you can expect

Take a half-day escape to the spiritual Batu Caves on this private tour. Climb the 272 steps carved into the sides of giant limestone cliffs to reach the Hindu temple at the top. Visit the Batik Centre to experience traditional Malaysian art and the Royal Selangor to see refined pewter products.

Begin your tour with a hotel pick-up by your private tour guide and travel to the vibrant Little India district. Discover the elegance of Indian culture through the colourful food stalls that sell everything from a variety of spices, to saris and golden trinkets.

Find serenity in the bustling city as you reach the 400-million-year-old limestone caves. Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims before you as you brave the steps to reach the summit of many Hindu shrines. On the way back down, take a few snapshots of the mischievous monkeys.

The next stop is at the Malaysian Batik Centre, where you can see authentic Batik fabric being designed and made into ready-to-wear materials, such as the traditional sarong. Before returning to Kuala Lumpur, stop at Royal Selangor Pewter Centre. Learn about the fine art of the Malaysian pewter industry and pick up some splendid souvenirs.

Note: Driver/guide may not able to accompany guests in climbing up the caves, narration will be given in any case.
