Description

Depart from Kuala Lumpur at your chosen time (09:00 - 09:45 or 14:00 - 14:45) and the trip towards Batu Caves, stopping at Little India and the Brickfields neighborhood, known for its colorful streets and unique shops. After a 30-minute scenic drive, arrive at the Batu Caves to explore the home of Hindu shrines and various religious deities. Listen as your guide explains the Hindu roots of the nation and climbs the 272 steps to the golden statue of Lord Murugan. Once at the top, go to Cathedral Cave to see the largest cave in the complex, and hear about the background to this most intricate of Hindu shrines.Then, drive to Thean Hou Temple, a 6-tiered pagoda temple atop Robson Heights. Completed in 1987 and officially opened in 1989, it was built by the Hainanese community of Kuala Lumpur and is dedicated to the goddess Tian Hou (The Heavenly Mother).Continue to China Town to enter the site of dozens of restaurants and food stalls tended by Chinese, Indian, Malay, and Bangladeshi traders. Watch as they serve up local favorites, such as curry noodles, Hokkien Mee (Fujian noodle dish), Ikan Bakar (barbecued fish), and Asam Laksa (a sour, fish and tamarind-based soup).Next, see the stunning National Mosque of Malaysia (Masjid Negara), set in 13 acres of beautiful gardens. Appreciate the bold approach taken by its architects who designed it in the late 1950s as a symbol of the aspirations of the newly independent nation. Benefit from a hotel drop-off at the end of the tour services.
