I have wanted to visit the Hindu Temple at the Batu Cave complex for over 12 years now. It has just never been the right time and I will say it was definitely worth the wait. Here is some background info. The Batu Cave complex is located about 14km outside of Kuala Lumper Malaysia. It is a very easy train ride from KL Sentral Station where you are dropped directly in front of the Caves. The limestone caves are said to be about 400 million years old and were once used as shelter by the indigenous Temuan people. In 1878 a Hindu temple was dedicated to Lord Murugan within the caves.
We had a great time at the KL Bird Park. It is the largest open air aviary in the world with more than 3,000 local and foreign birds. It is huge with plenty to see. Plus the monkeys have broken in and are wandering about stealing the fruit for the birds. So that does keep it interesting.
We gave ourselves a holiday treat and spent the day at the Kuala Lumpur Botanical Gardens and truly enjoyed the peacefulness of the Butterfly Park. It is filled with beautiful tropical plants, pathways and of course butterflies.
Perdana Botanical Garden Kuala Lumpur was established in 1888 and is huge at approximately 226 acres of amazing gardens explore. The gardens are for public use with free entry and open 7am-8pm.
It is quite easy to get to by public transportation. Just take the Metro to the National Museum and follow the signs. Once you exit the metro you will be facing the National Museum. Turn toward the left and follow the sidewalk to the entrance to the gardens. You will enter at the bottom of the gardens near the lake.
Kuala Lumpur Forest Eco Park Malaysia is located in Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve (a hill dipterocarp forest). It is approximately 25 acres of all up and down….and an amazing Forest Canopy walk. Believe it or not it is in the middle of KL near the KLCC.
The 188 Suites hosted by CoBnB is a pretty great apt located in the KLCC Area. Just a 8 min walk from the Monorail stop Bukit Nanas and a 10-15 min walk to the Twin Towers and the KLCC Suria Mall. There is a Selections Grocery Store next door in the bottom of the Summer Suites Condos as well as a Mini Mart. 188 Suites has a very nice lobby with 24 hour security, card key access to your condo floor, 5th floor with the pool, kids play area, steam, sauna and therapeutic jacuzzi. You will also have access to the parking garage and the sky gym with great views over the city.
If you follow me on social media I am sure you have noticed that I love LaLaport Japanese Mall. It is soooooo nice.
For their first anniversary they are doing a double celebration with Chinese New Year.
I have done several videos of the Decorations and Displays that I will link here. They are fabulous.
Well we had to go…it is a rule when you are in a foreign land that you must go to the fast food places from your home country to compare and contrast. At least that is Jeffrey’s rule. To be honest I think he just wanted Tacos…lol To the counter we went. It looked right with all the branded images and outfits. The ordering was a bit of a thing. I have never been asked so many questions about a number 1 meal (2 Supreme Tacos and chips or fries)….ummm fries with tacos…no thank you. But then the questions started….
