Day 2: Kuala Lumpur Heritage Walk

Heritage plays a big part in shaping today’s bustling KL City and it makes perfect sense to restore and maintain these influential spots.

This tour covers Jamek Mosque, The Colonial Core, Central Market, Sin Sze Si Ya Temple, Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, Little India, as well as Chinatown.

After lunch, you will proceed by train to Batu Caves. The caves are a Hindu Temple and the main attraction is the huge statue of an Hindu God at the entrance.

To enter the caves, there are 272 steps to climb. You will return to the Hotel in the afternoon.
