I've thought about visiting Batu caves since I saw it featured in an episode of Amazing Race. So of course, while I was in Kuala Lumpur I decided to take the short train ride to the caves. The entrance to the caves is guarded by a gigantic statue and it is quite impressive. Once up the many steps the caves are beautiful and you can even take a guided tour deep into the caves. Definitely worth a visit especially since it's just outside the city.
