Malaysia A bubbling, bustling melting pot of different races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Malaysia home to hundreds of colourful festivals. As people, Malaysians are very laid back, warm and friendly.


Key attractions is its extreme contrasts. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts, and five-star hotels sit several metres away from ancient reefs.Cool hideaways are found at Genting & Cameron highlands that roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves forests.

Batu Caves is a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples in Gombak, Selangor, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu, which flows past the hill. It is the tenth limestone hill from Ampang.

Definitely worth going The cave is impressive, and the innermost temple area with the “hole” on the ceiling is really a lovely sight. There are even monkeys on that area and they climb up and down the hole. Remember, don’t smile at them.
Before the caves, there’s also a lot to enjoy. Lots of food stalls outside that carry local delicacies for a decent price.
Then there’s the feeding area for the pigeons which is also fun but you have to be careful as it’s covered with bird poop. Yuk.
Then there’s the gigantic statue of the Hindu God of War.
