We had an early check-out and entrusted our baggage for the second time to the receptionist. Since we’ll be out the whole day, we thought it was the best thing to do rather than paying for the additional charges after 11am.
In going to Batu Cave, we took the train to Putra and spend 30 minutes for the travel. Below the terminal, ticket counters to Genting Highlands can be found as well as the bus schedule. Since we had no enough time to spare in going to Genting, we opted not to get a ticket. We took a cab at Putra Gombak in going to Batu Cave. Make sure the driver uses his meter, if he didn’t, look for another one.
Batu Cave is a sacred place for Hindu, this is also the place where they celebrate Thaipusam festival. Based on what we heard, Hindus start to walk from the city all the way to Batu Cave during this event. We had seen some Hindus there who climbed up with no shoes and slippers.
From Batu Cave, we waited for a taxi outside the premises. You can buy lemonade juice for RM1 and eat fresh fruits for RM1 at the hawker stand in front of the gate while waiting for the taxi in case you are hungry. From Putra Gombak, we took again the train and get-off at KL Sentral, the last station. From KL Sentral, we took the KLIA Express in going to Putrajaya.
Since most of the pexers recommended Putrajaya as one of the must-visits in KL, we went there without having our lunch first expecting that we can grab something to eat at Putra Mosque. Since we failed to go there yesterday, which I scheduled in the afternoon, we had no choice but to go there at 1pm. 😥 Well, our experience in this place was not that good at all. Our skins got burnt and walking under the sun made us dehydrated. Next time, I’ll make an intensive research before heading to this place.
Sungei Wang Plaza, Best Rate, Giant Supermarket
Since Sungei Wang Plaza was the closest mall to Bukit Bintang Station, hubby and I decided to had our late lunch there. The food court can be found at the third floor. After lunch, we checked the mall as well as the items being sold in each shop. During that time, Vincci had their sale of shoes and bags. Having not enough ringgit in my wallet, we went to Best Rate to buy ringgit. Before leaving KL, we bought some items at Giant Supermarket where you can find affordable goods. We went back to the hotel at around 7pm, got our baggage then took the train to the bus terminal. We were leaving for Melaka! 😉
Going to Melaka
Melaka is only 3 hours away from Kuala Lumpur that’s why I included this in our itinerary. I have been hearing good reviews on this place that’s why we went there to find out. 🙂
