Exploring the City by Foot
I love to city explore by foot, so that is exactly what I’m doing in this travel vlog from Kauala Lumpur. Starting out in Chinatown I will walk towards the city centre and guide you along the way. We will be seeing architecture from the colonial era, huge western style skyscrapers and religious buildings such as the mosque.
Malaysia is a country rich in history, so much that it has its own colonial walk. They are also rich in friendliness here, and people smile and greet my while I walk around.
What I find very nice in Kuala Lumpur is that the whole city is equipped with signs that tell you in which direction all the different sights and tourist attractions are. This makes it so much more easier to navigate around in the city.
I encounter by chance a textile museum that is free of charge to enter, imagine that, no entrance fee needed to experience a museum. I must say that it pleases me to visit such interesting places and not having to pay for it.
Not far from the textile museum is the Central Market. A huge indoor market established in 1888 which still is open today. There I do some Christmas shopping and pick up some Chinese antiques. This market offers so much I am willing to bet you can find just about anything there. Take a stroll down little India or head to see arts and crafts from Malaysia, the central market has it all.
Once the evening arrives I embark upon the chinatown market and the festivities taking place there at night. Endless small shops that sell everything from sunglasses to leather, most of it are counterfeit.
Are we breaking up Malaysia?
It is not every day I receive death threats, but this day it happened. I was sitting at Starbucks minding my own business in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. All of a sudden a beggar comes up to me and asks me for money. I tell to him to that I did not have any spare change on me, but he would not back down and the bum gets more and more aggressive. The situation, in all honestly felt quite uncomfortable and even dangerous at times.
When I woke up this day the plan was originally to go out and explore the Batu Caves, but I didn’t sleep much the day before and that meant I overslept. I dont stress much about that, and instead I take a chill day where I go through upcoming travel plans, book a hotel for my next destination and finish the day off in the chinatown market to look what they cant tempt me with.
Batu Caves Extraordinaire
The 400 million years old cave is also a 100 year old hindu temple. Batu caves was first discovered by the Aboriginals. Thereafter it was re-discovered by an American. However the cave didn't become a temple before an Indian man found it in the late 1890s.
Batu caves ranks as the top 1 tourist attraction in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and is located only 11 km outside of the city centre. To get to the top of you need walk up 272 steps.
Cathedral Cave; the largest and most popular cavern in Batu Caves houses several Hindu shrines beneath its 100 metre high arched ceiling. There are 2 other cave temples as well, at the foot of Batu Hill. Namely the the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave ; which houses numerous Hindu statues and paintings.
Dark Cave is also a part of Batu Caves, but a completely separate cave. Dark Cave is a conservation site home to the rarest spider (Liphistius batuensi) on earth and an ancient animal community over 100 million year old
