Take a half-day adventure to the spiritual Batu Caves, just north of Kuala Lumpur, and climb the 272 steps carved into the sides of giant limestone cliffs to reach the Hindu temple at the summit. Visit the Batik Center to experience traditional Malaysian cloth-dying, used as sarongs and fabric.

Your first stop is the energetic Little India district, where you discover the delicacies of Indian culture through colorful food stalls and markets selling everything from saris to golden trinkets. From there, leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you head to the 400-million-year-old Batu Caves. Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims before you and brave the climb to reach a temple filled with Hindu shrines. On the way back down, snap a few photos of the mischievous monkeys looking to pick up treats from visitors.

On your way back to town, swing by the Malaysian Batik Center, where authentic batik fabric is designed and produced into ready-to-wear material, and look for unique pewter itemsat the Royal Selangor Pewter Center, where you see the world’s largest pewter company at work and can pick up some splendid souvenirs.

The tour company should mention ahead of time

that women should wear shorts or pants below the knee to enter instead of waiting until you're on your way to the fabric shop and mention that you will need it so buy a piece of fabric. It makes it seem like they've got a game going. Otherwise, you have to rent a sarong at the foot of the steps that has been worn by others. They should prepare people ahead of time.

The tour information said little India would be

on the tour but it wasn't. It was nice but not the tour advertised.
