as early as December I booked my tickets after seeing good deals at AirAsia site.
It was set as my first solo-trip abroad but fortunately my friends opted to join me on my summer 2014 trip to KL and visit Petronas Twin Tower and Batu Cave. A short and rush trip visiting the site.
Arrived before lunch at the new KLIA2 we somewhat played hide and seek just to meet Loren who came all the way from Dubai and landed on the other airport but failed to inquire about our flight details. Nevertheless, we were acquainted after almost two hours of train ride, Malaysian sim card and inquiry at the KLIA1 frontdesk and thank God for the free internet at the airport.
Philmar pre-booked our round-trip Airbus ticket online and paid RM16/pax and found ourselves at KL Sentral. Took the KL Komuter train going to Batu caves and paid less then RM5 for 3 pax. After few mins we were already at the foot of the cave with other foreigners taking pictures of the Majestic Batu Cave – limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples in the Gombak district, 13 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill source: Wikipedia.
Described on blogs and other travel sites that truly fantastic but just be cautious and careful of the monkeys wondering around. We even saw one Caucasian trying to get back his belonging taken by one of the bandit.
After two hours of selfies and groupies we took the same train going back to KL Sentral and this time see the majestic Petronas. Took the Putra LRT going to KLCC and in less than 10mins we were taking pictures of beauty of Petronas. It was drizzling when we got there but it did not bother me or us to take as many as possible good shots. I was more than happy seeing my friends and I enjoying every click and tick of our cameras.
Headed back to KLIA2 for our next flight going to Bali but unfortunately Loren missed to check-in early and she did not make it. Purchased another flight from KL to Yogyakarta for the next days itinerary.
