My RM2 Trip to Batu Caves, Malaysia

I love traveling more than anything and one of the things I anticipate about our wedding next March, is my free "sponsored" trip from Leon. I know, free travel is the best. Tell me in the comment where are the best honeymoon places! I could really use some advice!

Last month, Leon and I went to Batu Caves. Despite the place being slightly dirty, everything is amazing. The gold color enormous statue is jaw dropping and overwhelming. I stood in awe when I had the chance to see it in front of me. 

Fun fact about Malaysia's Batu Caves is we have the second tallest Hindu deity statue in the world!

The stairs are really steep to walk.
These steps are almost 90 degrees up but it's a healthy Sunday activity for both of us!

I took every step cautiously and comfortable shoes play a big role here.
The shoes I am wearing are from Skechers.

You will see a lot of monkeys on your way, be really careful not to step on them! 
It's quite a sight but definitely feeding is not encouraged, but you will see lots of people feeding pigeons and monkeys anyway.

The scenery feels like another world.

Some interesting cave ceiling spikes formed due to.... (insert science and geology here)

Some say that if you manage to carry your love one and walk to the top, your love will last forever.
Looks like forever is only for strong couples, we just took a picture instead.

 One side note for ladies, Always remember to wear clothing that is long enough to cover your knees.
Or else, you'll have to pay RM5 to rent a shawl. Refund the shawl after the visit tho, you'll get back RM2.

Overall, we spent RM3 because of the rental of the shawl, and RM2 for the inevitable parking fees. There's other alternatives to go Batu Caves but I still find driving the easiest. 

Signing off,
Panting but fun!
