While going to the Genting highlands, the skyway has a stop and from that, we can go down to the temple. There are quite a few staurs however the journey is made easy considering there are escalators to take you up and down. The temple...More

Although not really telling us much about the local culture, it is an ideal spot to take a couple of pictures with friends or family. Do take note that it takes some time going down and up from the cable-car station to the temple (roughly...More

Hi TA members, After much browsing through this forum, I have created this itinerary for my trip to KL in August. Really looking forward to your feedback on the feasibility of it, given I will be traveling with a 9-month old infant and wont be able to cover too much in a day. Please also share your thoughts on whether a day trip to Malacca would be doable, or would it be a bit too much for 1 day?

All looks good except for this one : Petrosains Science Discovery Centre. This guy is in Suria KLCC one of the top floors. Maybe you want to bundle them together. You could spend 1-3 hours depend on how fast you walk and view stuff there. Melaka Day trip is doable depend on how many places you visiting in Melaka. Travel time is 2hours one way. Keep that in mind. Wed- Batu caves, there is lot of staircase steps to climb just in case cause you got an infant. If you figures this out then...More

Yes you can do all these 3 in 1 day - but it's going to be one really really hectic and rushed day, so definitely, DO NOT attempt to do all the above in 1 day! I would simply avoid the caves, and just go to genting. Its cool, great cable car ride, and there are 2 theme parks which you can do for about US$ 30... outdated, but worth the price. Others here will say no, but for the price its absolutely fine, and it will keep you engaged for the full day. Chin swee temple - just take the...More
