We bought our 70 cent train tickets for the hour ride and were on our way!
The caves are surprisingly new. When I see something like that, I would assume that it's this ancient monument, but it was in fact built in the 1890s.
It is a Hindu shrine and one of the most popular outside of India. There are 3 main caves.
My nightmare! I didn't see anything, luckily, since it would have resulted in me sprinting out of the cave like the girl in Jumanji.
I did, however, see a lot of monkeys. Macaques to be specific. The worst. They were rather threatening, but I've learned to expect that when traveling in Asia. There are always monkeys.
There were also various other shrines within the cave.
The caves were quite majestic!
There was a small hole above the main temple inside the caves.
There were monkeys of course...
They were fine. The monkeys ran away instead.
On the train, there was a ladies only car, a sign that said "No indecent behavior" with a picture of people kissing.
We got this famous dish for lunch, which involved chicken and rice.
The three of us also looked around the Central Market that day.
We also went to Little India in Brickfield, which was like entering another country. It was suddenly louder and more colorful. It was bustling! We ate delicious curry and garlic naan.
We wandered the Bukit Batang shopping area aimlessly until our feet got really tired.
We smashed our way onto the monorail, which was VERY crowded, and head back to the hostel.
The next morning, we headed to Malacca, which will be the next blog!
