Kuala Lumpur, Melaka & Penang - Day Trips from Kuala Lumpur

Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Kuala Lumpur and they can each be completed in a day. Must-sees include the Batu Caves and the Forest Research Institute Malaysia.

Batu Caves’ dramatic limestone crag riddled with caverns is both a natural marvel and religious site with its holy Hindu shrines and colourful dioramas

- switch track from the drone of city traffic and air-conditioning to birdsong and all-encompassing greenery at the Forest Research Institute Malaysia

- breathe easy at the classic, colonial-era, high-altitude resort of Bukit Fraser on the Selangor–Pahang border; it’s also a top bird-spotting destination

- travel from city to coast along the Klang Valley, pausing at a range of fun attractions and sights including a giant water theme park, a mega-mosque and Klang’s vibrant Little India

- Malaysia’s administrative hub of Putrajaya is a showboat of daring contemporary and Islamic heritage architecture arranged around a pretty, artificial lake

Coverage includes: Batu Caves, Forest Research Institute Malaysia, Bukit Fraser (Fraser’s Hill), Klang Valley, Putrajaya.

About the Authors

Simon Raven and Chris Raven were born in the United Kingdom. ‘Living the Linger’ was first published in 2005, and follows the brothers on a journey of lost love and search for the truth as they traverse Interstate 15 across backcountry USA. Simon and Chris became established as overland travel writers a year later with the publication of ‘Driving the Trans-Siberian’ in 2006 and ‘Carnival Express’ in 2007. The travel writing duo have since driven full circle around the Black Sea, traversed the Trans-oceanic highway from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast of South America and in 2007 travelled the road to Damascus. In addition to co-writing four travel books, they have documented and photographed multiple off the beaten track destinations across the globe including China’s deep south, tribal India and the Balkan peninsula.

Simon and Chris have been noted by Lonely Planet for their talent to portray an “accurate view of what to expect”.
