A surprisingly good place to visit from KL, it's only 30 Ringgit from near the Petronius towers and is about a 30 minute taxi ride. Entrance is only a couple of pounds. Ladies need to wear trousers/long shorts just below the knee or must hire...More

This place is basically a religious place of the hindu god. You can also consider it as a adventure for two reasons. 1 - A few Hundred steps to climb which will give you some sort of exercise. 2 - Monkeys, though not agressive but...More
