We had never imagined or dreamt that the year 2020 will treat humankind like this. Who would have thought that the whole human race will be at danger and something like coronavirus will force us to be at home? Being a traveller, I know how much I miss being at the road, discovering some new destinations, talking about it. In a nutshell, I love to be a storyteller where I discuss my experience with others and try to connect a relation with them. For me, the word travel defines my freedom in this era. And with the coronavirus outbreak, travel which I love so much came at stake. Social distancing, not able to hug is something I had never want and will surely never want to see any such situation ever In my life again.
But I was thankful that before the situation got worse, I enjoyed my vacation to Malaysia and Indonesia. I clearly remember that I was excited like a two-year-old kid for my trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I can recall the beautiful Malaysia advertisements on television which says ‘Malaysia truly Asia’.
Starting the trip from Delhi, I can remember the anxiety and excitement level I was feeling. The journey from Delhi to Kaula Lumpur is six hours.
Before going ahead with my experience, I must admit that the landing on a foreign land has its own anticipation. My whole body system was trying to adjust with a place which was my home for some hours. My stay at Kuala Lumpur was not for long.
I had already listed the places which I wanted to see. So not wasting much time l booked my cab from Grab app which is cheapest to travel anywhere.
The first place in Kuala Lumpur I visited was Batu Caves. One of the most frequently visited place, Batu Caves is an iconic tourist destination. Located in Selangor, the cave is made of limestone and has three main caves featuring Hindu temples and shrines.
If you googled about the caves then you have probably seen a large statue measuring 42 meters and the colourful staircase. The place is highly recommended to pay a visit.
To get to the caves, I climbed almost 300 steps. I was totally tired by the time I reached the main cave. And also beware from the monkeys. The place has a lot of monkeys. The women visiting had to cover their feet as it is considered inauspicious.
When heading upstairs, do take a look in the downward direction at the view. Remember the higher you get, the more beautiful view you will see. Once I reached the top, the view made me felt relaxed. There are temples with Hindu gods. The aromatic environment was just perfect to go ahead with my trip further. The caves were nothing less than a dash of colours. Such colourful idols and aromatic smell of agarbattis were making me feel rejuvenating.
Malaysia is not less than any dream. Everything is so clean, planned and the best part is that here people only work for five days in fact the government too. Isn’t it so exciting!

When the environment is so dull and lifeless then why don't add some colours to it. Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur gave us a chance to live in as many as colours like a rainbow. 🌈 🌈 🌈 🌈 🌈 🌈 🌈 Batu Caves is famous for 42 meters long statue of Hindu god Murgan but there is another sight also which is the rainbow coloured staircase heading towards the three main caves. 🦋 🦋 🦋 🦋 🦋 🦋 The colourful stairs was the first thing I saw. As we landed at Kuala Lumpur early morning, we straight head to Batu Caves. We were surprised the place was already crowded with tourists. . . . . . While we do understand that you're not supposed to be sharing in these tough times.

Well, I should admit that I always had imagined any such country which only works for five days and enjoys weekend to the fullest.
Oh! did I mentioned that outside Batu Caves you can also have Indian food because there is an Indian restaurant. So, enjoy your breakfast and happy journey.
