Vegan Travel | The Batu Caves of Malaysia

Cover for Batu Caves of Malaysia

As my Instagram might suggest, despite all my travelling, most of my days are filled with animals and my laptop. Part of the reason for this is that I’m a terrible tourist. I’ve never been one to make Must See lists or run around a place trying to take in as much as I can before I leave (minus vegan food-related items, of course), so it’s rare for me to be one of the many people taking photos of buildings, monuments, landmarks, and other such things.

That being said, I have made exceptions. A few of these would include Big Ben in London, the Grand Canyon, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, and the old walls of York, England. For the most part though, it’s just a lot of animals, trips to the grocery store, and fighting with iMovie.

So, it’s not surprising to me that the last time I made a special trek to see something was during my time in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia nearly two months ago. After finishing a house sit there, I took a few days to see what the city had to offer for vegan food. Luckily, my friends Giselle and Cody from Mindful Wanderlust had previously visited the city, so I already some must eats in mind. Sadly, I didn’t do as well on the food checklist as I had hoped (more on my food adventures in KL to come at a later date!), but I did at least get to visit both the Petronas Towers and the Batu Caves.

Although one is more a big symbol of capitalism (the mall on the ground floor alone made me shake my head numerous times), the other is a site that is very important to Hindus, especially those outside of India. Personally, that wasn’t my reason for hopping on the train to take the journey, but I have to admit that the place itself was rather impressive.

Plus, there were baby monkeys, which is always a great way to spend time in a place before leaving, right?
