Batu Caves Transportation
Batu caves are quite a site to see, but getting there is the first task. Other travelers have some tips here on their experience with Batu Caves transportation- with options like taxi, train, bus and airport trips.
Train, Bus, Taxi
Previous visitors have enjoyed the train line to Batu Caves which you can catch it from KL Sentral ( Kuala Lumpur Central station). The train terminal is right next to Batu Caves with about 3 minutes of walking involved. The cost is 2 Ringgits, which is cheaper than the number 11 Bus that costs 2.50 Ringgits, and it’s also more comfortable by train. If you join a tour, they charge 70 Ringgits. You’ll have to haggle with taxis and expect to pay 40 ringgits or more one way.
Private vans or AUV services usually end up being a good deal since gasoline prices are subsidized in Malaysia where a liter of premium unleaded gasoline is only RM 2.15!
There are many tour companies around Kuala Lumpur and Genting offering this service. The first type of private van is booked through a tour company “private van tour” with the entrance fees of attractions and lunch included. The cost is about 250 to 300 RM per person depending on the number of locations visited, for example: Chin Swee caves in Genting, then half day Kuala Lumpur, or whole day Kuala Lumpur tour with the Batu Caves included. The second type of van service you can hire would have a driver tour guide, but the entrances to all attractions are paid out of your own pocket as you go. A whole day tour without paid entrances to attractions is about 180 to 200 RM per person, but entrance to the Batu Caves is free!
