Since you're arriving around 3 it's wiser to do central KL first then Batu Caves the next morning.

Sorry to hijack the thread but should you go in the morning because of the heat and is it right I can get the train or monorail there now instead of a taxi?

Hi Jo,

Yes you can get there by the KTM Komuter train.

Morning is preferable unless you don't mind climbing 272 steps in the afternoon heat. ;)

You're welcome. The train station links directly into Mid Valley Megamall via pedestrian bridge. I think you'll end up in one section of the 1st floor. (2nd for Americans)
