A popular day trip from Kuala Lumpur is to take the KTM KL Sentral to Batu Caves Komuter Train to visit the famous temple caves.
The Komuter Train from Kuala Lumpur to Batu Caves takes just over half an hour, with many services from the first early morning train, until late at night.
You can choose to take the train from either KL Sentral Railway Station or the old Kuala Lumpur Moorish Station (trains depart from the old station KL Station around 5 to 6 minutes later than trains from KL Sentral)
KTM Komuter Train tickets are only sold on the day of travel and no advance purchase is available or necessary.
Tickets are sold from the ticket counter right next to the KTM Komuter departure gates at KL Sentral station.
