I am back with another article on Malaysia. This time famous Batu Caves. It is a limestone hill consist of three major caves and a number of smaller ones.
Dedicated to Lord Murugan, this vibrant temple has a series of caves and cave temples. It is believed that the caves are said to be around 400 million years old.
The largest and most popular cavern in Batu Caves is Cathedral Cave, which has a number of Hindu shrines beneath its 100-metre-high arched ceiling. One can spot two other cave temples at the foot of Batu Hill – the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave . These two temples have a number of Hindu statues and paintings.
One has to climb up the 272 steps to reach the top of the caves. The famous Murugan Statue is located at the foot of the Cave. The 42.7 meter statue is the tallest statue in Malaysia.
Batu Caves is located about 73.0km away from Kuala Lumpur airport. Have you explored this vibrant place ?
A new Vietnamese AD invites tourists back after COVID-19.
The Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) has partnered with CNN International to launch a new television commercial inviting travelers to consider Vietnam for their first holidays post COVID-19.
The 30-second clip, which features some of Vietnam’s top tourism products and destinations, ends with the sentence, “When you’re ready to travel again, why not Vietnam?” VNAT leaders said the ad aims to remind travellers of Vietnam’s charms and suggest the country as a safe and enticing destination for vacationers in 2021.
The video was created with support from the Vietnam Tourism Advisory Board (TAB), and can be viewed during commercial breaks on CNN Asia for six weeks from October 15, as well as on the national tourism website (www.vietnam.travel) and its social media channels.
Vietnam will soon launch more activities to accompany the ‘Why Not Vietnam?’ video, including giveaways on social media, ad banners, and articles that highlight Vietnam’s capable handling of the coronavirus and its commitment to the safety of its guests and citizens.
