Babies and snakes, Malaysia


Have a baby? Wondering where to find a live python to wrap around it, whilst taking photos like a proud parent on the first day at pre-school… legally?

Then the travel destination for you is Malaysia’s Batu Caves, just outside of capital Kuala Lumpur. Most tourists come here to explore the beautiful and vast natural caves, with surreal light streaming through the green ferns lining the opening. However, this natural beauty escapes some parents when they realise they can get a photo of their baby, in front of Batu Caves, with a Python wrapped around the child! Truly a happy snap coup.

For a safer option to the python alternative, take time for a Kodak moment with the cute little monkeys looking for leftovers lining the 272 steps to the summit.
