Hello, It's a great place to visit for anyone visiting Kuala Lumpur, first or repeat visitors alike, but there a couple of things to consider. First of all, there are several attractions right next to the Batu Caves, including a bird park and Hindu temple, so it depends on what you want to do. Also, on your way up the steps or down the steps, there is a side tour you can take into one of the caves, but they're scheduled and does take at least an additional hour or two. Also, inside the main cave at the top of the stairs, there are several significant statues and Hindu shrines that are definitely worth the time to admire! So overall, it depends on how much of your day you want to spend there or what else you may want to do that day. So at minimum, I would say 2 hours, but maximum probably between 4 to 5 hours. Again, depends on what you and your family want to do. Also, I'd recommend going in the morning because Malaysia is a very hot climate and the steps are very strenuous activity for young children and elderly. On that note, wear tennis shoes or walking shoes of some kind- heels and sandals are TERRIBLE idea for this activity- no matter what span of time you choose spend there. One last note- give the monkeys plenty of room, and DO NOT feed them. They will go nuts trying to steal your stuff if they think you have food. Hope this helps! Have fun!
