As with other capital cities, there are a range of other activities available.
Rather than heading down into the deep blue, those with loftier aspirations can try their hand at indoor rock climbing at Camp 5 in One Utama shopping centre. This facility offers high standards of safety, and the latest equipment, to recreate the thrill of climbing a mountain, without either the danger or the expense.
A number of clubs offer martial arts training, but most of these involve long-term memberships. A better option for visitors is the YMCA in Brickfields, which runs a whole host of classes, such as Aikido and kickboxing.
