KL Bird Park

Standard

Known as the “world’s largest free-flight walk-in aviary,” the KL Bird Park is a must visit place for all who visit the city of Kuala Lumpur.

Home to more than 3,000 birds of 200 local and foreign bird species, there are a lot of activities that one can enjoy here.Chase peacocks and hornbills, pose with owls and parrots on one’s shoulder, feed parakeets, watch ostriches lay eggs and be awed by soaring storks and flamingos in surroundings that hardly feel caged-in or too commercial.With every step you take, there will definitely be birds that catch your attention.

Daily activities at the Bird Park include bird shows, eagle feeding, horn bill feeding and so much more. If you are a fan of bird-watching or a photography fanatic, the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a place you would want to visit.

Tranquil, lush, well-planned, the KL Bird Park and surrounding green space is a beautiful respite from the concrete and traffic in Kuala Lumpur

The KL Bird Park is carved into four zones:

  • Zone 1 and 2 are a free-flight area where birds may interact and roam about as they wish.
  • Zone 3 is designated as the hornbill park.
  • Zone 4 contains some caged birds, special breeding areas, and an amphitheatre where two daily shows take place.

A bird show is held every day at 12:30 p.m. And3:30 p.m. at the zone 4 amphitheater. A restaurant, cafe, photo booth, and two gift shops are located within the bird park.

Aquaria KLCC

Standard

With nothing much to do for the day and after hearing a lot about the KLCC Aquaria, I though of venturing out to have a look at this place.  Situated inside the KLCC underpass tunnel connecting the Suria KLCC to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, this place is not hard to find.

Aquaria KLCC Entrance Fees

With MyKad / MyKid Non MyKad / MyKid
ADULT RM38 RM50
CHILD (3-12 years old) RM28 RM40
SENIOR CITIZEN
(60 years and above)
RM28 RM30

A bit steep considering the time spent inside. It is actually quite small and we left within 15 minutes. Good experience for kids though.

There are quite a few other package programs that one could opt for like dive with sharks and others. The place is remains open 7 days a week between 10:30 AM to 8PM.

To be frank anyone who has had the opportunity to visit the Dubai Aquarium would certainly not like the place. If you go there with large hope you will become frustrated.Its an average aquaria. The area is not so large. There’s also a conveyor walk so it helps to keep people moving. Other than that the rest of the aquarium is okay at best. The aquarium really doesn’t have anything that is unique or gives it that ” wow” factor. It has the usual under water tunnel with some sharks and rays. It also has an area where you can pet some if the star fish and such.

I would definitely not suggest this place as a must do in Kuala Lumpur.
