KL Bird Park
GETTING HERE: It takes 10 minutes to walk from KL Sentral. At the entrance of KL Sentral facing the Hilton/Meridien hotels, turn right and follow the covered walkways. At the overhead bridge facing the National Museum, walk down the staircase and follow the signs to the Lake Gardens. Walk by the lake until you reach a long flight of stairs. At the top, there are clear signs leading to the Bird Park.
A ticket for a Malaysian costs RM 27 (adult), RM 13 (child); for a foreigner RM 50 (adult), RM 41 (child). This is quite pricey, but the content of the park is worth it in my opinion. A map is provided and the suggested route is labelled so you don’t miss anything.
After the love aviary you’ll find yourself in the open aviary. It is apparently the largest free-flight walk-in aviary in the world. Here you’ll find tons of birds wandering around including peacocks.
In the middle of the park is the Hornbill Restaurant & Cafe accessible through a giftstore. Prices are not too expensive and the food is not bad. They have locals and western. Free water and orange juice are provided too!
Next I went to the World of Parrots which I think is really cool. There are free-flying parrots and some in cages. There’s also a chance one might land on your hand!
Next are cages containing some oriental birds and here are some that I think look cool.
At this point I was getting quite a few mosquito bites. So be sure to bring insect repellent when you come.
Then I reached the waterfall aviary, where there’s a nice waterfall with some birds roaming inside.
The amphitheater is right next to the waterfall aviary but unfortunately when I was there there wasn’t any show going on (they’re on 12.30pm and 3.30pm).
This sums up my visit to the bird park. I spent about 2-3 hours here and it was fun. It was nice to see the birds roaming around freely but there are still some which are locked in cages. If you like birds or animals this is definitely worth a visit!
