Adventures in KL are posts where I share my experience and suggestions of things to do with kids in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding areas. Suggestions are very much welcome!
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
920 Jalan Lembah Taman Tasik Perdana,
Kuala Lumpur 50480,
N3 08.581 E101 41.294
9.00am - 6.00pm
Go early - aim to arrive around 10.30am. Before you enter the bird park, buy bird food at the “bird food dispenser” at the entrance. I use quotation marks because this machine is rickety and old, and 50% of the time, it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do. Many a time I’ve had to ask for assistance from the security guards to make it dispense bird food. FYI, you can also get bird food inside, but no one will be around to help you with the stupid thing when it will (almost certainly) refuse to give you the food you’ve paid 20 sen for.

You’ll be able to take photos at the photo booth with several macaws, owls, and cockatoos (or whatever birds they have that day). You can opt for an official photographer, or take photos yourself. I believe it costs between RM10-RM30.

the kids, and some kids
(like Afraz) refuse to go
near the birds. But if your
kid is a fan, like Aqil, it'll be
a fun, hands-on experience.
After the show, we play at the playground for a little bit, then we go to the air-conditioned nursery slash discovery center, where you can coo at the adorable chicks and ducklings whilst taking a break from the heat outside. After that, we walk around and either check out the flamingoes towards the right of the main exit, or go straight home via the gift shop and restaurant (this exit is only stairs-only, and thus not stroller-accessible).

There are many other things you can do in the park, including feeding different species of birds, but this is the typical day we spend at the KL Bird Park when we go there. Please visit the KL Bird Park Website to learn more about what else they have to offer.
