Visit to KL Bird Park, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park or KL Bird Park is located in the scenic Lake Gardens and is the home to more than 3,000 birds. Although it is well-renowned globally, I’m sure many of you didn’t know that KL Bird Park is the world’s largest free-flight walk-in aviary – in simple terms, KL Bird Park is the world’s largest covered bird park where the birds could roam free. Sound exciting?

Fish & Bird food vending machine
One of the activities in KL Bird Park that is a must is bird feeding. Fish & Bird food can be bought for just MYR 1.00 (two 50 cent coins) from a vending machine. The bird food is conveniently stored inside a capsule when you purchase them. The same food can also be used to feed the fish as they are plenty of ponds with fish all over the park.

Angel lends her hand to feed Lories
As Angel was envious of Jezebelle and her bird-feeding activities, she braved herself and became adventurous by lending her hand to feed the lorikeets. As lorikeets are known for their love for nectar, honey is what the keeper uses to attract the lories. You’ll be provided a cup of milk (with honey) and the entire flocks of lorikeet will be all over you.

Family photo at Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
Overall, Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a beautiful place with plenty of birds for viewing. The park is well-maintained with the birds in excellent health, unlike other zoos in Malaysia. The kids will definitely love it as well as the adults but the admission price is a little pricey. Even so, it is worth it.

For souvenir, there are tons of gifts you can get from Hornbill Gift Shop, although for this round, we didn’t get anything as the experience and the photograph with the exotic birds were sufficient for us.

- Bring your own food whether they are home-made sandwiches or take-away would be a better option than having your lunch at the restaurants at the KL Bird Park as they don’t check your bags at the entrance. Likewise, there are many restaurants located just nearby.
- Bring your own water bottles and drink plenty of water as the hot and humid weather can make you dehydrated in a short time.
- Bring mosquito repellent spray in order to prevent mosquito and insect bites.
