Besides Kuala Lumpur's iconic Petronas Twin Towers
, one other place I would highly recommend on your visit to Kuala Lumpur is the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.
The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a 20.9-acre (8.5 ha) public aviary right in the heart of the city. Located adjacent to the Lake Gardens, the Bird Park houses more than 3000 birds representing more than 200 species in an enclosed aviary. It is one of the world's largest covered bird parks. On my visit I was pleasantly surprised that it's shady inside, so no need for an umbrella, unless if it rains, of course.
For as little as RM2, I think it was, you could feed these pretty birds (parakeets, I think) and they would even gladly perch on your shoulder or your hand for a 'say cheese' photo-moment.
You can get to the Bird Park by bus or by train..(Wikipedia)
- Take the Intrakota Bus 21C, 48C (From Kota Raya).
- Take the Intrakota Bus 18, 21A (From Chow Kit).
- Take the RapidKL Bus 115 (From KL Sentral).
- KTM Komuter - disembark at the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, then walk to the park or take a taxi.
By the way, while you are there, at the Bird Park, do visit the Orchid Garden
. When the flowers are in full bloom they are a sight to behold. Orchids in pots are also available for sale. The Orchid Garden is just opposite the Bird Park so don't miss it. Entrance is free.
For an extra bonus, there's also the Hibiscus Garden
inside the Orchid Garden. The last time I was there they had Segways for rent so you could tour the garden without too much walking if you are game enough to take on that machine.
And now for our Friday Frolic, in line with our discussion on birds, let's take a Parrot Test this week shall we?
Happy Friday, everyone!

You are a strong individual, but you can blend in when you need to. You have amazing camouflage.
