Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Kuala Lumpur (must see)

Spend a day gaping in awe at some of nature’s daintiest creatures, birds. Without doubt, the Aves are some of nature’s most delicate specimens in the wild. Although an opportunity to watch these quaint little creatures is always welcomed by one and all, it is a shame to see them wither behind a cage or trapped behind closed doors. But not at the Bird Park in Kuala Lumpur!

If you love bird watching, then the Bird Park is the perfect retreat on a bright day in the city. Experience the exotic sights and sounds of the public aviary that houses over 200 species of birds from all over the world. Spread over 21 acres of land, the park is adjacent to the Perdana Botanical Gardens which is a popular recreational park. Attracting over 200,000 visitors all year round, the park has an international reputation and attracts tourists from all over the world.

Situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the Bird Park has received accolades for being the world’s largest free-flight, walk-in aviary. Apart from that, it has also earned its reputation for promoting eco-tourism. Enjoy the unique experience of watching some of the most exotic birds in their most natural environment. Boasting a population of over 3000 birds, the Bird Park is the perfect place to feel one with nature and wilderness.

Why You Should Visit:
Most of the birds are just a step away, walking around you on the sidewalk! So close and they're not afraid of people.
The park has a souvenir and gift shop, and just above the amphitheater is a children's playground, which is a big hit with children.

Better on a dry day, but the park is pretty sheltered so even on a very wet afternoon it's a good place to explore.
Using caps or hats would be a great idea as the birds move and fly around openly. You wouldn't want to spoil your day if they decided to spoil it for you.

Opening Hours:
[Park, Kiosks, Gift Shop] Daily: 9am-6pm (including Public Holidays and School Holidays)
[Hornbill Restaurant & Café] Daily: 9am-8pm (including Public Holidays and School Holidays)
