We heard about Kuala Lumpur Bird Park for the first time two years ago, during our first trip to Malaysia. Even though we stayed in Kuala Lumpur for a month, we didn’t go there then.
But this time we definitely couldn’t miss KL Bird Park!
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is largest free-flight walk-in aviary. That means there are quite a lot of birds walking and flying around freely. Bird Park is located next to the Lake Gardens, 5 km south-west of Petronas Towers.
The ticket costs 50 Malaysian Ringgit (around 11 EUR / 12 USD). Along with a ticket you will get a map of the park. On the other side of the map you will see information about all daily activities.
The best time to visit this park is weekday mornings. Not only it will be less crowded but also it will be not so hot. We recommend you to go to the Bird Show (at no extra cost) as well, which at the time of writing this, happens twice a day – at 12:30 PM and at 3:30 PM. Several times a day it’s possible to witness bird feeding. For timings and location check out information on the back of your map!
KL Bird Park is open daily from 9 AM to 6 PM.
Park is clean and well maintained. Birds seem curious and are used to people.
Getting to Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
You can get there by taxi, by train, by KL Hop-On Hop-Off bus and, of course, by foot .
We went there by metro and got off at Masjid Jamek Metro Station, which is the nearest metro station to the Bird Park. And then we walked remaining 2 kilometers to the park. Traveling by KTM Komuter train you can get a little bit closer. In this case you should get off at KTM Old Railway Kuala Lumpur Station, which is approximately 1 kilometer away from the park.
In both situations you can choose whether to walk remaining distance or take a taxi directly to the entrance of the park.
KL Hop-On Hop-Off bus stops just in from of KL Bird Park entrance. As you probably know, Hop-On Hop-Off bus will take you to many other significant landmarks and attractions of Kuala Lumpur as well.
