We took the kids to the KL Bird Park after I read awesome reviews on it. I figured, it will be fun for the kids to have a walk in the park and see some birds. It is after all the "World's Largest Free-flight Walk-in Aviary". I've always wanted to go and check it out. We invited my sil to come along with her 2 kids. My daughter was excited to have her cousins with her. They're the ultimate BFF those two!
We arrived quite early. Their opening hours are from 9am - 6pm and I read that it is better to go early so that it is not too hot. We arrived at about 9.30am and waited for almost an hour for my sil and clan to arrive. They got lost somewhere and that's why they were late. We sat at the café in front and had a bit to eat/drink.
Entry ticket weren't too bad too. We paid RM25.00 for adults and RM12.00 for kids. My son is below 3 years old so we didn't have to pay for him. Make sure to bring MyKad/MyKid too because you'll have to pay more without those. By right we had to pay RM48.00 for our maids since they don't have MyKad but somehow, they didn't ask for those so we only ended up paying RM25.00 for them too.
We spent about 2 hours or so there. Honestly speaking.....the kids had a great time...walking. They couldn't really care less about the birds there. They were just having fun walking and running around. We saw a lot of peacocks but only 1 was showing off. We did get to go up close to the birds. The bird show wasn't all that great.
I don't know..I guess I expected it to be really great but it wasn't all that. I mean, it was ok. Kids got to go up to some of the birds (mainly the peacocks) and the place was nice and clean. It wasn't too hot because of the trees and all there. We got to feed some fishes and that was fun for the kids.
They have a playground near the bird show area. When kids saw this, they obviously couldn't care less to see the show. They ended up climbing and playing at the playground. Good thing is, it is very clean.
After that we head to the restaurant for lunch. Food was quite good and that was nice.
Overall it was ok. Maybe our kids are just not into birds all that much. I think they had more fun at the Farm in the City as they had different types of animals there to see compared to this one.
My daughter is already potty trained. While waiting for her cousins to come, she wanted to use the bathroom and it was so far away at the other block. They didn't have any toilets nearby the entrance. We had to go all the way to the other side. Quite a long walk and down the stairs. Imagine if she couldn't hold it any longer? Yikes!
So I put on the diaper after she went to pee. Luckily I did because all the time in the bird park, we didn't see any toilets. Im sure they have it but it is quite a walk to get to one. We always have diaper as back up, in case she cant hold it while we are in the car or something.
