For some reason, I come away from Kuala Lumpur with a feeling that one trip was enough. No more noise and busy urban beehives, with quiet places and relaxation in mind for future vacations. What is making me feel this way? Have I forgotten about what happened at the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park?
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
All bad thoughts come down to the heat and honestly, you’d understand if you’ve ever visited Kuala Lumpur. Walks through the city bring up memories that compare nicely with visits to the local sauna, only there’s no cold pool to cool off after sweating out yesterday’s mistakes. Kuala Lumpur has humidity so relentless that I’m out of clean shirts by day 3, though I tried to keep 7 in mind.
Escaping the Urban Jungle!
Kuala Lumpur’s Lake Gardens are the best spot for shade-seekers, with the KL Bird Park and other attractions tucked inside. Billed as the World’s Largest Free-Flight Walk-In Aviary, this park offers shade and a look at thousands of birds living naturally.
Tourist spots in many countries can seem expensive compared to everything else but parting with the extra money doesn’t feel bad at the KL Bird Park. For such a hot day, escaping to a tree-covered aviary to see tropical birds in their natural habitat is a double bonus.
That day in the park brings one closer to KL’s almost limitless green space and public parks away from the urban jungle. As soon as we enter, a huge peacock was waiting and ready to greet us but had no interest in me and my wife. We were just another tourist to him or her and a few minutes later, I see that peacocks sort of run the place.
Regardless, the novelty never wears off and after each one we pass, the more I admire these beautiful creatures. Peacocks aren’t the only draw in the KL Bird Park and everywhere we turn, a new and different species is waiting and not afraid to come have a look and sniff of us. This is THEIR territory and rightfully so.
I want to go back!
It’s too bad that Malaysia had other stuff to do because that Bird Park could’ve been the only thing and I wanted to do at the time Shade and the huge varieties of bird songs reminded me that it was possible to leave the city’s heat and chaos for a bit. If you’re ever in the city, the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a comfortable and fun escape from the heat!
