Two days in Kuala Lumpur allow you to look beyond the top sights to areas such as Brickfields, Little India, and Chinatown, and to feast on the city’s unforgettable food. You’ll also have time to take in some of the spectacular natural attractions that await outside the urban borders. Here’s how.
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park (Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur))
920 Jalan Cenderawasih, Kuala Lumpur, 50480
Throughout the day, Kuala Lumpur Bird Park invites visitors to watch bird shows and hourly feeding times. A visit to the park typically lasts an hour, leaving plenty of time to check out other nearby attractions on the same day. Typically, tours that visit Kuala Lumpur Bird Park also include a stop at Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park and the Orchid Garden, both of which are reachable via a short stroll through Perdana Botanical Garden.

Things to Know Before You Go
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is a must-see for nature lovers and birds enthusiasts.
With some steep hills and many steps, the bird park isn’t wheelchair accessible.
Be sure to visit a feeding point to watch different birds eat.
Combine the bird park with a visit to the Butterfly Park and Orchid Garden.
How to Get There
The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is located in the Perdana Botanical Garden, in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. To get there by train, hop off at Kuala Lumpur central station, a 5-minute walk from the park. Alternatively, most of KL’s hop-on hop-off bus tours go past the park. If you want to visit the National Mosque before or after, that’s a short 10-minute walk from the bird park.
When to Get There
As with many of Kuala Lumpur’s top attractions, the early morning is the best time to visit the bird park: With far fewer crowds, you’ll feel like you have to expansive bird park all to yourself. If you want to catch one of the bird shows, you should arrive around lunchtime to secure a spot.
Delve Deeper into Malaysia’s Natural Heritage
If you want to discover more of Malaysia’s natural biodiversity, take a day trip from Kuala Lumpur to Taman Negara, the largest national park in the country. With luck, you’ll spot monkeys, deer, and exotic birds.
