KL Bird Park & Planetarium

Hi,

We will be in KL for 2 days in mid December. We are a family of 4 (kids 6y & 8y). Thinking of spending one day (will be a Tuesday) at KL Bird Park and Planetarium as these are close by. Does these got enough things to look at for a day? Are there any other parks or places of interest around these just to relax and kids to play.

We will be staying in Crown Regency Apartments in KLCC area. What is the best way to reach above mentioned places?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I have not been to the planetarium so I cannot comment. The KL bird park is a 2 hour (max 3 hour visit) and very enjoyable.

Easy taxi ride from your hotel.

The Petronas towers have a garden and children's pool area at its base. A nice place to spend some time.

Try to use the early and later part of the day as noon to 3pm is very hot outside.

Times Square has an indoor amusement park that is worth a visit.

enjoy

Taxi is your best bet for transport, although the quickest route can sometimes seem circuitous.

We spent a happy half day at the bird park last year with a 4 and 9yo, then headed to the Butterfly park. We Haven't headed up to the Planetarium. We were back in KL this year and also enjoyed the Islamic Arts museum, which backs onto the Bird Park - my wife and I would have enjoyed more time there, the boys a little less, although it was an enthralling couple of hours.

Also plan a little carefully - Friday prayers make taxis less available and travel around this area a little more difficult.

KLCC park is a good for a couple or hours, and the pool pleasant. We spent a morning in Petrosains science centre (inside Suria KLCC), then an afternoon in the park.

Hi Mal

Our little bloke enjoyed The Planetarium as they showed a movie on the domed ceiling which is quite good. As Inego said Petrosains is a good option and is the highlight for our now 8 year old on each trip back. Easy to spend 2 to 3 hours in there as so much is interactive.Also as mentioned above Times Square indoor fun park is good also. The hotel pool is always a favourite of our boy to relax and have fun and if you wanted to journey out of town slightly there is also Sunway Lagoon. Have a great trip.

Thanks for all the information. Bird Park seems to be a good place to visit. Will try Planetarium and arts museum if get enough time.

Again thanks for all the information.
