Kuala Lumpur Bird Park: “World’s largest free-fligh walk-in aviary”

That’s the tagline of this place. It certainly is nice to walk in between the birds (although some of the storks clearly didn’t like me, the marks their beaks left in my flesh are still visible) which are so clearly used to human presence. You can approach the birds closely and even feed them if you like. The bird show is a nice feature for children, but I somewhat disliked the bigger birds (eagles, owls) locked up in cages definitely too small for those magnificent beasts.

Thean Hou Temple: “Beautiful Chinese temple”

The temple is quite stunning in itself, but it is the location which makes this temple superb. The view from the terraces of the temple is gorgeous. I used a cab to get here, because there isn’t a metro station in the neighborhood.

Menara Kuala Lumpur: “Highest viewpoint in KL”

The view from this communication tower is absolutely breathtaking. Don’t hesitate to buy tickets to the highest level, you won’t regret it, because on this level your view isn’t blocked by reflections in the glass. You can stand freely in the outside air.
