We woke up around 0700hrs and would be visiting the KL Bird Park, which they say is the World’s Largest Free Flight Aviary. We waited for the Hop-on Hop-off Bus at Jalan Ramlee station till the first bus arrived and traveled to the KL Bird Park

Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is located in the serene and scenic Lake Garden, about 10 minutes from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. KL Bird Park is well known worldwide as “The world’s Largest Covered Bird Park” or “The World’s Largest Free Flight Aviary”. It is also the home to more than 3,000 birds from approximately 200 species of local and worldwide birds.
Sprawling approximately 20.9 acres of verdant valley terrain, bird park visitors will have an exciting experience of watching colourful and melodic birds perching and winging about about freely while relaxing in a natural and beautifully landscaped surrounding.

One of the KL Bird Park’s most extraordinary feature is all birds are let free in the aviary which resemble the natural habitat. With this type of free flight concept, birds are able to breed naturally in this unique concept bird park.

After our visit at the KL Bird Park, we got on the bus again, and headed to Petaling Street where we had lunch at Tang City Food Court, which is like a bunch of karenderia here in Manila, where you order you food at the stalls and take your seat at the table, and when your food is cooked, they bring it to you steaming hot. I ordered shrimp with rice and a coke. After lunch, we walked around Petaling Street looking for some good bargains and trying some of the street foods.

Petaling Street It is infamous for pirated clothes and accessories along with bootleg DVDs and CDs. Petaling Street however does not exclusively offer pirated products. Haggling is a common sight here and the place is usually crowded with locals as well as tourists.

The area has dozens of restaurants and food stalls, serving local favourites such as Hokkien mee, ikan bakar (barbecued fish), asam laksa and curry noodles. Traders here are mainly Chinese but there are also Indian, Malay, and Bangladeshi traders.

Got on the bus again and headed back to Suria Mall and got some last minute shopping, then took the taxi back to our hotel to fix our things. And then headed to Bintang Walk to get something to eat and some pasalubongs, then rode the monorail back to our hotel to meet a friend.

While they were chatting and catching up on things (with a bottle of Tiger Beer), I headed back the Petronas Tower to get my night shot of the tower, which I would not pass-off on this trip, and took a load of pictures of The Petronas Tower. Heading back to the hotel, I passed by the KL Convention Center and took a picture of the fountain in front. By around 2000hrs we were picked up by our cab and headed for the airport, checking in our bags and lazed around till our flight was up. Arriving in Manila at the wee hours of the morning and throwing our bags aside, we rested our feet and slept till late in the morning.

There were still other places we wanted to go and visit in Kuala Lumpur but our schedule did not permit us to, but would like to visit Kuala Lumpur again and see the other places that we did not get to visit.

Until our next travel, HAPPY TRAILS!!!
