We recently spent a week in Kuala Lumpur. It’s a very nice place that I highly recommend. Be sure to take some day trips out of the city to some local attractions too.
My highlight was the KL Bird Park. I really wasn’t expecting this to be my highlight. But they have done it so right.
The main area consists of a large forest in the city that they have basically slung huge netting over to create a giant aviary. It contains 3000 birds (200 species) that are free to fly around and do whatever they please. We saw birds hunting for fish, birds making nests – everything you would expect wild birds to do. And they have become accustomed to humans – they don’t mind people walking about. Perfect for photography.
I highly recommend it.
So, here are some of my photographs. I’ve tried to identify each species. I’m no ornithologist so feel free to correct me!
