Have you been to the KL Towers Mini zoo in Kuala Lumpur? Expectations is everything. I check out the outside of the zoo, not expecting much. It was afterall called mini, so it must be small? I was wrong!
After much persuasion from the kids and reluctance from me, we paid for the tickets to the KL Towers mini zoo. You see, our original goal was to go to the tower, not the zoo!
I had no regrets! I was pleasantly surprised that it is actually not so mini and has lots to offer for the kids! (Yes, there’s much more hidden parts at the back.) Talk about under promising and over delivering!
7 reasons why you should bring your kids to KL Towers Mini zoo.
🐊 The Kuala Lumpur towers Mini zoo may not have the variety which a normal zoo, it makes up with more unique animals.
🐵 You can feed the animals like tortoise, rabbits, hamsters, etc. That makes it all worth it. No need to buy food to feed the animals. We had such a great time interacting animals at Sunway Lagoon in Kuala Lumpur just the year before; this brings back all the great memories.
🙈 You can actually take photos with the parrots free. You should know that some zoos will make you pay or buy photos from them. There was no obligation and we are allowed to use our own cameras!
🙉 There’s ‘longkang’ fishing – What is it? Long long time ago, we will go to drains and catch fish. Nowadays, city dwelling kids will never have the chance because it’s too dangerous or dirty. They can have a chance to do this! Great way for the kids to learn to work together because it is VERY difficult to catch the fish. One to chase the fish, the other on the other side to catch.
🐒 there are unique white monkeys here.
🦎 you can carry an iguana if you are brave enough! I am not!
🐰 Fear not! There are many other animals which you can interact and carry!
The only thing I would complain about are the humidity (the kids are so excited, they didn’t complain! May not be so comfortable for those visitors who are not from tropical countries) and the mosquitos.
There is a package bundle deal with the KL towers which I think is pretty worth it. In the end, we didn’t even go to the Towers! After all, we already went to the Petronas Twin tower!
I think we spent almost half a day there.
