Looking for public parks in KL, PJ and Shah Alam where you can go for a run?

With the gradual easing of restrictions, fully vaccinated dwellers of the Klang Valley can return to a semblance of normalcy, including dining out at selected restaurants. According to the latest SOPs, however, booking a table isn’t the only activity you can set out to accomplish; public parks are once again welcoming joggers who simply yearn for a breath of fresh air. 

Here is a list of public parks in KL and other neighbourhoods within the Klang Valley where you can stamp your feet literally.

Located in the quaint suburb of Ara Damansara, this leafy park has a range of recreational facilities, including badminton and basketball courts and playgrounds. The primary attraction, however, is the beautiful body of water festooned with blooming lotus flowers. While this isn’t a dog park, many residents undergo evening strolls with their canine friends.

Among the largest in Petaling Jaya, the Kelana Jaya Park can be reached by cars via LDP or a short walk from the Glenmarie Station on the Kelana Jaya LRT Line. Boasting three lakes, this expansive park features jogging tracks and monkey bars. It offers opportunities to spot some wildlife whilst also attracting anglers looking for a good catch. The adjacent Petaling Jaya Stadium is a popular spot with joggers and cyclists as well.

Centrally located in Petaling Jaya, just off the bustling Federal Highway, this park functions as one of the city’s green lungs. Easily accessible via the Taman Jaya LRT Station on the Kelana Jaya LRT Line, all facilities in Taman Jaya revolve around the lake, which is further spruced up with numerous fountains. The nearby Dataran Petaling Jaya, flanked by an A&W outlet, offers opportunities for team sports such as football and rugby, albeit not allowed by current SOPs as of writing.

This pocket park intersecting some of Petaling Jaya’s most established neighbourhoods of SS2, SEA Park and Taman Paramount is lined with running tracks on its perimeters. Next to the park is the Taman Paramount LRT Station on the Kelana Jaya LRT Line. It is the best place in Petaling Jaya to incinerate some calories before rewarding yourself with delicious treats at neighbouring cafes.

Overlooking the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque, a landmark of the administrative capital of Selangor, get in for some photo ops. Situated in the civic centre of Shah Alam, the Shah Alam Lake Garden counts a pair of lakes as its main attractions. Canoeing and kayaking can be done here once the SOP permits. For now, however, you can still take full advantage of the paved running tracks encircling the lakes.

While choices for Cheras folks are more limited, the Permaisuri Lake Garden more than makes up for it with a futsal court, football pitch and picturesque lake. One of the better maintained parks in KL, it serves as a refuge for water birds, while its manicured lawn makes a terrific picnic spot. It is Bandar Tun Razak’s best-kept secret.

Shutter bugs regularly congregate at Titiwangsa Lake Gardens for its unrivalled vista of KL’s ever-growing skyline. Completely overhauled a couple of years ago, the park reopened to visitors with a range of new attractions and facilities, including spacious running tracks to help you maintain physical distance.

Here’s another gorgeous park where you can run in KL. Located in Kepong, you’ll find that the park is frequented by families in the evenings, which adds to the entire atmosphere. Seasoned runners will appreciate the specially dedicated running path in the park that extends over 3.8km in a loop.

The Perdana Botanical Gardens is another popular haunt for runners. Formerly known as Lake Gardens, it’s a large area in the city with lush greenery. You’ll find running here to be an absolute breeze — not because it’s easy, but because all the trees and plants will make it breezy. There are also several canopied spots in the gardens that make for good resting spots and to take some pictures for social media. After all, did you really exercise if it wasn’t documented on Instagram?

Bordering one of the great hiking trails in KL, the TTDI Park offers several loops from flat terrains around the lake to the more physically challenging undulated courses. Wildlife is abundant here with resident mobs of monkeys frequently on the look-out for treats and a lake housing innumerable terrapins. The park is a stone’s throw away from the Taman Tun Dr Ismail MRT Station on the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.

Bukit Jalil Recreational Park is a great place for you to try different sorts of terrains when running. The area itself was developed for the 1998 Commonwealth Games, and if you head to the International Garden, you’ll see different areas specially designed to represent different countries. Stay on the tarmac trail or go a little off to rake in more kilometres.

Eight KL parks you should not miss

What healthy activity is fun, free and for the whole family? A visit to the park, of course! While cities are often considered as concrete jungles, many do in fact have large open green spaces for city folks to take a breather. Cities like London and New York have their own iconic parks. What about Kuala Lumpur? Here are some of the parks in Kuala Lumpur — some more well-known than others — that you can visit.

 

1) Ampang Hilir Lake Garden
115, Jalan Ampang Hilir, Desa Pahlawan, Kuala Lumpur

The official VisitKL website by the Kuala Lumpur Tourism Bureau says the former tin mine — located just beside the Middle Ring Road 2 before Jalan Ampang — has a 2.7km circumference, making it just nice for a healthy and not too intensive stroll. The park also allows cycling and has a total of three different playgrounds situated around its picturesque lake.

 

2) The Central Park, Desa ParkCity
Desa ParkCity, Kuala Lumpur

Located in the award-winning township in Kepong developed by ParkCity Holdings, The Central Park is popular with both residents and non-residents. It has tree-lined 9ft-wide jogging paths and walkways that surround a lake. The park is also pet-friendly, so you are most likely to spot pet owners taking their dogs for a walk. After a workout, you can cool down at The Waterfront commercial centre adjacent to the park where you will find some delightful dining varieties on offer. Two other parks — The East Park and The West Park — are also in the 473-acre freehold township.

 

3) Kepong Metropolitan Park
Middle Ring Road 2, Kepong Metropolitan Lake Garden, Kuala Lumpur

If you drive past this 95ha park along the main road, you will notice colourful kites of various shapes and sizes flying in the sky, as the park is a hot spot for kite-lovers. According to the official VisitKL website, most barriers and trees have been removed to ensure clearance of at least 100m for the kites to take off in the huge field which runs parallel to the main road. There are also other activities that one can do at the park such as cycling, playing football and even go on a boatride on the 57ha lake.

 

4) KLCC Park
Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Kuala Lumpur

Probably the most attractive park in Kuala Lumpur, this 50-acre green lung is a favourite among locals as well as tourists, thanks to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers next door. Children will love the 2-acre playground and wading pool, which are thronged by families every weekend. You will also find office workers jogging around the park after work on weekdays, since the location is right smack in the middle of office towers located in the heart of the city.

 

5) Perdana Botanical Garden
Jalan Kebun Bunga, Tasik Perdana, Kuala Lumpur

Formerly known as Taman Tasik Perdana, this 226-acre park is Kuala Lumpur’s first large-scale recreational park. It has many unique components including a forest tree collection, exotic species collection, spice garden, deer park and herbarium. For more information on the gardens and plants in the park, check out the park’s interpretation centre. Visitors can also pick up some gifts at the souvenir shop.

 

6) Permaisuri Lake Garden
Jalan Tasik Permaisuri 2, Bandar Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur

Well known among those living in Cheras, this 40ha recreational park features a lake, fountains and outdoor gyms. It is also ideal for those looking for picnic spots as there are concrete stools and tables provided that are shaded by the many huge and mature trees there. You usually spot marathon runners training here as the park has a naturally hilly terrain as well as a labelled trail that allows runners to track their running distance.

 

7) Taman Tun Dr Ismail Park
Jalan Haji Openg, Kuala Lumpur

Tucked away in a corner of the Taman Tun Dr Ismail neighbourhood, this charming and lush park attracts families from the surrounding areas as well. It is crowded almost every evening and especially so during the weekends. Many also come with their kids to feed the fish and terrapins thriving in the lake. Other features include exercise areas, playgrounds and a suspension bridge. For those who are into Pokemon Go, there are quite a few hot spots there to catch Pokemon!

 

8) Titiwangsa Park
6, Lorong Titiwangsa, Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur

This is a popular place for remote-control car enthusiasts because one of its special features is that it comes with a drivers’ platform and seating area for spectators. The 57ha park also offers a children’s playground, tennis courts, jogging tracks, exercise areas and a stadium. If all that sounds like it involves too much activity for your liking, you can just sit and relax on one of the benches while enjoying the view of the beautiful lake with the iconic Petronas Twin Towers in the background. The best part of all this is it’s free.

This charming national park surrounds the imposing Mount Ophir which looms dramatically at the heart of the jungle that coats its slopes. Myths and legends abound about the origins of the mount’s name and fine mist cloaks the higher realms of its slopes, hiding its mysterious past alongside it.

Paths snake their way through the lush undergrowth ever upwards and the view from the top is breathtaking as you are greeted with panoramic views of the forest below. A wide variety of birdlife resides in the rich and verdant canopies that cover Gunung Ledang National Park. Waterfalls also dot Mount Ophir and one of the most popular are the Puteri Waterfalls which offers visitors the chance to cool off after an arduous trek in its refreshing and welcoming pool.

11. Penang National Park[SEE MAP]

Located in the far northwest of the country, Penang National Park has a huge range of activities on offer for tourists to enjoy. A biodiversity hotspot, the park is home to an astounding array of fauna and flora that coat and cover every available surface. With beautiful beaches galore and fun and wild treks through the dense forest; there truly is something for everyone in this amazing national park.

Whether it is lounging on the deserted beaches, taking a boat trip to marvel at the fish below or setting up camp to stay the night, Penang is a haven of peace and calm which will certainly soothe your soul.

Within the boundaries of the park lies a Canopy Walk which offers you the chance to see the forest from a different perspective as you walk along the flimsy walkways fifteen meters above the ground.

10. Endau-Rompin National Park[SEE MAP]

Named after two rivers that flow through it, Endau-Rompin National Park is coated in pristine tropical rainforest that makes for some delightful trekking. This ancient landscape that dates back some 240 million years is well worth exploring on your visit to Malaysia due its beautiful scenery that look like something out of Jurassic Park.

Rivers, pools and waterfalls dot the park’s premises and stumbling upon them after a tiring trek through the rainforest is an unforgettable feeling. With the second highest peak in Malaysia, this national park has an abundance of natural wonders that will astound and awe you with their magnificence.

Slowly wandering along the paths that are dwarfed by the enormous trees on either side is a liberating experience as you feel free and unfettered, alone in the wild.

9. Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park[SEE MAP]

An idyllic paradise, the five islands that make up Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park are simply divine. Speeding through the beautiful blues waters to the islands, you can be forgiven for imagining that you are daydreaming such is its splendor.

Varying in size, all of the islands have lovely beaches to relax on and the surrounding coral reefs make for some fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving. Although the park can get crowded, this only demonstrates its popularity and testifies to the incredible attractions on show.

The lush verdant forests that slowly give way to dazzling white beaches that slip into the waters around them make these islands a must-see in Malaysia.

8. Lambir Hills National Park[SEE MAP]

Although it is small in stature, Lambir Hills National Park definitely punches above its weight when it comes to all that is has on offer. A biodiversity hotspot that is home to a veritable menagerie of animals and birds both large and small, this park is perfect for nature lovers who will adore all that there is to see and do.

Trails and paths delightfully weave their way through the undergrowth of the forest and, in the shade of the canopy above, birds and monkeys play amidst the foliage. With the trees reaching up to eighty meters in height, you sometimes feel dwarfed by the oppressive forest that hems in all around you.

To feel a breeze on your skin and escape from towering trees, make for the highest point in the park, Bukit Lambir, which also offers up some amazing views. With waterfalls and secluded pools scattered around the park, there are a wealth of beautiful sights to discovery in the lovely and peaceful Lambir Hills.

Whether you are an avid birdwatcher, a hiking aficionado or passionate about snorkeling; the facilities on offer are astounding and as such each visitor is free to pursue their preferred pastime as they please. Stunning beaches line the shore and thick impenetrable jungle rears up until the sand prevents it from encroaching further.

Take to the water and enjoy a memorable boat trip; looking back at the coast will offer you an unbelievable panorama of this beautiful stretch of coastline. At night, adventurous visitors can charter a boat to partake in some crocodile sighting!

6. Niah National Park[SEE MAP]

Wow! This impressive national park is well worth visiting for the spectacular caves contained within its boundaries. The complex of caves has signs of human habitation dating back over 40,000 years and as such it is a very important archaeological site in Malaysia.

Pottery, axes, jewellery and other various tools from across the millennia have been found within the caves testifying to their long-lasting appeal to humans as a place for shelter and protection. The caves themselves are stunning to explore and the distinctive geological formations are marvelous to behold.

Outside, the thriving fauna and flora stops suddenly before the shade of the caves unable to continue their advance. The juxtaposition of the warm and welcoming life-filled forests with the bleak and cold caves makes Niah National Park a special place to visit.

5. Gunung Gading National Park[SEE MAP]

Magical to behold, the dense and oppressive foliage of the jungle hems in on either side of you before giving way to breathtaking views of the surrounding area as you reach one of the park’s lofty peaks.

The mountainous area has numerous waterfalls and streams hidden among its forests and these offer visitors a refreshing break after the arduous treks. While the scenic park is well worth visiting in itself, the main draw for visitors are the incredible rafflesia; the world’s largest flower. These huge and unique flowers are special to see and are the undoubted highlight of Gunung Gading National Park.

4. Bako National Park[SEE MAP]

With beautiful and distinctive rock formations and sea arches twisting their way up out of the water, Bako National Park is home to some absolutely delightful sights that belie its small size.

The snaking paths of the park make their way through a number of lovely landscapes that are just waiting to be explored as dense rainforest, pristine beaches and stunning waterfalls make up just some of its scenic views. Only accessible by boat, the journey and arrival at the incredible and secluded beach of Bako make this national park well worth a visit.

3. Kinabalu National Park[SEE MAP]

Tropical urban parks in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Challenging the attitudes of park management teams towards a more environmentally sustainable approach

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ufug.2020.126605Get rights and content

Highlights

Tropical urban parks have potential towards ecosystem service delivery, but this requires a change in current planting design and management.

More environmentally sustainable approach may receive resistance as it contravenes the desire to retain ‘gardenesque’ landscapes.

Park management and maintenance teams believe change will be difficult due to pressures from the visiting public.

Attitudes towards a more environmentally sustainable approach varied somewhat across the different tiers of management.

Abstract

In some western cultures, landscape practitioners are adapting the design, management and maintenance of urban parks in response to climate change and other pressures. The aim is to provide more robust and resilient solutions that expand the contribution of parks to ecosystem service delivery and give greater economic efficiency. However, urban parks in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are still maintained, through traditional ‘high-intensity’ horticulture, which consumes significant resources and imposes a growing financial burden on the City. This paper draws on data from interviews with urban park management teams across different tiers from selected urban parks in Kuala Lumpur. Through photo simulation of alternative design and management regimes it investigates their response to a more environmentally sustainable approach, which reduces intensive maintenance and increases planting complexity. Results suggest that whilst there is an appetite for change, parks in tropical climates present different challenges to those in temperate climates where these ideas have typically been developed and applied. The seasonal change in the tropics between wet and dry seasons may be profound but is arguably less visually dramatic than temperate climates in terms of seasonal colour, changing visual permeability and amount of leaf litter. Increasing planting density and complexity in the tropics may also have unanticipated implications for personal safety when compared to temperate latitudes because of the consistent but much shorter seasonal daylight hours and absence of any extended twilight. This paper explores what appetite exists for park staff to move towards a more environmentally sensitive design approach. Attitudes are compared across different management levels, including those of ground staff who will be tasked with implementing this change and communicating it to the public directly. The data suggests that whilst there is some enthusiasm for more environmental approaches, especially amongst senior management, there are also significant reservations across all levels of park management.

Perdana Botanical Garden and Bird Park

For a few days in Kuala Lumpur, we walked twice in the Perdana Botanical Garden, we really liked everything there. Beautiful nature, non-standard palms, streams, bridges and favorite animals. Strangely enough, there are practically no tourists, 2-3 people and us. The entrance is free.

The animals look quite happy. Ducks swim peacefully in a lake with a fountain. Squirrels deftly run through the trees, they cannot be kept up by the camera.There are also many birds in the Perdana park.

Rabbits and pygmy deer in cages

There is a good area for large deer where you can hand feed them or just watch their daily behavior.

Deer are not afraid of people, you can feed something edible from your hands and pet

Home and spring furnishings in the Perdana Botanical Garden.While walking, we discussed with Slava what would happen if this park were in Moscow. Probably, there would be crowds of people walking, cops on horseback, cigarette butts lying in the grass, merchants would have already placed their stalls everywhere, perhaps the entrance would have been paid. This line of thought gave even more satisfaction from the park and the fact that we are not in Russia, but in Malaysia.

Evening walk in the park

One day we visited here in the evening.Walking in the garden of Perdan in the evening is not scary, there are no people at all, but there are lanterns everywhere, everything is illuminated.

It gets dark in Malaysia very quickly as elsewhere in the tropics. Perhaps it’s time for us to go to the exit.

When we reached the exit, it was already night.

How to get to Perdana Park

Address: 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Free admission
Hours: 7.00 – 20.00
Website: www.klbotanicalgarden.gov.my

You can get to the park by metro or taxi. Use Uber, Grab, or a regular metered taxi. We speak to the taxi driver “Perdana Botanical Garden” and you will be taken to the entrance.

How to get there on your own by metro: get to the KL Central station, and then walk for 10 minutes. We decided to do just that and find the park ourselves. Here are the instructions:

We leave the KL Sentral metro station to the station building -> turn towards McDonald’s -> go straight and go up the escalator -> go out through the glass doors -> right and to the end of the building, where there will be a ground crossing -> cross the road -> further along the path under the flyover 100 meters and cross one more road -> to the left (there will be a business center on the right) -> in front of the bridge we cross the road that goes down, and we go further along the bridge -> at the end of the bridge we go down the stairs -> we go past the bus stops -> then to the left across the road -> further straight to the underground passage, which is the entrance to the park (on the right there will be the building of the national museum).

We made this map to help you, because the first time this task was not easy. Getting lost at the central station is as easy as shelling pears. We asked about 10 people how to get through. Half of them did not even know that there was such a park here. The other half of the respondents were very surprised that we go there on foot, and not by taxi. But somehow they managed to find the way. The park was very close, only 5-7 minutes walk from the metro.

    90,000 Kuala Lumpur Malaysia in one day.

    In addition to the most famous landmarks, such as the Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur has some less famous, but nevertheless very pleasant places to stay. For example, the Planetarium!

    In addition to space exhibits, there are all kinds of flight devices in the planetarium that you can touch or climb into the landing capsule (very tight). Every day at 11 and 13 o’clock, films are shown in the cinema hall with a domed screen on top. The seats themselves are reclining. In general, it’s very cool, sometimes you just feel like an astronaut! Admission is free, cinema is about $ 4.

    Park in Kuala Lumpur also deserves a separate story. It is located 5 minutes walk from KL central (where buses from the airport or aeroexpress come). Better to go on the navigator. To suddenly find yourself in the jungle in the center of a metropolis – from this you experience very strong and pleasant emotions! During the day, the park is empty, in the evening it is filled with people jogging and walking.
    There are several fountains in the lake.


    Many tall old trees where birds live.There is also a playground.


    Chestnuts in Kuala Lumpur !

    In my opinion, it is very unusual to eat baked chestnuts in Chinatown), but how delicious! They are baked on coals right on the street and sold in sachets by weight from $ 2 for 250 g.

    Water in Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia.

    Yes, Malaysia has wonderful tap water! And everywhere. What’s in Kuala Lumpur, what’s on. Penang, on about. Langkawi, in Kota Kinabalu on the island. Borneo. Of course, you cannot drink it, but the hair from this water becomes very soft, easy to comb and curls a little.And this is without any shampoo and balm! Drinking water – delicious and mineral – is sold in bottles. In general, everywhere in Asia, buy water for drinking only in bottles and bottles.


    Tea .

    This is a must purchase in Kuala Lumpur). There are many specialty shops in Chinatown with quality Chinese tea and ceremonial utensils. We, residents of Bali, buy tea in Malaysia or Singapore when we fly out to extend our Indonesian visa. This is how we buy good tea every six months!

    Hotels in Kuala Lumpur.

    Hotels in Kuala Lumpur, to put it mildly, do not correspond to the photos on the sites), so it is best to book them not in advance, but to orient yourself on the spot. Rooms are always available. The largest cluster of budget hotels in Chinatown. Just go to them and choose according to your budget. I liked this hotel – Chinatown Boutique Hotel – and only $ 35! And from this area it is convenient to walk to the sights (Minara TV tower, Petronas towers).


    Food in Kuala Lumpur.

    I often hear that food in Kuala Lumpur is delicious and cheap. And I mean foot courts. It’s up to you to decide whether there are plates that are washed in a common basin right on the sidewalk or still reach a decent cafe, where it is not much more expensive, but for sure, everything is in order with cleanliness. They cook quickly and, in my opinion, delicious. It is best to choose dishes from the menu with pictures, otherwise you can order something unexpected).


    Shopping centers in Kuala Lumpur.

    There are many of them here. If you wish, you can spend a day in Kuala Lumpur in one of them. And it’s cool, unlike the sultry street, and the food is okay. There are shops with well-known brands as well as local ones. In Malaysia, they produce very nice and cheap knitwear. This is also one of my must-haves). By the way, if in Russia the sizes are usually small on sales, then in Asia the sizes XL and XXL are usually sold with good discounts.


    Massage chairs.

    This is an unexpected and wonderful opportunity to sit and relax for 15-25 minutes with health benefits. They stand at airports, shopping centers, train stations, and sometimes in offices. I was skeptical about this “entertainment” until I tried it. The cost is ridiculous. From $ 1. Pay in small bills straight to the bill acceptor in the chair. It is most convenient for 1 ringit (3 ringits is just the minimum cost and about $ 1). If you “sit up” after the end of the session, the chair will begin to vibrate and squeak unpleasantly.


    Chill in the airport and on the bus.

    This is a very serious feature not only of Kuala Lumpur, but of Asia in general, which can dump you for a couple of days with a temperature. I have a warm fleece jacket for this case, which I actively use from the entrance to the airport or bus). Just an irreplaceable thing when traveling in Malaysia!


    Taxi.

    If you don’t want to move around the city on foot, feel free to jump into a taxi.All cars are equipped with counters and do not specifically roll circles (I checked with the navigator). The taxi drivers themselves are polite and do not get it with questions. The rides are inexpensive, as the distances are short, but sometimes you can get stuck in traffic, so watch the situation on the road.

    The main thing in the journey is to smile by yourself, as Asians instantly copy your behavior and mood!

    90,000 Water Park in Kuala Lumpur. Feedback, photo and video

    In this short post I will tell you about the Sunway Lagoon Waterpark in Kuala Lumpur, which we visited during our Formula 1 trip to Malaysia.

    How to get to Sunway Lagoon Water Park in Kuala Lumpur

    You can get to Sunway Lagoon Water Park by KTM Komuter train from KL Sentral Central Station of Kuala Lumpur. Buy a ticket to Subang Jaya Station and go down to platform number 5. The fare is 2.14 ringgit.

    When you arrive at the indicated station, ask any passer-by for directions to Sunway Lagoon. In about 10 minutes you will reach the water park at a leisurely pace.

    Our impressions of the water park in Kuala Lumpur

    Entrance to Sunway Lagoon Waterpark costs RM120 for adults and RM90 for children and seniors. Opening hours: from 10 am to 6 pm. Also on the territory of the water park there are special electronic booths where you can leave your belongings. The cost of renting one cabin is 20 ringgit for the whole day.

    The water park in Kuala Lumpur did not make any very vivid impressions on us, but, nevertheless, we had a great day there and we can definitely recommend it for everyone who will travel in Malaysia, especially with children.There are not very many water slides, but, in principle, it is quite enough to roll off to a state of complete fatigue.

    In addition to water attractions, there are many other interesting places in the Sunway Lagoon Water Park, which are also included in the admission price. In particular, there is a grand canyon for kayaking, a 5D cinema, a maze of fear, an amusement park, a quad bike ride, archery, and a small zoo.

    We were everywhere, with the exception of kayaks, there was not enough time for them.We especially liked it in the labyrinth of fear. For 30 minutes you walk through the catacombs in complete darkness, and various zombies jump out at you from all sides. In our group, Nika and I walked first, but all the brightest emotions went to those who walked in the middle of the column. When you walk past the next window, from which someone should potentially jump out, this someone, don’t be a fool, skips the first pair so that everyone else relaxes, and then jumps out. So walking in the middle of the column turned out to be much more frightening.Children, of course, should not be taken there, the place is really creepy.

    We also liked the boats that rotate 360 ​​degrees. A very funny and loud attraction, especially when there are many girls in the boat.

    In general, the water park in Kuala Lumpur is a great place to have fun with the whole family, as well as get a charge of positive emotions and test your nerves on dizzying rides and a maze of fear. The main advantage of this place is a wide variety of entertainment for every taste, which will definitely not let you get bored.

    Perdana Botanical Garden and Deer Park

    A trip to Deer Park in Kuala Lumpur turned into a three-hour obstacle quest for Arinka and me.It turned out that the reindeer enclosure is part of the giant and very beautiful Perdana Botanical Garden (Taman Tasik Perdana or Lake Gardens) . That day we went around most of it in search of the cherished deer. On the way, we found fruits with a foul smell, alien mushroom trees, balloons with Russian words, Malay newlyweds and a huge gecko. Deer were also found … However, first things first.

    After a wonderful day in the Bird Park, the next day it was decided to continue the animal theme and take Arinka to Deer Park .Sasha was working, so we took a taxi (from Chinatown there is only 7-8 ringgit – that’s $ 2.5) and went with Arina alone. The taxi driver knew very little English, at first he brought it to the Bird Park. The inscription on a piece of paper Deer park did not help, I had to draw a deer in the same place. The Malay grandfather broke into a smile and took us back a little, to one of the entrances to Perdana Botanical Gardens . Then he said to go on foot. So we went.

    A small stop for a photo near the fountain-waterfall, and we will move on.

    Malaysia is a Muslim country , so there should be prayer rooms in a large park. What if prayer time comes just during a walk in the park?

    Passed a little, asked the Europeans who were walking towards them (obviously tourists), if they know where Deer Park ? The tourists said that they walked along this road to the end, at the end there is only a lake, there are no deer. Yeah … Well, what to do? Arina again pulls to the Bird Park, but we have already been there, now we need to show her the deer.

    We turned a little to the right along the road, and went to wander on. Found bamboo thickets. Arinka asked to photograph her, promised to smile.

    We met Malay boys and asked them about deer. They said that we must go to the road where we saw foreigners. I had to return to the previous course. But after 10 minutes of me, I again doubted whether we were going right. We sat down to rest on the bench. A rather large gecko rustled in the bushes – with a tail about 50 centimeters long.And why should he be small? There are many tasty things in the park, and the Malays in Kuala Lumpur do not eat lizards, unlike the Vietnamese mnongs in the Daklak province.

    We passed a little more along the road and decided to turn right again. We asked a couple of lovers where the Deer Park was. They waved us in general to the other side of the park. We went there. There are many such couples in lake parks. They sit quietly next to each other and are afraid to move. After all, Islam does not allow you to publicly show your feelings; in the parks there are even appropriate signs hanging.By the way, I saw a similar sign on the bus, only there was also a warning: “Don’t spit!” Does this mean that Malays love to spit on buses? Or is it for tourists? …

    Botanical Garden Perdana – beautiful and well maintained. It is divided into small themed pieces: a park of butterflies, orchids, hibiscus, corners with rare species of trees, lakes.

    We arrived at another such lake and finally found the center of civilization – a cafe.The prices are symbolic – freshly cooked noodles with chicken – 4 ringgit ($ 1.3), a half-liter bottle of water – 1.5 ringgit ($ 0.5). During lunch, we suddenly saw a couple of Malays in national clothes. They had a wedding photo shoot. I wanted to snap them a couple of times with my long lens without looking up from the meal …

    But they suddenly started posing for me. It turned out somehow inconvenient, I photographed the bride and groom with a fork in one hand and a camera in the other. It seems to have turned out quite well …

    By the way, in this park there are photo sessions under every other tree.Here’s another couple.

    We had lunch and went on looking for deer. On the lawn right next to road Arinka found a bunch of balls , and on them the inscription in Russian: “I love you”! I wouldn’t be surprised at such a find in some Vietnamese Nha Trang, where Russians are full. But here, in Kuala Lumpur … What a pleasant coincidence. Guys, whose balls, confess! (Arina in the photo depicts a smile like a balloon).

    There are simply gorgeous playgrounds in Kuala Lumpur.The Perdana Botanical Garden is no exception. What is in the photo is only a tenth of the complex.

    Children’s slides and labyrinths are not only beautiful, but also safe. Everything is closed, you won’t fall out of nowhere.

    By the way, in our Primorsky Park in Mariupol, where Arinka and I are constantly walking, there are two whole hills. They are the same, with the handrail half falling off. Moreover, they are dangerous – there are no side walls. Usually, when the kids are on the slide, mothers stand below with their arms wide apart and watch so that no one falls off .In Kuala Lumpur, no one stands under the slides. Parents enjoy free time in the shade while their children are busy.

    One aunt on the site said that we went in the wrong place and in order to find deer, we need to return to that road at the very beginning of the park. What a news! We listened to my aunt – and within 10 minutes we were at the next lake. Arinka found some kind of fruit. Or maybe a vegetable … But no, it fell from a tree, which means a fruit.

    Arina decided to take the fruit home and present it to her dad.Put it in my backpack. I will run a little ahead and say that already in the hotel in the evening I could not understand for a long time: where does the smell of very stale panties come from. Disgusting smell, just killer . Turning everything upside down, I found the source – this is my backpack. The fruit had time to ripen there and let the smelly juice , soaking everything that lay next to it … The smelly was immediately divided into small parts and flushed down the toilet, and learned another lesson – not to pick up unfamiliar and suspicious fruits in Asia on the streets!

    In the same place, next to a fruit stink, they found such trees, similar to giant mushrooms.It turned out that this corner is called Topiary Collection, and these trees are nothing more than huge bonsai (remember, I wrote about miniature bonsai in Vietnam?).

    Three hours after the start of the walk, Arinka and I wandered into some completely remote corner of the park. We sat down on a tree stump, upset, and we were running out of strength. The Malay grandfather runs towards him. We asked him for directions to the Deer Park, and I said that we had been looking for him for three hours. Grandpa took pity on us and took us to the park. And he was almost always there! If we hadn’t turned off the road for the first time, but had walked another 100 meters, we would have ended up right next to the reindeer enclosure.

    Imagine our shock: three hours to search for a park with deer, finally find and stumble upon the “Closed” sign! What a bad luck. We entered the administrative building nearby, woke up the sleeping guards, asked to let us go to the deer.

    The guard was very emotional when he learned that a three-year-old baby had been going to the reindeer for so long. But he didn’t let me into the park anyway. But brought half a bucket of stale bread to feed the horned .

    Of course, everything would be different if I knew that taxi drivers do not drop off right next to the Reindeer Park, and the way to it must be found by .Here, I downloaded a map from the official website of the Botanical Garden. Maybe someone will come in handy. By clicking on it, you will be taken to the official site of the park. There is a lot of information about each corner separately.

    Useful information:

    The park is open daily from 7 am to 8 pm. The park is free to enter, but you will need to pay to enter some of the mini theme parks.

    In order not to walk and quickly explore the entire park, you can use electric cars that run throughout the territory.You can also book your own personal guide. To do this, you need to call in advance by phone +603 2021 0812 (guides work from 10 am to 5 pm).

    P.S. From Kuala Lumpur we have already moved to the island of Langkawi , and even found a house for rent for the next three weeks. All the details with photos and videos in the next post in the coming days!
