Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide

Kuala Lumpur Kids Attractions

One might not think that Kuala Lumpur would be a children''s playground, but on closer inspection, visitors travelling with their families will have plenty of opportunities to explore this fascinating and cosmopolitan city with their children too. With a plethora of attractions, shopping malls, playgrounds and activities, figuring out where to begin will be the hardest part! The iconic Petronas Towers is a must for those with young children. The dizzying heights and breathtaking views over the city from the skybridge are thrilling to children of all ages. Once back on terra firma, a trip to nearby colourful Chinatown is in order where cultures meet and cheap toys can be purchased - but make sure you keep a close eye on the little ones in the crowds. Visit the Lake Gardens where plenty of wide open space and will allow kids to let off some steam, and if that''s not enough, a boat ride across the lake should keep them quiet, while the Butterfly House and Bird Park will captivate young and enquiring minds. Take a walk through the National Park (Taman Negara) and marvel at the flora and fauna and indigenous bird life- a great way to tire out the kids so mum and dad can enjoy a night to themselves on the town. Too hot to handle? Take the kids to one of the Kuala Lumpur''s many water parks to cool off, such as the Sunway Lagoon or the Desa Water Park, and when the sun goes down, take the kids on the unique and unforgettable Fireflies tour, where they can travel by boat down the Selangor River to watch fireflies lighting up the mangrove trees.
