Kuala Lumpur Bird Park (Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur) is the largest free-flight aviary of its kind, with 20 acres (8.1 hectares) of space for more than 3,000 birds to roam. Home to iridescent blue peacocks, flamingos, hornbills, ostriches, and many more bird species, this Malaysian park is a popular choice with nature lovers and families.

Typically, tours that visit Kuala Lumpur Bird Park also include a stop at Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park and the Orchid Garden, both of which are reachable via a short stroll through Perdana Botanical Garden.
