    this place is a cultural and religious place, if you are a traveller please be mindful of the locals that come and pray here.

    i loved the place, even tho i got a bit sad of rubbish lying around and monkeys live there and they grab things off the bins or floor like wrappers thinking its food and try to eat it.

    as a traveller i normally do my research so i dont show some disrespect into other cultures/religions. but ive seen a lot of travellers coming here barely wearing anything, like some have thongs and no undergarments and they wear a very thin top and shorts so you can literally see thru everything and the locals politely ask them to cover up with a sarong. i know its hot in KL but its no reason to follow the rules when you are visiting.

    i have attached the dresscode required below to help future travellers.

    A beautiful park over looked by the Petronas towers. A lovely place to visit, any time of the day. Park has play equipment for children and also water fountain which very nice.
    A nice place to have a relaxing walk in the centre of the city.

    I knew coming here, it would not be a match to Bird Paradise in Singapore. But i enjoyed it nonetheless. Birds are free to fly around. There are tons of peacocks wandering about, but it must have been molting season as the peacocks were dropping their feathers. The weather was incredibly hot in early April, we had gone morning when to be done by noon . You can walk under the shade of the trees which were plenty.

    The only negative is that we noticed holes in the nets in some areas which would enable birds to either escape or enter the aviary. It does look run down in some parts. The ostrich section was abit sad, vegetables were left in a basket so visitors could feed it, there was no one manning the place.

    My 9 year old son/ kid loved this. Key tips…it’s closed from 12-2pm*

    The feeding platform is just ok. Crowded and hot.

    Go to the nursery!* that’s air conditioned and you can watch the orangutans who are not yet ready for the feeding platform. They’re super funny and you’ll be far more comfortable.

    Cafeteria is closed, so find a restaurant close by. We were able to walk to Lake Bistro and Bar about 6 minutes away.

    Unless this stop is part of a bigger tour, otherwise there’s absolutely no need to book a tour operator for this. Simply take the 6am free Kuching Metro bus 103 from the city to the reserve, which takes 90min. There’s an app showing the bus times and -stops. You get a free city tour so what’s not to like. Then register using the QR code. Pay the fee (rm10 for foreigners). Unless you’re disabled, otherwise skip the shuttle bus in the reserve (rm5) and walk an easy 20min to the feeding platforms. It’s slightly uphill on the way there so the way back is even easier. Pro tips:

    - come early, before the official feeding time. This is not a zoo and the orangutans come and go as they like. I was 30min early at 8.30 and there were already three of them and a handful of tourists. More apes came later but also way more visitors.
    - May and June are good months to see the animals since its non-fruiting season. There’s less food available in the reserve so the apes are a lot more likely to show up for feedings.

    Since I was early and saw all the apes there were to see and took all the pics and vids I wanted, I took the 10am bus back to the city and was home by noon. Excellent half day trip. I’d strongly recommend going in the morning to stay ahead of the heat

    Pretty wow for an animal attraction in Penang. This is probably the best “zoo” in penang. But, of course, this is an butterfly and insect museum. The way the museum presented with a lot of information was really thoughtful.

    Enjoyed the experience as I was able to visit the various exhibits at the aquarium. Only thing that wasn’t that good was that there was certain areas that was warm despite having the portable AC.

    Would recommend going on a weekday morning during non public holiday/ school holiday period to avoid the crowd.

    We were planning to hike part of trail up the hill. Then after reading some info, it got clearer, it is for more experienced mountaineers, planning is essential for time, equipment, it is not for random trip but more days in Kinabalu park , the hike takes two days . For inexperienced people, the park below mountain is perfect enough, with restaurants and botanic garden 🪴 . For making a hike up there, you should spend preparation some months ahead.

    Wide beach and a good length, lovely fine sand. It’s quieter towards Casa Del Mar end but alas as others have stated, it’s become very busy with jet skis during the day and vehicles driving up and down the sand dropping & collecting them in the morning and evening. The cars / trucks don’t seem to care about people walking along the beach and often people have to jump out of the way as the cars try to go up the inclines. Also as the block footpath runs the length of the beach this is now used by mopeds to drive up and down all day long again forcing people to get out of the way. Lots of rubbish left on beach at sunset, but this generally gets cleared up the next morning or sadly washed into the sea. Construction taking place and some larger buildings being built, especially towards the Park Royal end where what looks like a rather large development is being built, Tropicana Cenang.

    Saw tons of proboscis monkeys and it was a wonderful experience with Mr Ardi 😃 Other animals we spotted were the hornbills! Mr Ardi can be contacted via whatsapp at +60 11-5335 8066

    Mr Ardi answered many of our questions about Sepilok fluently in English 😄

    I really enjoyed my visit here! We spent quite some time (from 09h30-14h incl lunch). We were there in the morning and there were only few people so it was very nice to be in such a calm place. Lots to do, nice if you can take your time for the visit and take some breaks during the walk to enoy the environment (there are several benches). There is also a small museum and a garden at the end, so quite some things to see and to do. We also had lunch here which was very good.

    First and foremost, it is a lovely green park in the middle of a crowded city. Its existence as an urban green space is its biggest value.

    A very pleasant place to walk or jog amongst greenery and get away from the concrete jungle. Some places to sit and rest in shade. Not many people despite my visit on a public holiday.

    Unlike most other botanic gardens around the world, there were very few signs with information about the plants. Very few signs and maps around the gardens to show where you are and what else there is to be seen. Some of the paths and shade structures were cracked and needed some renovation, though still very functional.

    Getting there on foot and public transport is possible, but requires determination because there are not many signs nor maps (not unlike many other attractions in KL).

    Nevertheless, a very pleasant place to visit to get away from the concrete and commercialism and crowds of the city.
