I am not an animal lover, neither I do find that visiting zoo or anything similar to it is interested. However, ever read Zhishan90’s post about this Bird Paradise & Wildlife Park in Langkawi, I think I might as well pay them a visit since LY is quite an animal lover.
One thing good about Langkawi is, most of it’s major attraction is located by the roadside, hence it’s really easy to find and hard to miss out.
The entrance ticket is RM12 per person (show them your Mycard to get RM12 price), and just before you enter the park, you get to take pictures with some birds where the bird will stand on your fingers/hand. However, to purchase the picture cost a whooping RM35 (for a single picture) if I remember correctly.
Directly after you enter the park, you get to see a small stall selling packets of food. It contains different types of food in each packet, and then you will get to see how picky animals are on choosing their food.
The first bird we saw and get to feed is this cute little parrot. She love’s kuaci and will pick 1 from your hand, slowly open it and eat the nut inside and then continue to pick another from your hand.
She won’t bother to eat anything other than kuaci, and it’s really a great experience in feeding it.
The 5 arrogant mandarin duck that don’t bother to move at all even if food is in front of them, while the others will charge to the food.
There are many more species of animals here, even 2 crocodiles. You can’t fed them though, unless maybe you throw yourself in…..
However, the weather is fooling with us, it suddenly rain heavily while we are still exploring the park.
Poor poor ostrich.
The rain lasted for almost 30 minutes, which makes our visit not so enjoyable.
The rain slowed down after some time, and then we saw a large area full of rabbits, sheltering from the rain in their small house of course. We then decided to wait for a while here hoping the rain will stopped soon so that we can feed the rabbits and touch them.
It was then I noticed a poor rabbit did not shelter far away from us like what most others do. She’s a cute one and I kept feeding her with cabbage and carrots.
The rain then stopped and more rabbits came to us for food. LY then become a busy mum since she’s got so many children to fed.
In my opinion, the Bird Paradise & Wildlife Park is a worthy place to visit in Langkawi.
