Kuala Lumpur Part 3 – Birds and Bukit Bintang

After Thaipusum, I took a day to rest, and then decided since the weather was better than my first visit and my hotel had such a comfy bed that I should extend my stay to 10 nights and blow off Ipoh, the next town I had planned on visiting. This time I stayed in Bukit Bintang, a much more upscale area, close to restaurants, malls, and more of the sights.

First, I made my way up the KL Tower to get a view of the city. I went early in the morning and pretty much had the place to myself.

After taking in the views, I visited the upside down house, which seems to be a thing in every city here. It was included with the tower admission because I added on the hiking trails in the park below. I’m not sure I would recommend it, but I now I can say I’ve been in one.

On my way to the nature park, I found my second World Peace Gong. The first one I came across was in Vientiane, Laos. I tried to Google how many there are, but couldn’t seem to find a good answer, so I guess I’ll just leave it to chance and see how many I stumble upon.

The hiking trails were a bit run down, but they had some fun hanging bridges, and it was nice to get a little nature in the middle of this big city!

A couple of other days, walked through the botanic gardens, which are free, and a great space to get some exercise and hear the birds chirping. I even saw some baobab trees. I was excited, because as a kid, my favorite book was The Baobab Car by Jacqueline Held and Arnaud Laval. If you haven’t read it, it’s worth checking out! It’s about a man who never cleans his car, and the wind blows all sorts of things in, including a baobab tree seed. It grows and attracts all kinds of nature which he loves and lives in harmony with.

Some days, I took it easy and just ventured out to find street art and try street food in the pop up markets that showed up around the office buildings. I can’t say I loved a lot of the items, but it was a good place to try some different foods without a huge commitment. It is amazing how popular these little stalls are for the people working in the area!

A highlight I didn’t expect was the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park which houses one of the world’s largest free flight aviaries. I’m actually a bit scared of birds, so I wasn’t super excited about this, but someone had recommended it, so I thought I’d give it a try. I absolutely loved the yellow-billed storks who were roaming all over the park. Check out the video below of a bitchy female who was not happy her man was not sharing his fish :-).

This woman was NOT happy and let everyone know about it! The drama went on for about 20 minutes!

And, that’s a wrap on Malaysia for now. Maybe sometime I will return to visit Borneo, but had to head back to Thailand for my long awaited yoga retreat! See you again soon!

Peace, Hugs, & Love!

    1. Hi Kimber, Thanks! Yes, I’m enjoying most every moment, trying to remain present and be grateful for the opportunities that come my way! I hope all is well with you! Are you looking forward to spring? Hugs!


  1. Absolutely amazing! The sights you’re seeing will alter your brain chemistry forever! I love seeing Malaysia through your eyes. You should put all these wonderful pictures and interesti descriptions in a coffee table travel book! Speaking of books..The Baobab Car is not easy to find. One copy on A for $128.00, not available at any libraries near me, and out of stock on used book sites. It must be rare and fabulous. I’ll keep my eyes open. Maybe it will find its way to me. Take care, my dear friend. Love You!
