Aquaria KLCC is the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia and is home to over 150 species of marine life which includes tiger sharks, sea snakes, blue rays, coral fishes and so much more. The main highlights of the aquarium is a 90m walk-through tunnel with a moving travelator that brings you through a giant tank that features an authetic-looking shipwreck and the colourful aquatic life that surrounds it.
Central Market, an iconic landmark in Kuala Lumpur is a popular tourist attraction. Just a short walk from Petaling Street, it used to be a wet market before it was revamped to a handicraft outlet. Now it serves as a focus point for the local artistic community with different boutiques, handicrafy and souvenir stalls selling unique artistic merchandises that can be brought home as gifts!
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is built specially for bird lovers. It houses more than 3,000 birds from 200 species worldwide including the crowned pigeon, blue peacock and yellow billed storks. What makes it unique is that it is the largest ‘free-flight walk in’ aviary in the world and is divided into 4 different zones, so be sure to get the most out of your feathery experience here.
After all that cycling, you must surely be starving. The best place to fill your tummy would be Alor Street (Jalan Alor). This street is filled with hawker stalls and seafood restaurants that serves some of the best local dishes from barbequed meat to noodles and desserts.
