Ampang, Selangor, Malaysia
The National Zoo is perfect for a visit if you're traveling with kids. The zoo's grounds are quite lovely, with wide and tree-lined pedestrian boulevards. A recent refurbishment has left the zoo looking more pleasant than it has been in years yet much can be done to improve it still. A little train (painted like a tiger) is perfect for kids and parents who aren't keen on exploring the zoo on foot. A must see is the Savannah area- home to zebras and giraffes. You will get to see these animals in a setting that somewhat resembles their habitat. Also pop by the Orang Utan enclosure and the aquarium. The Zoo Negara or National Zoo is almost 50 years old and has over 5446 specimens from 476 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. All animals are kept in spacious enclosures that closely resemble their habitat. Ticket prices are low.
