Traveling with Kids? Theme Parks and Adventures in Malaysia!

Traveling with Kids?


Traveling to Malaysia with children is perfectly possible. In fact, most regions are perfectly suitable for children although you should always check beforehand to determine if a certain organized trip is age appropriate. This is a fantastic country for children with an enormous variation and so there is always something to do


Sunway Lagoon

The enormous aqua theme park called Sunway Lagoon, very popular amongst the locals and lots of fun as a day trip away from the big city of Kuala Lumpur. Located in Petaling Jaya, it offers a variety of watery rides and plenty of dry-land activities too. Built on the site of a former tin mine and quarry, it encompasses a total of five different zones – the water park, Scream Park, Amusement Park, Extreme Park and Wildlife Park.

KidZania is themed as a child-sized replica of a real city, including buildings, shops and theaters, as well as vehicles and pedestrians moving along its streets. In this city, children aged 4 through 14, work in branded activities. The children earn kidZos (KidZania's currency) while performing the tasks, and the money is kept in the KidZania bank for children to spend at the gift shop and on KidZania's activities.


Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

Within the beautiful Lake Gardens, you can find the popular KL Bird Park. Here, children will have a great time, and they will learn a lot about all the bird species. Especially popular is the World’s Largest Free-flight Walk-in Aviary; where you can see birds flying around you or even have birds sitting on your shoulder.

Legoland Malaysia is Malaysia's first international theme park that has opened in Iskandar Puteri in 2012. The parks are marketed to families with younger children (11 and under), and although the attractions include a number of roller coasters, the roller coasters are not as numerous or as extreme as those in other parks, and there is a greater emphasis on rides suitable for younger children. Legoland park includes a Lego miniland, a model village which includes models of landmarks and scenes from around the world, made from millions of genuine Lego bricks.


Hello Kitty Town

Hello Kitty Town, the first Hello Kitty theme park outside Japan, is a must for fans of this popular Sanrio character. The park's highlights include Black Wonder, a state-of-the-art interactive experience, and Kitty House, an iconic house filled with everything Hello Kitty from top to bottom.

Visiting the beautiful National Park Taman Negara is absolutely a highlight of your trip; though you will spot few big animals, there are lots of smaller ones, birds and insects. The longboat trip to the nature reserve on its own will be liked by the children. Especially popular are the Cameron Highlands, where your kids can also visit one of many tea plantations.

The islands of Langkawi and Penang can also be visited with children. At the Oriental Village at Langkawi Island there is an enormous cable car that takes you to the top of the mountain to see the beautiful panoramic view of the island. Penang has a tropical fruit farm and a beautiful butterfly garden.
