Get to know some wildlife

Get up close with Xing Xing and Liang Liang, the giant pandas at Zoo Negara or witness diverse marine life at the sprawling Aquaria KLCC. If your kids prefer winged creatures, head to the KL Bird Park and the KL Butterfly Park

Quiet moments at a library

Often overlooked in this digital age, libraries are a treasure trove of information. Head to the National Library, which is the first library to be equipped with a Samsung SMART library, to borrow a book or just hang out in silence. You can borrow also books and toys from the Petaling Jaya Community Library.

Lake Gardens

Picnic at the park

Pack your picnic basket and head to your favourite park. We like the Perdana Botanical Garden for its space, KLCC Park for the water park and the TTDI Park for the great little stream that runs through it.

Volunteer at an animal shelter

Teach kids the importance of volunteering by bringing them to PAWS or the SPCA to help out with the animals and find out what really happens at these places. Not only will this impart valuable lessons to kids, it’s also a good way to spend time with the family.


Wall climbing

This is something everyone should try at least once and Camp 5 is a brilliant place to start. Enrol the kids in the Try Climbing Session for beginners and join them if you dare. There’s no age restriction but parents must be present when children under 18 register for the first time.

Things to do

Brave the holiday crowds and ride the towering slides and Lazy River at Sunway Lagoon. Book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
