There are times when you want to run away from all the noise and clutter and lose yourself in a world of lush greenery . I would rather see tall trees than high rise buildings .I hang out very often in parks and green spaces when I travel and I did the same in Malaysia. So here is my list of three favourite parks in Malaysia.

The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
Now, imagine a tropical rain forest right in the heart of the city with colourful avian beings flying around in a world of their own. The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is an absolute haven for bird lovers like me who can spend hours just watching them. Almost 3000 birds call this free flight walk in aviary their home as they spread their wings wide in this 20.9 acres of land.
The Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Garden
I was 21 when I visited this beautiful lush butterfly garden and I fell in love with it instantly. A little secret tucked away in the city, this is the largest ever butterfly garden in the world. More than 5000 colourful wisps of wings flutter around in this verdant landscape as you can watch them feed, mate and live in their own habitat.

Pulau Payar Marine Park, Langkawi
From green to blue, from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi, we make the journey from land to sea. Malaysia am told is planning to have about 50 marine parks, but this is one of the tourist’s favourites. While some of the uninhabited islands offer opportunities for diving, the park centre at Pulau Payar gives you a detailed information on the island. And while you are here, do not miss the hiking trails and check out the colourful reefs.
So which is your favourite park ?
