The recent news of Klang Valley moving into Phase 3 starting 1 October means most family-friendly attractions will be re-opening again.
So if you and your family are in desperate need of a time out from being cooped up at home, then good news is here.
Zoo Negara, Aquaria KLCC, and Farm In The City are all set to welcome you back.
Discounts, and new additions to Zoo Negara
Zoo Negara has had a bit of trouble in the last few years with a decline in visitors since 2015. They have however been proactive to ensure their animals are taken care of through different methods of raising money like animal ‘adoption’ and virtual tours.
The latest Move Control Order (MCO) seemed like the last straw. But finally, after months of uncertainty, Zoo Negara deputy president Rosly @ Rahmat Ahmat Lana said they are now reopening and eagerly anticipating visitors.
In celebrating its reopening, visitors to the zoo on Friday (1 October) will enjoy 20% off tickets with prices ranging from RM18 for Malaysian children under 12, RM23 for Malaysian senior citizens, RM45 for Malaysian adults, and RM88 for foreigners.
The first 500 visitors will also be given UNLIMITED access to the zoo from January to March next year, except on weekends and public holidays.
In addition to the deals, animal lovers can catch a glimpse of the new giant panda cub born in May this year. This is the third panda cub to be born in Malaysia and will be available to view from a special enclosure at the giant panda exhibit (that already has four giant pandas!).
There will also be 26 new exhibits including a new Tapir calf, a Reptile house, and four Ring-Tailed Lemurs
