Malaysia is blessed with many long weekends and school holidays in 2021! With that in mind, there's no better chance to spend quality time with your loved ones. Whether your family enjoys visiting the best theme parks in Kuala Lumpur or exploring amazing outdoor activities in the city, there are many places you can go for a fun-filled day. If you're looking for a great petting zoo in Selangor, we have the perfect family-friendly attraction you should visit next.
Situated in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, your kids will enjoy every moment at Farm In The City, a one-of-a-kind concept that brings nature and animals together in a traditional kampung-like setting. Complete with a farm and fruit orchard, the animal-visitor interaction here is amazing and your kids can get plenty of real-life interaction beyond what their favourite animal books can offer.
The superstar of Farm In The City is definitely the adorable and fluffy alpacas! You can find them in the Savannah section, hanging out with other animal friends such as the friendly goats from Switzerland, the graceful Javan deer, and the cute Dusky Wallaby kangaroo.
If you think the alpacas are adorable, wait till you see the Falabella Horse galloping inside its wooden paddock. Known as the world's smallest horse species, it is said to be smaller than a pony! Since it has a weak backbone, the Falabella Horse is not suitable for riding but they're exceptionally approachable if you have yummy leaves to feed.
The sight of cuddly rabbits and guinea pigs can make anyone melt, and you'll probably feel the same way when you see these gentle creatures at the Pet Village. Besides having the chance to pet these animals, you can also keep their bellies full by feeding fresh vegetables. Sometimes, you can see the rabbits feast on a bowl of sliced carrots too.
It's a rare opportunity to get up close to adorable raccoons and you can do so at the Raccoon Feeding section. Did you know that raccoons have five tiny fingers similar to humans? It uses their hands to forage for food, and also collect delicious snacks if you hand it to them! These animals have adapted well to their environment and are friendly too.
...And these are just some of the exhibits you'll find! If you're looking for an awesome petting zoo in Selangor, look no further than Farm In The City! For more weekend adventures with your family, check out other amazing outdoor activities in KL to enjoy with your kids.
