Touted as the first fully covered park in Asia, the Langkawi Bird Paradise Wildlife Park is situated at the foot of Gunung Raya – approximately 15 minutes drive from Kuah Town.

Langkawi Bird Paradise Wildlife Park

This 5.5 acre park houses various types of birds; from the rarest to the most beautiful ones in the world – so they say. Parrots, Flamingos, Hormbills, peacocks and etc, they are all available in the covered park itself.

White Parrot

The entrance fee for an adult is RM 12 (if you show your MyKad) and RM6 for a child. Upon entering, you will first stumble upon various types of parrots. The colour ones, the white ones. They are on the woods posing minding their own business.

Further on, there is a small pond whereby white Flamingos doing their famous one legged pose.

Crocodiles

Pond

In the pond, the likes of mandarin ducks and flamingos are swimming around carefree-ly, living in their own world.

There are other sections as well where ostriches and donkeys are kept. And at the final part of the stroll is where rock crafting (with Chinese words) are displayed. It is also the same area whereby eagles are kept.
