Family Attractions - Vacationing in Kuala Lumpur with the kids

If you are looking for a family vacation destination, Kuala Lumpur is among the best places to visit. It has plenty of things to keep the kids distracted and the adults entertained.


Kuala Lumpur City Centre

Commonly referred to as KLCC, the City Center ranks high in Kuala Lumpur attractions for families. Renovated recently, there is a large city park with plenty of attractions for the kids. There is a large park to stroll around, an aquarium with a wide variety of aquatic life, as well as a science museum that goes by the name of Discovery Center. KLCC is the perfect blend of education and entertainment. Everything at KLCC is stroller friendly, which makes it more convenient if you have toddlers or infants. The Discovery Center is among the most alluring, as there are many activities for kids here. Older kids can learn the science behind things, while the younger ones would still be able to enjoy the activities for the motor skills they provide.


Berjaya Times Square

Berjaya Times Square is one of the biggest shopping malls in the world. Because of its sheer size, there are many things to keep the kids distracted in this mall. While shopping is an important part of any vacation, it is often difficult to do a good bout of shopping with kids in tow. This can be solved with Berjaya Times Square. There is a movie theatre that you can visit, as well as a fair few restaurants that serve kid-friendly food. However, some of the cooler aspects of the mall that attract the younger visitors are things like "piano stairs". It is a set of stairs that play different notes of a piano as you step on them. This is one item that can keep young visitors entertained for hours. It is a good way to spend an evening, and as most of the popular accommodation options such as The Westin Kuala Lumpur are within easy distance, it can be fitted into any part of the day.



KidZania is a brand that is found in a number of countries. It is a place where kids can go to a city that is kid-sized, and pretend to engage in different careers of their choice. These careers vary from firefighters to doctors to bankers to cooks to pilots to journalists. Each of the "jobs" lasts for about 15 to 20 minutes, so there is structure to the way kids can engage in each of these activities. There is an important educational aspect to the whole thing too. For example, the career of a cook is preceded by a session on the importance of hygiene, and one on firefighting on the science of fighting a fire. The best thing about the activities is that kids can get paid for their jobs in the local currency. This wage can then be spent on cost inducing activities such as making a hamburger or even spent at the souvenir shop located within the space. The attention to detail in each activity gives a very realistic outlook for the kids while being interesting for the adults as well.
