Farm In The City

Before stepping into Farm In The City, I can clearly see the happy cheerful faces lighted up with excitement secretly waiting to explore this entire place. Families with strollers and people walking around was a norm scene at the entrance, while the some made it to the queue trying to be quick as possible to join the excitement. Animals were visible even before we purchased our tickets. We can already see Ostriches, cows and goats just a stone throw away from the entrance gate. The heat did not stop many from visiting this place despite being a public holiday.

Located at Seri Kembangan, which took us about 30mins - 40mins car ride by Waze, it was worth the journey since the road was cleared and not much traffic during this holiday. Known as the Malaysian Village Themed Petting Zoo, Farm In The City holds on to its pride of being in The Malaysian Book of Records for the most number of animal species in a petting zoo! I am not surprised seeing that indeed, it does hold on to its promise. A unique theme park that combines the thrills of wildlife with the beauty of nature. Built in a specially-designed Kampung environment to resemble a typical Malaysian culture. Once we purchased our tickets, we were each given a map, RM5 discount voucher and wristband before entering.

We are allowed to touch, feed and play with more than 100 species of exotic animals. Most are cage-less and roaming freely. We were just in time to catch the Parrot Show at 11.30am. Making our way to Kampong Mahmood, we were joined in by many others who were equally and more excited than us. According to the trainer, parrots were trained for 6 months to understand and communicate with humans before it can repeat what we say. Fun fact indeed. It was also blazing hot as the day gets into its peak of the heat. We made it through the show which lasted around 20 minutes.

We then made our way to feed the Racoon and Pony. Food for animals can be purchased via the animal food machine, but first we need to purchase the token for the animal food machine via the token machine. It is located specifically to cater to the animals within the vicinity. You may find this around the farm as you explore along. Note that the charges are different too depending on which animals you intend to feed.

Since then, we decided to go anti-clockwise around the farm. Exploring through the exhibition hall, twilight creatures, jungle walk, pet village and much more. I find the Loris, Peacock, Porcupine, Deer, Alpaca, Meerkat and Wallaby being the outstanding of all. Being in a hot climate country, these animals sure adapt well in the heat. Not sure if it is their natural habitat though. Nevertheless, it is a great place to be to see and learn more about this animals.

We spent close to 3 hours in total exploring the farm. If you're hungry or thirsty, you may have a quick bite at Kampung Cafe located next to Pet Village & Longkang Fishing. A simple set of Pepsi/ mineral water and corn will cost you approximately RM6 onwards. If you're up for some real food, there's a restaurant at the exit / entrance right next to the photo corner shop. A meal set can cost you RM18.90. It is pricey, eat if you must. Otherwise, there're shops outside offering you cheaper option.
