1) 99 Wonderland Park in Tasik Sri Murni, Selayang

The 99 Wonderland Park is an option for you and your family to visit if you want to spend time on a pleasant walk, that is not in a shopping mall. This once abandoned lake has been transformed into a

23-acre recreational park decked with LED lights, the first of its kind in Kuala Lumpur. The view and scenery at the park is visually stimulating during the night, with all the LED lights on the walls, trees, railings and the Sky Fountain. The park also houses a variety of birds and animals - and you can choose to feed, pet or take photos with them while you exploring the place.

2) Sungai Pisang Waterfall Abseiling in Gombak
