Farm In The City is a kampung (village) style farm in Seri Kembangan (20 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur). The park has more than 100 exotic animals. It is mostly cage-less and the animals are allowed to roam freely. Beside animals, it also has more than 60 types of tropical fruit trees and plants in the park.
I brought my 2 years old twins to the Farm In The City last week and our experience was good because we got to see the animal up close and feed them. My twins were excited but scared because they are seeing all these animals for the very first time. After an hour in The Farm In The City, they started interacting with the animals slowly. Although at 2 years old, they can not remember the animals, this is a good exposure for them, and we definitely going to visit this place again. The activity that my twins like the most was longkang fishing, we spent about half an hour just watching them trying to catch the little fishes with the net.
When I was a kid, I used to run around my grandma's kampung with my cousins. We got ourselves dirty and sweaty but it was quite a fun filled childhood for me. Unfortunately, my kids don't get to experience it because I am a paranoid parent and really worry about my kids safety. This Farm In The City experience allows them to get close to nature. Moreover, the kids get to see a lot of rare animals in the Farm In The City.

The variety at the restaurant near the entrance is better than the one inside the farm. Like any other theme parks, the restaurant charges are higher than restaurants outside the park.
The toilet in the farm is also built in Kampung style. Relatively clean but the floor is wet. Well this is how a kampung toilet is like.
