A visit to Farm In The City (FITC) @ Seri Kembangan

Last weekend, my family visited a themed petting zoo called Farm In The City (FITC, 城の农场) located at Seri Kembangan.

This petting zoo was just opened in 2012, and has been gaining publicity with its family-friendly attractions. I think one of its main objective is to let urban children in Klang Valley to have a place to experience kampong-style nature. You can find quite a lot of bloggers already shared their visit and photos to FITC.

The location of FITC is near Giant Seri Kembangan and Pasar Borong Seri Kembangan. It is nearby the LDP highway and beside it is a new business area with newly developed shoplots (still under final stage of construction), making it more prominent with its name.

We took a family package at the price of RM99 for entrance of 2 adults and 2 children. The package includes the entrance wristbands for the day, 2 packs of soya milk, 2 bottles of vitagen, a calendar, 2 certificates of visit for the children, and a RM10 food voucher redeemable at the restaurant near its entrance (same day, on family set meals only).

We also bought 2 tickets for pony ride (RM5 each). Pony ride is for children only, and the ride is only for one small circle (less than 2 minutes). You can take photo while the kid is on the ride.

FITC has a number of animals which we can have close encounter with them, including some exotic animals such as big land tortoises, river turtles, small crocodiles, etc. Animal foods are provided without additional charge for us to feed some of the animals, including rabbits, horses, fishes, tortoises, birds, goats, deers, etc. Children can also experience kampong-style small fish catching activity with net and small bucket outside the rabbit feeding area. There are 2 ponds at its center with fishes, ducks, gooses, swans and other water habitats.

There is also a small little farm with some crops, a well, a cow and a dog.

Our visit in FITC took around 3 hours. It is a fun and joyful half-day family activity.
