Farm In The City, Selangor, (Jalan Prima Tropika, Pusat Bandar Putra Permai, 43300 Seri Kembangan, Selangor, Malaysia) is a conversation park that combines the elements of wildlife and nature with city living. As the name of the park portrays, FITC is located in the city, just behind a hypermart, surrounded by well developed residential areas.
Despite being in the city, FITC adopts the design and lifestyle of a traditional Malaysia village and aims to provide educational and recreational values to visitors. Specially designed enclosures which mimic the animals’ natural habitats allow the animals to roam freely. The farm is one of the most interactive farms in Malaysia. Visitors get to experience first-hand encounters with the animals. You can get up close to feed, pet and take close up photos with almost all the animals.
FITC have 11 different habitats, such as the Turtle & Tortoise Farm, Reptile Cavern and the Vegetable & Fruit Farm among others. It is home to more than a hundred species of animals. Some unique species include the world’s smallest horse, the world’s smallest kangaroo and the world’s rarest white crow. The farm keepers are helpful and knowledgeable, sharing much interesting information about the animals. In addition, FITC also features a Longkang Fishing area. Longkang fishing is an old school activity, where back in the kampong days, young children will try to catch fishes in a drain.
