  • Our tour guide was pretty friendly. Overall, a good experience, I guess it determines on the season. A bit pricey, tried to eat as much from the buffet as possible at the end to compensate costs. Shopping gift store at the end also has some interesting items. So many fruit trees of different species it is awesome, sort of flyby to fast as more could have been ventured upon. Good talking points. Words of caution, 501 bus rides here, and going back down the mountain was crazy, I don't understand why going down at 90mph and constantly stopping is faster than just going down at a normal moderate safe speed.
  • A quaint orchard part way up a mountain. Organized tours available to learn more about the various fruits grown there. The tour ends off with a fruit buffet, where you can have your fill of most of the fruit available. The souvenir shop sells a large variety of produce, as well as other products like ointments, creams and cosmetics.
  • Excellent guides. Facilities have all been updated. Wide range of plants and trees. Well worth a visit.
  • If you are interested in something different and indeed educational in the area of tropical fruit, or just want to be above the heat at sea level, this is a good place to go. Avoid peak tourist time such as June, July, August and Chinese New Year, as it gets very busy...
  • The fruits is fresh and sweet. Recommended for foreigners to come and try Malaysian local fruits
