  • The place is a garden with many butterflies, but inside there are numerous shrines containing fish, frogs, turtles etc in confined spaces and with very little water. Many are close to death and live in pitiful condition. Some fish were Yes and no 5 cm of water in which to swim. Really sad, avoided.

  • The park in KL where you can see the hibiscus, the national flower of Malaysia, where many of it grows here. There is a colonial building which is inside the park which it's experience resembles similar to Kundasang Memorial Park.
  • A great place to wander through while in the area. Be aware there are not as many drink stops etc for the very hot days but if you are appropriately prepped you can spend many hours wandering through and enjoying the sights, views and flowers.
  • Wonderful place!
  • Wonderful place where hundreds of types of Orchids can be seen. Beautifully landscaped and maintained park.
  • A beautiful stroll, even for non-orchid specialists. A little oasis in the middle of the city.
