  • It is an educational site for all things related to local herbs that is later made into spices. We forgo the guide and chose the audio device so that we could take our time to walk through the garden. It was fascinating to spend nearly 2 hours in the place and feel as if you haven't learnt enough! Opt to follow the guides if you have questions on the garden and plants. Do not come here and leave a bad review if you are not keen on the outdoors and you hate exerting yourself. It's not a mall with escalators for your use. It is nature in one of its well-preserved glory. Greenery, flowers, and the tropical forest of Malaysia is what you'll get.
  • This garden is one of the most beautiful gardens I have been to. You can choose to walk around for free or pay to use their audio services. We chose to take audio and there is sooo much material for the interested! The garden is not only filled with facts and plants from different spices and herbs it also has many many indigenous plants, and also talk about what the trade of spices meant for Malaysia. Make sure you make it to the tea serving place and take a break and drink the tea of the day!
  • It was a pleasant walk through a tropical garden with a possibility to buy various spices and other stuff afterwards. And if I was into it , I could have learnt a plenty of things about local flora.
  • Here is a bed place,just chic money from tour person. Nothing value to see at here just waste money。
  • Beautiful tropical garden with a huge collection of plants. Interesting tour with English speaking local guide.
