(4.4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll along the paths and bridges that crisscross the peaceful scenery of Taiping Lake Gardens, the oldest public garden in Malaysia. Established in 1880 during British colonial rule, this garden features rows of ancient angsana--"rain trees"--which stretch their branches over the water. Take a gentle pedal boat ride across the lake, blow off some steam at the roller-skating rink or the playground, and wander through the fragrant tulip gardens. The park contains ten artificial lakes and ponds, as well as a lotus pool.

  • Beautiful garden. Perfect place for scenic shots from all sides. For picnic and camping enthusiasts, go beyond the main lake area to the mini warerfalls and riversides e.g. Burmese pools where the water is clear and clean. Nice place to take a dip in the cool mountain stream and mini pools in hot weather. No toilet facility in these areas. Better bring along your sarong for changing clothes.
  • The lake garden lives up to its reputation of being the oldest & most beautiful lake garden in Malaysia. I had an enchanted journey jogging around the lake's many trails and was amazed to see so many health & fitness conscious Malaysians exercising there in the morning.
  • The view is nice and of course you can find the tranquility here. Always reccommended if you guys want to take a wedding picture and selfiess of course
  • Beautiful natural landscape, second only to Perdana Lake Gardens. Amazing. The only bad thing is that there are no barriers to forbid moronic motorcyclist from riding along the walk path. These are lazy local Taiping people who do not care to walk inside the lake garden. MPT please take note!
  • Nice weather.must go place in Taiping. Always bring an umbrella, it may rain because Taiping is the wettest town in Malaysia. IT RAINS EVERYDAY IN TAIPING GUARANTEED.the Burmese pool and war cemetery is nearby too.
