#1 of 9 in Things to do in Taiping
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. Make Taiping Lake Gardens part of your personalized Taiping itinerary using our Taiping route planner.

    Love this place. The lake is beautiful. Uplifts the spirit as soon as you see it. The lovely old trees add a charm like no other to this place. The branches that extend to provide shade over the road,...  more »

    This is more a social gathering center, more like a physical Facebook rather than a restaurant. Average age of patrons is about 15 YO. So you can expect NOISE. Good thing as always is the morning menu: combo of McMuffin & coffee. As per the custom here in Malaysia, McDonald's do not serve milk jiggers (milk packet in small plastic cups) per order of your coffee. Instead they give you this non-dairy substitute bullshit called "creamer". Hint: non-dairy creamer is flammable. Look it up on YouTube. Anyway this stuff is so gross, they shouldn't be serving it in a restaurant where a meal costs twice as much as what you'd ordinarily pay at average air conditioned coffee houses. So if that's regular milk to Malaysians, imagine what goes inside a milkshake.
