Taiping Lake Gardens, Taiping

(4.2/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • Good place to walk around. Purposely detour to have a look of the Gardens, been years since my last visit. Help me to find some good memories. You can just spend the entire afternoon, relax, and enjoy...  more »
  • I've been to Taiping numerous times from when I was a child to now, 50+ years later. It's my most memorable place to go to, especially the trees and bend across the road to take a "sip" of the water.....  more »
  • A nice place to go for a stroll with its scenic view. The paths are lined with big trees and greenery. A good place to jog around with the view of the lake around. However, there are a lot of dried le...  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.
  • best place to hang out for yam cha in taiping. there's even a mcCafe here.
  • Good place for group gathering and often crowded.
  • NG... The burger is become smaller. McChicken Deluxe... Small. They make the burger randomly... Worse. But because the service is good enough, 2 stars rating is OK.
  • Near with lake garden n always serve with fast service
