It's a lovely place to spend a few hours close to the nature

It's a nice place to be if you intend to pull away from the busy city life and getting close to nature. What to expect from this place: 1) It's humongous! (Doubt can finish... read more

A tropical forest environment. Good for cycling or walking with tracks especially in the cool forest . Other facilities like a pool, fishing, herb garden, cactus garden, flying fox and etc etc.

It's a nice place to be if you intend to pull away from the busy city life and getting close to nature. What to expect from this place: 1) It's humongous!

The place has a free shuttle bus which takes you to the 4 seasons house and the mini zoo. As for the rest of the place, you can rent a bicycle but be aware that if you want to get the cheap bicycles, the queue is very long. As is the case with most attractions in Malaysia, this place is... More

It's better to go with friends or family. There are not much to explore but it's nice to rent a bike and cycle around the garden and stop if you want to rest or look at animals and flowers or trees. There are thousands of rare plants throughout the garden and tall huge trees everywhere. The cooling breeze and fresh... More

If you want to have a tree top experience then try Skytrax, as for the rest of the place all I have to say is 'wasted opportunity' poorly maintained, let to degrade into nothing more than a decent road to ride a bike around. They have missed a trick with the vast area the gardens occupy they could make something... More

My boyfriend and I went for a bicycle ride in the park. The price is reasonable RM5.00 per hour. Saw some team building activities going on. They have flying fox for adult and kids. Fun outdoor place. Next time we will go for picnic by the lake.

we wanted to visit the four season house and it was closed. The cultural village looked deserted, my daughter did not want to alight from the shuttle because the surrounding looked scary. We only enjoyed the rice field. I guess those who love trekking in jungle may like to visit this park. Garden of herbs looked good but my daughter... More
