Best place to cycling

I went here just to cycling... The air here is very good & fresh. It also have mini animal petting zoo. For those who love extreme activity they also provide an extreme park here.

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 covering the whole park on food within a day) 2) There's a mini zoo inside the park. The kids would love it. 3) Relatively cheap entrance... More

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
