Located in the wettest city in Malaysia, the Lake Gardens are very green. They are very well-kept and lovely. You can jog for 10km around the lake. There is a zoo, a war memorial (taiping was occupied by the Japanese in WWII). Definitely worth seeing if you happen to be in the north of Malaysia.

I was on a nostalgia trip visiting Taiping because I had lived there 1959-1960. The Lake Gardens were pleasant but 50 years later the trees have grown and make a majestic backdrop to the Lakes. It is a real green haven. We went for a short walk late afternoon the day we arrived and were surprised to see so much... More

In the early morning you can see many peoples jogging, walking, exercise at the lake garden. The air is so fresh and the view just nice.

You can spend hours and hours there. For us, it took two entire days of our trip just to linger,... More

I still think the best time to catch the lake is early in the morning when there are less cars and the lake is calm. The reflection on the lake is so beautiful especially when it reflects the blue sky.

Nice scenery, fresh air. Love the trees. Went there for Taiping Run, the scenery was great. Love the trees and lake there, inhaled lots of fresh air during the run. Love it. It was a very refreshing run that we were able to run around the lake garden. Saw lots of joggers around during the run. This was my second... More

So refreshing to walk around in the morning. You can hear the tiger roar from the nearby zoo and little parrots perched on top of nearby trees.

Wonderful charming trees, lotus ponds and grassland. Fish, abundant dragonflies and kingfishers live here. A photographers delight! only drawback: the idiots who throw rubbish in the lotus pond!
