It is the most famous lake in Malaysia for its calmness, beauty, tranquil environment. Lush green landscape facing peaceful lake with thousand years old tree as backdrop, the scene can only be found in the oil painting and appearing in your eyes. No words can explain how beautiful it is. Attached picture for your judgment. Come here during evening. Park... More

The lake gardens were formed when a former tinmine was abandoned. After some landscaping it is now a nice place for an afternoon stroll.

One of the most impressive of lake gardens in not only Malaysia, but in the whole of Asia. Its ancient trees are a sight, while the lake and environment gives you a really serene feel.

Large open park with lots of paths that lead around the ponds. We ventured towards the path around the zoo and could hear all of the animals. The trees along the main street were a picture must, hundreds of years old reaching into the ponds. The bugs were not too bad. A hawker center is opposite the park with great... More

Nice big park with a beautiful lake. Easy free parking, only 5 minutes away from the town and zoo. You can even walk there, the traffic is quite relaxed. If I'm a local I would come here every weekend, sit down by the lake and have a nice pastry bought fresh from the town bakery, and a slow stroll with... More

For Long-tailed parakeets, check the trees on the corner as you walk down from Sentosa Villa and cross the street to the park. Pics and map on my blog - Miles to the Wild.

Very beautiful garden indeed, but better visit in the early morning where it is not so hot for your visit. Drive around the garden and stop wherever you like. There are a lot of old tree where you can see monkeys. Though it is really good but not a must for your holidays.
