“Serene Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

This lake is very beautiful with many old trees with branches of unique shape. There are many birds on the trees. The background of the lake have beautiful mountains cover with mist in the morning yet it is very near to the town which is famous for its hawker's food.

“Gems of Taiping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Spent my whole morning walking around the lake, took me 2 hours to enjoy and appreciate it's beauty. Not much development around, just green and that's the way I would love a lake to be, unlike the West Lake in Hangzhou.

Would be a shame if the local government decided to start developing it's surrounding.

“Very big and beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

The Taiping Lake Gardens is certainly one of the most beautiful parks in Malaysia. The park actually consists of several lakes and ponds, flanked with rainforest trees and the occasional wildlife (perhaps courtesy of the Zoo nearby?)
We went for an evening stroll and it wasn't too hot at that time. Be sure to bring some water along and wear comfy shoes as the park is very big, we walked for an hour!

“walk & look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

traveling back from penang, saw the sign so drove in. the lake is a well maintained area. the more you look the more plants you see. the forest tree branches arch over sealed areas ,then lower close to grass & watered areas. ferns & diff plants grow ever where, open your eyes. on the lake, paddle boats or a powered tourist ride about the lake. take time go on a easy walk around the lake or area, take water, didnt see any venders.

“Lovely Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

A very pleasant place to stroll in the early morning or late afternoon. Excellent for bird-watchers.
One's enjoyment is much reduced by the young men riding their motor bikes on the footpaths. The local authority really should stop these pests!
