“Probably the best Lake Garden in Malaysia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The last time I visited Taiping Lake Garden was perhaps 25 years ago. I remembered the huge rain trees the ringed the lake - those rain trees are still there, only even more massive. I enjoyed wondering among the bamboo stands, palm bushes, and towering trees around the scenic lake, with the always cloudy Bukit Larut serving as the backdrop.

You don't see many people (unless you are at zoo) so one can really relax and enjoy moments of peace and quietness. Bring a book and laze around to chill out. Be prepared for rain...

“picturesque view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Mild rolling hills,lots of trees,fresh air, a good place to while away some time in Taiping after meals.There are also lotus plants in the lake.The scenery was however marred by rubbish thrown into the lake.

“Unkept Gazebo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The lake gardens were breathtaking as always, its the Gazebos' were filthy with leftover food & rubbish left by inconsiderate people. We wanted to sit and enjoy the beautiful lake... the trees etc. but we left.

“A place you must visit in Taiping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We are lucky enough to choose a hotel nearby the lake, the view from the hotel is really nice. Morning we went to the lake to walk ard, the air is fresh, people jogging and exercising ard the lake, everybody seems to be happy and healthy. They greeted us whenever passing by. Very good feeling when you are there.

The trees, accompanied by the lake, make up a beautiful picture. The lake is nearby various attractions, the zoo and further a bit the maxwell hill. One should visit this lake garden, if not you are not considered been there.
