We got to the park after 3.00pm and managed to rent bicycles easily. I found a bike that fit my stature, which made the entire cycling experience more enjoyable. We were asked to return the bikes by 4.30pm as they close at 5pm. Rental starts at RM10 @hour with a RM5 premium for the newer models. Thereafter, it is RM1... More

Taman Botanical Shah Alam's public amenities like Internal Tram transport need to be improved pertaining to scheduled pick-up times frequency in order to reduce visitors 'S waiting time. Also the absence of convenience stalls selling snacks and refreshments and seating tables.

I have been there for International indigenous festival. The program was good and they had couple of performances from different indigenous ppl and tribes. Tammy botanic every year host this. The one way they can improve by sharing more info about tribes rather than asking for help furiously.

I started to train my running in the past month, and come to this rainforest park to enjoy nature. The parking is a flat RM3.00 but it was worth it. I ran for about 3km with slopes and troughs and it was a great work out. The atmosphere is tranquil in the early morning from 7am, with inserts buzzing and... More

It is nice when you trying to refresh yourself, going into the wood, enjoy the greens, but you did not want to travel far (assuming you are staying around Klang Valley area). This is one of the great place to go. A lot of things to do in there. You can do cycling, swimming, Kayaking, fishing, flying fox, skytrex, and... More

Very close to the city, easy access. Enjoy a great day out. Walking, Bicycling, Fishing and Picnicking (watch out for the monkeys). Great day out for teenager kids, they can cycle around on a very safe and smooth roadway. Breath in some good fresh air while visiting many different gardens, animals at the zoo, or try and catch a Tilapia... More

This is a huge park where you can jog, cycle and walk around in a Tropical Forest. Bikes are available for rental ranging from RM10-15 per hour and every subsequent hour is RM1. The roads are car free except for park vehicles so cycling and walking is really safe. Only 'problem' is that there are a lot of uphill and... More
