“Not impress”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I am not impress with this botamic garden and the traffic jam at times is not good. I wish the Malaysian Government can improve the road. Maybe then, more visitors can enjoy the garden more.

“Very pleasant”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We only spent a little time here but enjoyed the tranquility very much. There is a small train to take you around for 10 minutes or so and you can walk amongst the many monkeys. Take a picnic if you are going at meal time but guard your food carefully as the monkeys are very quick and quiet!!!

“More a fun park”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The day we were there it was crowded with people making use of the 'adventure' playground and the swimming pool. It was a bit of a surprise.

BTW, the monkeys are in plague proportions so keep an eye on your bags and things,

“Nice walk from the penang Hill Railway to here”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We walked from Penang Hill Railway to here, was about 5km and nice shady road, met lots of people walking in the opposite direction and saw a few monkeys. Nice gardens and frequent bus service.
