Visited as part of a tour. The gardens are well maintained with lots of cheeky monkeys popping up here and there. Worth a slow stroll to look at the magnificent trees.

Well worth a visit to these beautiful peaceful gardens- beware monkeys though - can be aggressive and keep hold of your belongings they are little thieves!

Entrance and car park are both free. If you want to have a walk or jog around this is the best place for you. Though there are only few plants inside the area, but you can still enjoy and have a walk and relax under a tree. There are also monkeys inside.

Bus 101 takes you directly to the gardens. A pleasant place to stroll and very peaceful by the lily pond. Shaded and cool, it's a great place to just sit and watch the locals doing tai chi etc. Early morning visits are best to make the most of the cool air.

The gardens are beautiful and so worth a visit. Use the Grabit app for a taxi...10rm from Tanjung Bungah. The no. 10 bus from Georgetown is very erratic and possibly not worth the saving of rm or the wait.
The gardens are free and the trails and various areas lovely. Black squirrels, monkeys and butterflies in good numbers. Good signposting and well-kept pathways...although you can hire a car to take you round. For me that’s missing the point of the gardens. Absolutely a must when in Penang. Good gift shop too. No WiFi so sort your ride home out before you go.
