The botanical gardens are very nice to wonder round, there is lots of shaded places and a few places to buy water/ food. The entrance is not very well sign posted for the walking tracks but once you find them they are nice.

Perdana Botanical Garden is open 365 days of the year. It is created in 1888 and opened on the 13th May 1889 just after one year by Straits Settlers Sir Cecil Clements Smith.. In the colonial times, as being located in the heart of the city, this served as a place of refuge from the hustle and bustle. It is... More

Beautiful garden to walk around and get away from the noise of the city centre, plenty of places to sit and enjoy the scenery.

The grounds of the gardens are well maintained and there are lots of species to see. It makes a great place to walk as there are few lakes, ponds with fish as well. There are bikes for rent so one could do that too.

Very good place to walk around if you have time..in the brochure, they advertise carts but there was none..the place was huge and half day won't be enough. We went to the orchid garden, it was small but well managed. Only common variety of orchids can be... More

If you have kids, then surely visit this botanical garden. It has a large kids activities area and acres of greenery with varied plants & trees. It is also a nice place for jogging o simply strolling through in the mornings/evenings. Would suggest avoiding going on a hot day or in the afternoon.

There are lots of walkways through a good variety of plant types which makes for a very pleasant stroll. We though they were well maintained with labels on most plants to help identify them. Our only disappointment was that the mouse deer enclosure seemed empty - we saw no animals at all. Note, the entrance is not particularly well sign... More

Would come here every once in awhile, depending on the weather. An awesome place to have an evening walk/run, picnic with friends & family, do homework or practice photography. The area is filled with greenery with different type of flowers and gardens. They also provide 2 playgrounds for kids to play. Lovely place.
