Definitely worth visiting if you find yourself in Batu Ferringhi. You can easily spend a couple of hours here taking in really nice surroundings. My main advice would be to pack mosquito repellent as we got bitten from head to toes!

Spent about an hour in this garden under rainy condition- it was a bit like walking in a rainforest. The difference was the fragrance of different kind of spicy plantation. I also loved the pond and waterfalls in the garden.

Thank you NikhilNahar, glad that you made it to the garden. Yes we sometimes call it a mini rainforest experience as well because it is really more than just herbs and spices! Hope to see you again next time! :)
