The Lake Gardens, formerly known as Taman Tasik Perdana, is one of Malaysia’s most beautiful, most popular gardens. Also known as the oldest of its kind this lush landscaped retreat is situated at the edge of the town and is well removed from the hustle and bustle of the town close by.
The area in which the Gardens lie, was where the colonial rulers of times past, made their residences so as to escape the congestion of the town. In fact the British High Commissioner and British Governor’s residencies which overlook the garden have now been converted to one of Malaysia’s most exclusive hotels.
The garden is located around an artificial lake and spreads over close to 227 acres of land. The entire landscape is filled with lush foliage and fauna and creates a comfortable and beautiful ambiance.
There are many attractions in and around the gardens. One such attraction is the Orchid Garden featuring over 800 varieties of the beautiful flower from Malaysia alone. These can be bought during the weekends.
The Hibiscus Gardens showcase a stunning array of colour and are exceedingly breathtaking. The Butterfly Park with over 6000 butterflies and the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, the largest in South East Asia, are also in close proximity to the Lake Gardens and offer visitors a wonderful chance to be attuned to nature.
At the centre of the gardens lies an adventure park for children. All in all the Lake Gardens provide an idyllic retreat for the whole family. Boats can also be rented for use on the lake, and there are jogging tracks and exercise stations readily available for the health conscious traveller.
The traveller seeking for accommodation at a Kuala Lumpur hotel may enjoy a stay at a Kuala Lumpur luxury hotel such as the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur with its luxury amenities. The hotel’s central location will help the traveller to visit Kuala Lumpur’s many attractions with ease.
