For those of you who enjoy the beauty of nature, the Perdana Botanical Gardens should be on the top of your list when visiting KL. Sprawling across 91.5 hectares of lush greenery, the Perdana Botanical Gardens is home to thousands of species of plants, serving as one of the biggest green lungs of KL.
A popular spot for families especially on the weekends, kids can enjoy a large outdoor playground with playhouses that are interconnected, combining multiple playhouses for the ultimate playground experience.
It’s also a popular spot for an afternoon/evening picnic, with plenty of shady trees and well maintained grass. Just bring along a picnic mat and you’re all set!
You might also want to check out the orchid and hibiscus gardens where thousands of orchids and hibiscus varieties are on display. The two gardens are located right next to each other, despite the directions of the park map that doesn’t highlight the walkway between the gardens.
Over at laman perdana, where the three main roads from the three entrances meet, comes a square, where events and activities are often carried out. It’s also a popular spot for people to rollerblade, cycle, or even skateboard.
Head here to find the lake, located right next to Laman Perdana.
There’s also the bamboo playhouse, where guests can climb into the bamboo “houses” and explore the higher decks, relaxing with the breeze. Located on what is known as Cycad island, head here to check out the various cycads and succulents being cultivated.
The park is definitely one of KL’s most beautiful places to visit, offering a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of KL. It also features jogging tracks, exercise stations, row boats, outdoor sculptures, and much more.
