KL Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Perdana)
Largest and most pleasant of KL's gardens
What we say:
The largest and most pleasant of the city's public open spaces is KL Lake Gardens.
The 92-hectare area includes a deer park, a butterfly park and an orchid garden, as well as the attractive lake itself. Although it can get mobbed at weekends, during the week it is a very peaceful spot and one of the few places in KL where you can escape the noise of traffic.
Unfortunately, the gardens are difficult to get to by public transport, with the nearest LRT stations (Pasar Seni to the east, and KL Sentral to the south) long, unpleasant walks away. Getting a taxi is probably the best option.
The gardens are best combined with a visit to the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia and/or the National Mosque.
