Taman Tasik Taiping 34000 0
One cannot claim to have visited Taiping without taking some time off to soak in the natural beauty of the Taiping Lake Gardens. Built on top of an abandoned tin mine, the gardens were opened in 1880, earning them a place in the history books as the first public garden in the then Malaya. Huge ancient rain trees line the lake; their branches stretching from one end of the road into the waters across, making the perfect backdrop for couples taking their wedding photos. Spread over 64 hectares, the lake has ten scenic lakes and ponds, charming bridges, tracks for jogging , all surrounded by tropical plants, flowers and trees.
