Botanical Gardens

Botanical Gardens in Penang would certainly appeal to nature lovers, botanists, horticulturists and jungle trekkers. Surrounded by beautiful tropical forests, this place has unique flora and fauna such as the Cannon Ball Tree and Pinang Palm from which the city derives its name. For a chance to commune with nature, visit the Formal Garden, which is in typical British style. First set up in 1884, Botanical Gardens also offers a Lily Pond for those who enjoy walking, cascading waterfalls and an Orchidarium, which is an amazing place for lovers of exotic orchids.

  • Enjoy the antics of long tailed macaques, monkeys and black squirrels while taking a leisurely walk in the Formal Garden; admire the amazing beauty of the Black Lily while relaxing at the Lily Pond in Botanical Gardens.
  • Shop for some souvenirs, botanical books or other books about Penang at the Botanika Shop, located right at the entrance of the Formal Garden.
  • Research facts about botany, horticulture and landscape plants at the Horticulture Centre in Penang - you can even buy some young botanical plants or other items to take back home with you.

To go to Botanical Gardens from Bayan Lepas International Airport without any hassle, consider taking a taxi. The journey normally lasts 45 minutes. If you happen to be at the Weld Quay Bus or Ferry Terminal, take Rapid Penang Bus Number 10, which heads to Botanical Gardens. Then, get off from the bus at its final stop. The bus usually passes through Komtar. Therefore, if you happen to be in Komtar, you can take this bus. The bus fare is RM2 or less than US$1. Prior to boarding the bus, make sure that you have the exact fare.
