Taiping is also famous for its Lake Gardens. The park sprawls over 62 hectares of land and is one of the largest and oldest parks in Malaysia. We were simply exhausted while walking around the gardens, and we didn’t even manage to see all of them.

There are big water lily lakes in Taiping Lake Gardens. Frankly speaking, I feel that the water lily lakes are not being taken care of. The lily plants look rather dull and not many blooming lilies around.
Worse still, we saw a man using a long rod to pick fresh lily buds from the lakes! This man only picked lily buds that were not opened yet. No wonder we didn’t see many blooming water lilies around!
The man went to the other lake to “fish” for lily buds again. Poor baby lilies!
There are many big old trees along the roadside in Taiping Lake Gardens.
The big trees branch out over the roadway, artistically…
and the branches of some trees have even grown over to the opposite side of the road. Er… any height limit set for vehicles? (Click to enlarge image without the ugly red arrow.)
Great pose, Bala! ^_^
Lot of Bamboo trees for the pandas.
