Kuala Lumpur - Taman Tasik Perdana

The concrete jungle, traffic jams and millions of people in Kuala Lumpur can get to you after a while. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. One great and convenient place for a quick escape is the Taman Tasik Perdana (KL Lake Gardens).

The Lake Gardens is the oldest and one of the biggest parks in Kuala Lumpur - with a total area of around 230 acres. It is practically right in the centre of the city, being located around the Old Parliament Complex. It is quite near the KL Sentral Transport Interchange, and if you are staying in the Hilton or Le Meridien it is just a short walk away.

Getting there can be a problem if you don't have your own transport, and getting back can be even worse as this is not an area commonly served by taxis. Your best bet is to take trains or MRT to KL Sentral and walk over to the park.

Lake Gardens is very popular with the locals who use it a a place to relax and exercise. Besides the large lake which is the main attraction here, there is also a Bird Park, Butterfly Park, Deer Park and Orchid Garden.

I like the many old trees in the park which must have been there for more then 100 years.

The next time you feel like getting away from the giddy KL traffic and overcrowded shopping centres, head to the Lake Gardens. You will be pleasantly surprised.
