Kuala Lumpur Orchid Garden
The Orchid Garden houses about 3,000 orchid species from around the world, with 800 species from Malaysia alone."
Situated beside the Butterfly Park, within the Lake Garden vicinity, the Orchid Garden houses about 3,000 orchid species from around the world, with 800 species from Malaysia alone.
An adjoining section is devoted to the hibiscus, Malaysia's national flower. This section showcases more than 2,000 varieties of hibiscuses. It is common for the occupants of the nearby Butterfly Park to visit these gardens, creating a more lively atmosphere. The Garden is transformed into a bazaar during weekends where both the orchid and the hibiscus are on sale.
"Just planning to come back to KKL in May 2006 to buy orchids, could you tell me if the Orchids Garden will be open on saturday May 20th ? or it will be still closed as I saw it's currently closed until late May ? Please let me know. Thank you very much for your reply.
