Be a tourist at your own place.
As a semi-tour-guide, there are still lots of places I haven't explore, especially those "very" tourist spot. One of them is the Spice Garden.
Very lucky to have spotted the discount coupon offer in Everyday.com, bought the ticket at RM5 per pax (original price RM14), so happy larr... Big saving! Thanks Everyday!

We were there on a Saturday noon. Not crowded, not a worry at all. However, there will be a lot of mosquito that welcome you, prepare yourself with mosquito repellent. Spice Garden staff might offer you at the entrance counter for FREE or ask for one.
The place is full of greenery, full of spices which less than 10 that I could recognized. Very nice walk and you will be breathing in different smells along your walk. There are sign and description in English and Malay beside the plant for you to get to know them.
The route around the garden is pretty confusing, up and down, to and fro, no brochure with map provided at the entrance, but seems like they had it for sale. You are on your own to walk around the garden, they do not provide tour guide, not big enough to get lost, but it takes about 2-3 hours to complete also.
Some nice spots to shoot~
There is a souvenir shop and a cafe named Tree Monkey Restaurant in the garden as well. But you know, pricey as usual~
Ask me worth for a visit? As a Malaysian, with RM5 for the ticket, it definately worth every penny!
But RM14? I will hesitate. LOL... If ask me to rate how much the ticket should worth, I will say RM7 or RM8 will be the maximum charge.
If you able to get a discounted rate, you should try check it out~
