The ‘International Garden’ of Bukit Jalil Park.

It’s a national holiday today (I hope all of you celebrating had a lovely day!)
which meant a day off school. My daughter was quite keen to know if we were actually going away on vacation but unfortunately, not really feasible for a day!But little did I know that we could take our children on a trip around the world without even leaving Kuala Lumpur!

Bukit Jalil Park (Taman Rekreasi Bukit Jalil) is in itself a lovely park with ample space, lakes, jogging paths, picnic spots and a children’s playground but, unbeknown to some, it is also home to the ‘International Garden’.

 

A beautiful park to wander around or to take the kids with their bikes and scooters.

 

This is a separate section of the park which has been divided into different gardens representing different countries. Today alone we have walked through an English garden, admired a Dutch windmill, crossed the bridge between Japan and China, and explored the depths of Peru and Thailand!

Add to this the colours of Iran, Canada, Indonesia and, the host country of Malaysia, and I feel like we have had a getaway without needing to fly anywhere!

Both children adored this place; they took their scooters (bikes are also allowed!) and have loved going through the maze-like paths to discover country after country after country….

 

Following the winding paths to Thailand

 

There’s a few areas that could do with a little bit of tender loving care but we all loved the place. Take drinks/snacks with you as there wasn’t a shop or food vendor in sight, yet ample of benches to make use of when you need a break.

At approximately 20 minutes south of KL I really think this is worth the short trip outside the city, we’ll be going back for sure! S x
