Huge, beautiful garden with so much to see Jan 19, 2016
First, the gardens are huge. Second, it's hot. Really hot. And if it's not hot then it's really rainy. So dress accordingly, bring water and an umbrella, and try not to complain when you're surrounded by so much cool stuff.

That being said, there really is so much to see and do in the garden. You could just show up and allow yourself to get distracted by this and that, but it might be worthwhile to go with a plan. I spent about two hours there and didn't see half of it. It got too hot and I ran out of water.

I'll attempt to give you a rundown of everything inside the garden with its own individual rating:

Orchid garden- five stars

Hibiscus garden- four stars

Deer park- did not visit

Planetarium- closed at the time of writing

Planetarium outdoor gallery- four stars, lots of cool sculptures and astronomy information

Lake- 4 stars, beautiful and well-kept

Bamboo tree houses- 4 stars, great refuge for when it starts to rain

Herbal medicine garden- did not visit

Bird Park- did not visit, though I've heard mixed reviews, costs 50 RM

Butterfly Park- did not visit, comes highly recommended

It's very likely that you'll see monkeys and monitor lizards and you'll be swarmed by mosquitoes and colorful butterflies in equal measure. Don't feed the monkeys, it makes them view humans as food dispensers and can make them aggressive.

From the National Museum, you can get to the park via underground tunnel, or you can get to the Planetarium via an overpass. Most things in the park are free, and it's open 24 hours. There are also plenty of toilets, but no toilet paper, soap, or doors. That's right, no doors on the stalls. If you need to squat, it's best to have a buddy. Happy trails!
