Penang Tropical Spice Garden

The Penang Tropical Spice Garden is an eight acre site that is a collection of secondary a jungles. It contains more than 500 species of flora and fauna. This garden is Southeast Asia's only tropical spice garden. This award-winning farm was constructed using mainly natural materials. The furniture and equipment are recycled furniture and equipment from the pre-war shophouses and antique stores around Penang.

There is a conservation complex that features three garden trails - the Spice Trail, Jungle Trail, and Ornamental Trail. The trails will take around 20-45 minutes each and will bring visitors past cascading waterfalls, stream crossings as well as structures made out of recycled organic elements. Each area features unique plant collections such as aquatic plants, spices, and herbs as well as jungle flora. Visitors can opt to explore the park on their own or go for a guided tour.

A recently added attraction is a culinary school where cuisines are prepared using different herbs and spices. The center follows a hands-on approach to cooking where visitors get to prepare meals from scratch by using spices from the garden itself.

Hear From Others

I had last visited the Tropical Spice Gardens 13 years ago and noted even back then how beautiful the landscape was. I was very glad to acknowledge that even this time, the gardens had matured even more and the greenery was more bountiful then ever.

Spices are abundant in Malaysia and nestled along some of the more mountainous terrain in Penang, and only a five-minute drive away from the main road of Batu Feringgi, the Tropical Spice Gardens opened my eyes to a whole new world of spice.

While walk along the path back to the entrance, I looked up to the sky, have a deep breath of the clean air in the garden. It's amazing and bless to see the beauty of nature. The garden need people, need money, need time to take care. The ticket we paid is a just a small part of the contribution in order for this garden to maintain its beauty. If you are nature lover, you will definitely love this place.
