Welcome to Tropical Spice Garden, a treasure cove where nature and culture meet in Penang, Malaysia. Tropical Spice Garden is a bio-diverse living museum of the spices and other tropical floras that have moulded our world history.The six landscaped acres of the garden is a treasure pot of more than 500 living specimens of green and exotic plants from around the world. Spread over 8 acres of secondary jungle, it is situated on what was once an abandoned rubber plantation along Penang’s north-western shores. The Garden opened to the public in November 2003.
Here’s what you can do at the Garden:
Stroll though the Garden at your leisure as the stories of the spices and plants are brought to life. We encourage guests to meander through the intertwining trails and get up close and bask in the rainforest experience.
The audio guides are available in English, Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin, Arabic, Japanese, German and French. There are 69 numbered exhibits and are not placed sequentially.
Our experienced nature guides are always on hand to show visitors around the Garden. Our tours will bring the medicinal benefits, folklore and the historical spice trade of these magical plants alive. Guided tours are available daily. Tours are between 1.15 – 1.30 hours each.
This special guided tour happens after sundown as dusk turns to dark. Our specially trained guides will lead guests through our rainforest garden revealing the secrets of the nocturnal animals and plants in their natural, undisturbed state. It is a full sensory experience of the ‘jungle by night’ where one’s sense of sound and sight comes alive.
