Penang Botanical Gardens Photos

Our Penang Botanical Gardens photos page will hopefully give you more of an idea of what it is like in the Penang Botanic Gardens.

Located a few km outside of Georgetown on the site of an old quarry, the gardens are a great place to visit to escape the busy city streets, enjoy slightly cooler temperatures and take in some of the nature of Penang.
