Penang Botanic Garden formerly known as Waterfall garden. This place is just amazing. Literally a garden in the forest, it is considered unique around the world . The garden is divided by streams of water wherein the head of it is a grand waterfalls. Unfortunately this waterfall is not open for public due to safety reasons. nevertheless this place is still a gem with the abundance of flora and fauna, easy and difficult hiking trails, nature lovers will find this place a paradise. a must see when in Penang.

I’ve been to Botanic gardens for many times but my know-it-all mindset stops me from exploring its beautiful surroundings vertically. We travel, we visit a place without immersing ourselves to its full potential. We come and go, take nice selfie and we thought weve been there and thats it. We know the surface, the general facts but we didn’t exprience it fully. The fast phase living also affects our way of travelling and appreciating. So here I am trying…The curtis trail is an easy trek for family. Grateful to have a chance to live here in Penang.

We are fortunate enough to see a family of dust leaf monkeys in one of the trees. These type of monkeys are not aggressive and they just forage in canopies.

Long Tail Macaques Friends helping each other to remove pests in each others head. Unlike the dusky leaf monkeys, these monkeys are more aggressive to find food in the ground and even some tried to attacked us as my daughter holding a plastic bag.
