Although I have been to Taiping Lake Gardens numerous times, I have not actually taken a series of photographs of it until recently. I even had my friend, Wan, as my model. Haha!

Taiping Lake Gardens is the first public garden established in 1880. Originally a mining ground, this 160-acre site was donated by Chung Thye Phin, a wealthy tin miner, as a recreation park.

  2. Hi Emily,
    No worry if you missed the chance on your last trip to Taiping. Not very special, but worth a trip if you are in Taiping:)

  3. Yes, one of my fav destination when I go home for a visit. I do recall being swamped by mosquitoes though but it could be due to the recent rain prior to my last visit. Beautiful and very peaceful. Great to enjoy the stillness of life. SF has its Golden Gate Park, NY has its Central Park and we have our own Taiping Lake Gardens.
