Cycling in the Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam – Botanical Garden

Went to the Botanical Garden again. This the 2nd time in 2 days. The day before, I was there to participate in the Skytrex Adventure where I did climbing and doing lots of flying fox up in the air, high wire crossing, doing tarzan swings; 26 thrilling challenges, all up to 17m above ground.

Today, I was there early to enjoy cycling in the park which cover over 1260 hectares. Even though I was early there, there was a lot of people earlier than me, and waiting for the gates to the park to be open. Reason, so they go in and quickly rent a bicycle to cycle as the shop inside only has a limited of up to 200 bicycles for rental.

It was a nice day to cycle as the night before it rain heavily and in the morning, it was cool and nice.

In the garden, there is also an orchard where you can find all sorts of tropical fruits where they have planted and taken care; rambutans, mangosteen, durians, starfruit, dragon fruit and lots more.

    • Thanks for visiting my blog. The rambutan taste sweet. Actually you will need to break the outer skin and you will find the seed inside with some flesh. The inside will look some sort like a longan where you will only eat the flesh. During the fruiting season… you will see the whole tree red in colour as it will be filled with the rambutans. =)
