Taman Pertanian Shah Alam

It has many different names - call it Taman Bukit Cahaya, Taman Pertanian Shah Alam or Taman Pertanian Seri Alam. A colleague told us about this place, which is a nice and big place to enjoy the nature and cycling, so we decided we go there for a day trip. The entrance fee is RM3 per adult and RM1 per kid under 12 year-old.

As we entered the park, we had choices of method to explore the park: walking, tour bus, or cycling. We picked cycling as this was 1 of the main reasons we came - to enjoy the nature and wind, but later on we regretted because the place is hilly and cycling was tiring.

Big tour bus that goes around the park.

Rented the bicycle at RM3 for 1st hour and RM1 for subsequent hours. New bicycles - RM5 1st hour and RM1 for subsequent hours.

Our first stop was the paddy field and Cocoa field, but I didn't see any Cocoa (or maybe I don't recognize it).

Besides greens, there are many animals kept in the park, and it didn't smell too bad like the zoo.

Lonely pony inside the compound standing near the gate, I think he wished to come out.



One of the attractions of this park is the Four Seasons temperature garden. It was 'winter' from Dec till March, and on the door there was a notice saying that 'Temperature: -2 to -7 Celsius. No jackets provided.' :| But since we were there, we decided to give it a try, with our t-shirt and shorts. Not as 'scary' as we thought.

Fee per entry for the temperature garden is RM3, I think it's over-charged because it's just a small house with both side of the area decorated with some 'snow' and dolls, couldn't even walk on the 'snow' and pose beside the dolls. Snow house @ Genting and Ice World in The Mines Wonderland are much better. Maybe Spring or Autumn will be nice.

Anyway, the park is soooooo big that we couldn't finish in one day (we only covered maybe 20% of it), the sun getting warmer in the afternoon so we went home around 12PM, would like to visit it again, wish to visit the fruits farm and fish farm next time.
