Penang Botanic Gardens Reopens

As the country enters the Recovery Movement Control Order period (RMCO) in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Penang Botanic Gardens is reopening its gates to the public with some precautionary measures in place.

The gardens will be open from 7am to 7pm daily but limit to a maximum of 200 visitors only at any given time. Visitors will also need to record their visits and have their temperatures checked prior to entering the gardens.

The Botanic Sunken Garden





Restored earlier this year, the Sunken Garden is located at a lower ground area which is just outside of the Botanic Gardens in Penang. Sunken Garden was originally conceived by the Botanic Gardens’ first Malaysian curator Cheang Kok Choy during his tenure but the garden was later abandoned for some 40 years before its restoration.
