Penang Tropical Spice Garden describes itself as Asia's Hidden Eden and their lush fragrant gardens are a great place to see a vast array of spices and other exotic plants, totalling over 500 species.

Over 2km of pathway meander through six acres of spice gardens located on the northern shore of Penang island.

Visitors can tour the garden in one of two ways:

  • either self-guided with an easy-to-use audio device giving information on the various plants in one of six languages or,
  • fully guided tours in English, Arabic, Malay or Mandarin with experienced nature guides to tell you the folklore associated with the various plants as well as explain their medicinal benefits.
