KL, Malaysia – One Utama Secret Garden

We’ve heard so much about the One Utama Secret Garden that we had to include it in our itinerary.

One Utama is possibly the largest mall in KL. We recommend alighting at the new wing and visiting the rooftop Secret Garden which is open to the public on weekends and public holidays. They’ve successfully grown the Amazon lilies in the small pond. Sometime in the past, they’ve planted apple trees, but we didn’t see any. The place is heavily misted. Garden is not as well kept as what we see in other photos. But certainly luscious and well watered by someone who knows gardening.

Entrance is free. Unless you’re shopping at One Utama or really like gardens, there’s no reason to make a special trip here just to see the gardens if you’re from Singapore. Transportation is not convenient.

Personally, I’m glad I came, because I’ve heard so much about it.  If I were to visit KL again, perhaps I’d cut out Pavilion from my itinerary and shop at One Utama instead. [Probably because Pavilion is more high-end shopping which I can get in Singapore anyway.]
