As an avid gardener and an admirer of tropical plants, this was an especially interesting destination for me: I am certain that most like-minded enthusiasts would relish a visit to Sungai Buloh Green Lane.
Historically, Sungai Buloh was set up as a green haven for people suffering from leprosy. Those people, however, established nurseries, which today continue in operation. An especially good time to pay a visit is just prior to Chinese New Year when the nurseries are replete with plants especially selected for the celebrations.
The nurseries stock all manner of Malaysian native plants, as well as fruit trees, exotic flowers, a stunning array of orchids, pots and gardening products.
The nurseries are about 25 minutes by car from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur.
