Timeless and enchanting, TROPICAL SPICE GARDEN is an eco-sanctuary tucked within a natural valley fronting the much chronicled Strait of Malacca. The garden is a privately funded agro-tourism project endorsed by the Penang State Government.
Celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, TROPICAL SPICE GARDEN continues to flourish and grow to become a key attraction and leading botanic institution in the region. It aims to foster understanding and appreciation of tropical plants and the diversity of spices through informative guided tours, hands-on cooking classes and nature educational programs.
TROPICAL SPICE GARDEN is a garden of discovery for those who miss out on simple pleasures like walking barefoot on dewy grass, catching sight of frolicking monkeys or stopping to smell the flowers.
Spread across 8 acres of secondary jungle, the landscaped area of 6 acres is a treasure trove of more than 500 living specimens of lush and exotic flora from around the world including the faintly aromatic torch ginger from Indonesia, indigenous spices from Malaysia, colourful Amazonian bromeliads, strange palms from Seychelles, Heliconias from Ecuador and exotic ferns from Tropical America.
The showcase garden is also a playground for an assortment of birds, insects, mammals and reptiles, offering amazing opportunities for photography and filming.
Our Vision – “To be an internationally recognized spice garden that brings a peoples history, culture and living environment together as an eco-tourism destination”
Our Mission – “To be a sustainable community project that preserves and instills appreciation for our natural heritage and peoples history through ethical means, whilst continuing to re-invent the past for future generations”
