Impressions of flower market @ Sungai Buloh

The best place to admire floras in Malaysia is not the Botanica Garden in Putrajaya. It has to be the flower market at Sungai Buloh, outskirt of Kuala Lumpur (it is very easy to access via a new highway through the Sg Buloh hospital). The second good choice will be the Orchid Garden inside Perdana Lake Garden (used to charge RM1 per entry).

I was lucky because today’s weather forecast was raining and thunderstorm. The sky was giving all visitors a good break with an hour of blue sky, then turn back to overcast and started to rain. If you like to visit the same event, please come early. By 8:30am, most balloons already floated far far away …
