吉隆坡的胡姬花园是湖滨公园的一部分。湖滨公园虽建立于1885年,但这胡姬花园却在1986年才成立。根据官方网站,胡姬花园号称拥有大约800种胡姬花。

Orchid Garden is part of the Perdana Botanical Garden (formerly known as Lake Garden) in Kuala Lumpur. Though the botanical gardens were built in year 1885, the Orchid Garden was only built in 1986. According to its official website, it claimed that the garden houses up to 800 species of orchids.

在我小时候的胡姬花园到处都充满亮丽的胡姬花,还有一处售卖胡姬花盆栽的地方。现在,这售卖处已没有了,已没有人卖胡姬花盆栽,游客也不一定能在园内的每一个角落看到盛开的胡姬花。毕竟,胡姬花不是每天都盛开,它总会凋谢的。花园管理也只是负责种花浇水,不会把已凋谢的或没开花的替换成正盛开的胡姬花。

When I was a kid, the garden was full of colourful blooming orchids and there’s a dedicated place to sell orchid plants too. Nowadays, the garden is no longer selling any orchid plants and visitors may not able to see blooming orchids in every corner of the garden. Orchid plants are not in blossom all the time; the garden management is only planting and watering the orchids; no one will replace the orchid plants that are not in blossom with those in blossom.

胡姬花园旁就是种着马来西亚国花的大红花花园。当然,要看盛开着的各种大红花还是要看运气的。附近就是快要搬迁的小鹿公园,胡姬花园的对面则是飞禽公园。

Next to the Orchid Garden is Hibiscus Park, a park that showcases Malaysia’s national flower. Of course, luck has to be there to see the variety species of blooming hibiscus too. Nearby is the soon to move Deer Park. Opposite the Orchid Garden is Bird Park.

大红花花园有一英殖民时期风格的建筑,旁边是展览室,但却时常关闭。

如果想游玩整个湖滨公园,建议利用园区的电瓶车,大人 MYR2 ,小孩 MYR1 。车票一天之内都有效,可以任意搭乘不需再买票。因为缺乏宣传,本地人和游客大多都不知道这电瓶车服务。其实,这电瓶车服务已在2011年开始运作,后来吉隆坡市政府厅在2014年交给 KL Hop-On Hop-Off 的操作公司来运作此服务。

If you would like to walk around the Perdana Botanical Garden, I would suggest to make use the electric-powered tram service that runs in the garden area. The tram ticket is MYR2 for adult and MYR1 for children. The ticket is valid for a day and the ticket holder is allowed to hop-on and hop-off as many times he/she wants. However, the service is little known to both tourists and locals alike. Actually, this tram service has already started since year 2011, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) was then handed over the tram service to the operators of KL Hop-On Hop-Off bus service.

  5. 最近的轻快铁车站是中央市场站 (Pasar Seni Station),徒步过去要超过半个小时,所以还是走到国家回教堂转搭电瓶车到胡姬花园吧。
