If you are visiting the National Monument (Tugu Negara), you should not miss the ASEAN Sculpture Garden. It is a beautiful garden along Parlimen Road, about 100 meters from the National Monument and very close to Lake Gardens, and a 15-minute walk from the LRT station in Masjid Jamek.
The experience is more elevated if you know more about the meaning behind every sculpture, as the information on site is quite scarce. The garden was officially opened to commemorate the 20th anniversary of ASEAN in 1987.

Bukit Kiara Park is surrounded by nature, which is enjoyed by people of all walks of life and is home to many wild plants, birds, monkeys and other animals. The 5 km jogging trail is pretty challenging. The hill path requires some effort and determination to reach the top that is approximately 250 m above sea level. It's tiring, but the top view is worth the hike! Who would have thought a residential area as dense as Taman Tun Dr Ismail could be home to such a beautiful park?
