I spotted a garden from the balcony of my hotel, The Tower Regency Hotel. It is located next to The Syuen Hotel and opposite Ipoh Parade. The garden is called Bougainvillea Park and its name sparked my curiosity.
It's not a big park but it sure function as one of the green lungs for Ipoh City. A perfect place for an evening stroll.
It is quite obvious why the park was named in such way as there are a lot of Bougainvillea flowers (the locals called in Bunga Kertas if not mistaken) here. It's a shame it was not in full bloom during my last visit or otherwise it would be a magnificent sight.
The rock garden at the edge of Bougainvillea Park. This is probably the most beautiful (and the coolest on a hot afternoon) section of the garden as I can see a few couples taking their photos here.
