Scenery and General Description
This is one of my favourite spot for fastfood and for my children too. This Macdonald restaurant is set in a garden environment. The building is mostly open-air with the main ordering counter in an air-conditioned enclosure.
Trees are abundance with beautiful bamboo trees dominating the surroundings of the restaurant. They help to create a tropical relax atmosphere for the restaurant. It is very relaxing to sit in the open-air area listening to the occasional chirping of birds, fluttering of the butterflies and also the splashing of water when the terrapins jumped into the water.
In front of the Macdonald, is a small pond with many terrapins and small koi fish. A zigzag bridge allows you to scroll across the pond and watch the fish and the terrapins. However, no feedings is allowed. My kids love to come here mainly because of this pond with the terrapins.
Things to Do
You can choose to sip your cup of coffee while watching the serenity of the surrounding and the pond. While your child could walk along the bridge. For the younger children, they will love to play in the playground. There is also a “atap house”, a small hut for resting and enjoying the fresh air.
