Abstract

This study introduces the concept of Malay garden design in the eyes of tourists, particularly from the inside and outside the country. The objectives are to explain the relationship between cultural tourism and cultural landscape and how to produce the concept of landscape design as a new tourism product to become tourist attractions in Malaysia by using the old Malay manuscripts and an observation to the old houses of the Malay community in Peninsular Malaysia. Finally, researchers are ready to offer ideas to the planning and development of new tourism products based on local culture especially the Malays culture.

Keywords: Malay Gardens; Malay Landscape; Cultural Tourism; Tourism Products.
