To make sure that everything goes smoothly during your trip, we’ve created a complete guide that will make you want to get whisked into this ecological farm. From where to stay, eat and what to do, here’s everything you need to know:

Best Time to Go

The best time to visit HL Dragon Fruit Eco Farm is during the harvesting season, which luckily is all year round! 

There are some seasons, however, that are considered “peak” compared to other months, which is why they encourage you to schedule a visit through their website. This way, visitors can know when the best harvest dates are.

As far as the weather is concerned, it would be wise to book your visit during the dry season, which runs from June to August. However, keep in mind that there are still chances of rainfall throughout these months.

Meanwhile, the shoulder season (January, February, September and October) sees moderate rain while providing pleasant weather.

Taxi/Grab: You can also take a taxi if you’re looking for a more convenient and comfortable trip. There are taxis everywhere in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor but if you’re having trouble hailing one, you can book a ride through Grab instead.

From there, you can follow the signs heading to Sepang International Airport where you’ll find the route going to Jalan Banting-Port Dickson. Continue along this road until you reach the farm!

As much as possible, we recommend visiting this restaurant on weekdays, as it’s super famous with locals and tourists alike. If you do get a chance to get a table, you’d want to order their oh chien (fried oyster omelette), as it’s super flavourful and great for sharing!

Restoran Sepang is a great spot to visit if you’re looking to treat yourself to some cheap but high-quality grub. This humble eatery serves famous delicacies like tom yum soup, clay pot braised pork, and fresh seafood like crab and squid—all of which are worth trying.

If you want our advice, we recommend going for the roasted duck, especially if you’re coming with friends or family since it has a large serving size.

You can also end your meal on a sweet note by ordering their soft and fluffy pandan cake—yum!

What to Do in HL Dragon Fruit Eco Farm

Take memorable photos

Something that this farm has over other ones in the area is its collection of beautiful sceneries and other photo-worthy attractions. For instance, it features your typical farm scenery, which consists of the different dragon fruit trees. 

Meanwhile, there’s also a gigantic dragon fruit sculpture that you can’t miss in the middle of the farm, which by the way, holds the world record for being the largest statue of this fruit. A trip to this farm without a photo by this massive statue isn’t complete so be sure to strike a pose!

Pluck some dragon fruits

It wouldn’t be a complete experience on the farm without plucking some freshly ripe dragon fruits! This is why we recommend researching the best harvest season of the year beforehand so that you can pick the plumpest and juiciest dragon fruits in the field.

This activity is relatively easy enough, as you’ll be guided by the farmers on the field and you’ll be given the right tools. The only thing you need here is a pair of pruning shears and you’re golden—just be sure to catch the fruit so it doesn’t hit the ground.

Experience planting

Since you’re going to pluck some dragon fruits while you’re here, it’s only right to replace them with newly planted ones! Here, you’re going to get some dirt on your hands and see what it’s like to plant these seeds before they blossom into the beautiful fruits you know and love.

It beats any other kind of souvenir out there, as it will give you some learnings that you’ll get to bring with you forever—pretty neat, right?

Take a guided tour

To make sure that you explore every nook and cranny of this farm, we recommend taking a guided tour. If you’re unaware of where to go, the farm may look like a vibrant maze of dragon fruit plants, but with a guide, you can enjoy an experience for the senses!

You can visit the different-coloured dragon fruit plants and be fascinated with their exotic looks or experience the pollination of the flowers first-hand. Regardless of where your tour takes you, however, we have a feeling that you’ll have a fun and memorable time!

Try tasty dragon fruit-based dishes at HL Restaurant & Cafe

Address: Lot 7608, Sepang, Malaysia

Phone: +60 11-5357 7687


You can’t leave the farm without stopping by restaurant and cafe and sampling its delicious dragon fruit-based dishes! The selection of dishes on their menu will seem weird at first, as you wouldn’t think that the fruit would fit in with the other ingredients, but you’ll be surprised!

One of the perfect examples of this is the dragon fruit nasi lemak where the fruit is incorporated into the fragrant rice, giving it a bright pink colour. The biggest highlight from their menu, however, is the dragon fruit bun, which is this gigantic pink bread that pairs perfectly with curry chicken! 

If you want to cool off, you can also check out their dragon breath smoothie, where you’ll uncontrollably spew smoke out of your nose after consumption.
