This is why one of the key feature of the park is the whitewash edifice where all the flags of the countries present during the meeting are placed.

Despite the tropical temperature in Langkawi, a visit to the park will be a breeze, since it is surrounded by bullet wood trees that are known to have been planted by the country delegations themselves during the historical meeting. Up to this day, these trees prove to be a refreshing sight in a rather manmade park.
