What a beautiful place to visit! Wonderful alone or with company! There's a glass elephant which is about 5 floors up in a lift its excellent! !! There's a water park inside the main park for children to have fun in. Well worth it!

We had an enjoyable bike ride with friends and there were also markets on when we visited. The elephant is also worth a visit

The grounds are beautiful (with so many plants, flowers, trees, etc.) and there's lots to see. The herb garden near the restaurant was great. The place is perfect for families - there's really awesome playgrounds everywhere and my partner's godson had a blast. The exhibition...More
