Been there with my 3 kids, lots of people told us that there isn't much to see, but surprisingly we were amazed by the amount of the butterflies both standing in nature as well as flying all over! we had tons of fun!

We were pleasantly surprised to walk along the peaceful valley and enjoy the environment... There were still a few butterflies about to keep the eagle-eyed entertained and we were pleasantly surprised to spot crabs in the rivers in-between... The first section was quite easy with...More
