But when we got inside, there was really nothing special about the place. Its just a big garden. Nothing really special. The petting zoo/ aviary zoo... More

If you want a place where you can relax and be with nature, Malagos Garden Resort is a place to be. You can have a tour inside, they have a butterfly and bird sanctuary, a playground, a pool and a feel of nature. They also conduct bird shows. :) But since the place has been a bit old already, it...

They have the organically prepared pure chocolate which earned a name international recognition. It is a must try besides seeing their beautiful gardens and their animals.

What an incredible place- feast your eyes on various Puentespina flowers showcased (including the endemic Waling waling), a profusion of blooms and various flora landscaped magnificently throughout. The air is breezy and paths are wide. There is a pool and play area as well. The place looks deceptively small outside (in fact you could easily miss it from the main... More
