Just gorgeous! Really loved the Chinese and Japanese Gardens! Food is expensive though and the entrance fee is a little pricey but then again, they need to employ tons of gardeners. Will go back!

Broken down into continent-type gardens this place occupy a full day of wandering amongst the massive collection of roses, bonsai trees, desert cactus in bloom or koi fish. A marvelous collection of natural beauty and a gentle walk among a variety of found and flora!
