We went there as a family to try out celestial watching. The place is quaint and nice but swimming pool is not well maintained though. But we won't dare swim as we all know that the temperature is quite cold. We just passed the time staying in our room 'till evening. The room is quite nice and comfy. When evening came, we went up the observatory deck and the resident astronomer is already there waiting for us. The astronomer calibrated his high powered telescope then they let us peek into it one by one alternatively and we saw the moon like that close. It was fantastic. He has to calibrate it from time to time as the earth is rotating and the moon is revolving. He then set focus on mars, jupiter and saturn. And we have never seen them like that close and clear as we only see them on books. Seeing the planets requires certain luck that the skies are clear enough without clouds. We can never forget that experience and i would highly recommend that you try it also.
