A rain forest in the middle of the desert. How awesome is that? On Shabat we walked there from the Hilton (4 kilometers) and back, AND IT WAS WORTH EVERY STEP!

It is a garden store that developed beautiful gardens. It is near BIG shopping mall. If you don't have a car it is hard to get there. The waterfall was beautifully developed.

This is small and nice botanic garden built and maintained by enthusiasts. It's about 1-2 hours to spend there.

A beautiful garden to relax with a nice variety of interesting plants. I only wish that there were more name tags for the plants and more information about the local ecosystmem. All in all, a place well worth visiting.
