Worth more than money, relax and restore the soul...

Thank you for liking the actual garden. That is a complimentary- we appreciate! In your review you actually misquoted our price: it is US $15 per person, which is fair. Your admission fee goes towards keeping Flower Forest well-maintained - in the 9 years we...More

Yes! We have an indoor/outdoor cafe and you can relax to the sound of the birds. There is also a nice view off the balcony into the garden.
