WOW!!! Heard it was great...was not a lie. Lovely evening walk. A lot of various lit up characters and animals, birds. The ones on the water were the best as they reflected onto the water. Very unique and well done! So glad we went!

These gardens are very large and worth a few hours to visit. We only had a short time as flying out that day, but it was well worth it. These are numerous glass houses, and formal laid gardens. Don’t miss the Chinese Garden

Nice to get out of the city into the quiet. The Chinese light show was on while we were there, which is excellent. The pathways are irregular and it's very dark, so leave the stilettos at the hotel. The Japanese garden is quite nice and...More
