However, activities like cycling and having a walk is good since trees are... More

It's a nice place to be if you intend to pull away from the busy city life and getting close to nature. What to expect from this place: 1) It's humongous! (Doubt can finish covering the whole park on food within a day) 2) There's a mini zoo inside the park. The kids would love it. 3) Relatively cheap entrance... More

There are thousands of rare plants throughout the garden and tall huge trees everywhere. The cooling breeze and fresh... More
