We were not sure what the show would be and were most pleasantly surprised. The outdoor theatre which uses the natural elements for the stage and the backdrop were amazing. Bring bug spray and dress comfortably in the summer heat. The show was slow at times, but the choreography and amount of moving parts along with the grand scale was... More

The garden is okay however the view of the elephant is amazing. Go there only for the view. It's part of the same enclosure and u can do the hill.first and then take pictures.

Can't believe they block the view of this from the road so you have to pay to go and see it, if you just want to take photos go up to the bar on the 6th floor of the Golden Oriele and get it for free.

Well done! I was very lucky to watch the show. The performance on the water, around the mountain, with 600 performers, it was just AMAZING! I was very impressed!!! Highly recommended, but the price is high

Seldom I would like to give poor review. We were directed to an open area and seated. Suppose to be a presentation by some minority people. Three ladies came out and did their hair do. That's it. Showtime over. The stage show was nothing to shout about. After the stage show we walked to see a live cockfight with bets... More
