Enjoyed a three night stay not far from historical park. Enterance to park cheap, so we had a ride around there each day and also down the local country lanes. All very enjoyable and family/couples friendly. Lots of photo opportunities.

Peaceful place and beautiful landscape especially in early morning and during sunset even there are ruins. Quite hot in a day time.

Great historical park. Hire a bicycle and don't rush it. Try to feel the magic of the place.I don't normally do sightseeing, but this really deserve it!

Very peaceful and great photo opportunities. Vast area and few tourists made us feel like we had the place to ourselves at times.

I did not see any electric buggy, and I did not even hear about it. Just bicycles. From the gate you can find tuk-tuk, or there is a regular bus ride to the city center
