Beautiful Botanical gardens, you will see lot of flowers, trees, birds, monkeys, open spaces for kids to play, you will walk along the river, do check out the suspension bridge.
Lots of different flowers and trees, nice view of the surrounding mountains. Spacious setup, so very relaxing. Only a bit on the expensive side, 1500 roepie ($10) per person, where the locals get in for 60 roepie ($0,40)
