Went to Whistling Thorns for a quite afternoon with family. My son and sweet wife enjoyed their swimming to the fullest.
The food was really tasty and like home made...an culinary experience I do remember till now. The entry to the facility is however bit hidden with poor signage to lead you. Especially, once you take the left turn at the main junction off Kiserian main road to the lead road, you will find yourself stopping people by the road to ask about the entrance to the attraction.
Were it not for some people walking near our vehicle, my son while running up and about, was almost mauled by one of the many dogs that loiter within the compound and to date he seems not to like the idea of going back there.
The drive to the venue is also soothing...A true road trip feeling.. I would highly recommend this facility to families, groups of friends or anyone willing to try out something less formal. the waiters are really good and first and the place has a lot of life from interested patrons.
All the same it was time well spent away from the hustles and bustles of the city.
