See the ancient dragon blood trees at Diksam. Walk among the huge trees, dating back thousands of years, and learn about this species of plant, which starts as a little shrub and grows for centuries. It gets its name after the sap that resembles blood, and makes a favorite for bonsais. Consider bringing a picnic to enjoy underneath the broad canopy.
