  • We did not take the park ride, we walked round for 3hours or so. Very nice park with flowers in bloom in April. Particularly like the flowering rhododendrons. Food is extremely expensive.

  • Amazing place.. have supporting them for few years and will continue to do so.. love it.. 🥰🥰 Since everyone is rating the place, I would like to rate my experience there yesterday.. My cinema experience.. 😍😍 They have launched an open air cinema.. I would love to say I admire the high standard delivered.. Superb.. Everything was perfect.. I have had several experiences with open air cinema, and I can confirm this was the best.. Thank you very much for making us enjoy our evening.. Thanks for all your effort (love the fact you provided umbrellas).. 💛💛💛
  • Absolutely beautiful place, with a wide range of exotic native and foreign plants and flowers. Keep an eye out for a beautiful peacock who sometimes can be spotted near the pagoda tower. They also have a nice lake, woodland walk, and they have beautiful gardens as well. They have great trees such as the Monkey puzzle tree. And they have great art exhibitions. There is truly something for everybody there. So I would recommend going along, and if you want to visit regularly you should get membership, as Its cheap ✌️👍👍✌️
