  • This is a MUST VISIT for nature and landscape lovers! If you love places like this you will be able to spend a minimum of 3 hours here. There are so many hidden spots and sights! It is beautiful and so good for the soul. There is also a restaurant and a cafe - I didn't try anything there but the coffee at the cafe smelled amazing. Regarding restrooms - they are located all over the gardens so no need to worry about that.
  • Beautifully laid out gardens with an abundance of plants, explanations, outlook platforms and interactive experiences to immerse yourself. It won many awards and you can see why.
