  • The gardens are beautiful and very large. The butterfly sanctuary is perhaps the most spectacular part of it. Leave aside about 2 hours at least for a visit. The cafe in the garden is open until after closing time and you can enjoy a drink at the gardens once they close.
  • Great place for a wander. Nicely done different areas including tropical green houses and several places to spot interesting animals. They have poisonous frogs on display, as well as and a bee colony and a so called insect hotel for solitary bees and bugs. Plenty of nice places to have a sit and let your thoughts go for a bit.
