Expansive grounds that house vast number of exotic animals
, towering trees and blooming flowers not only appeal to people of all ages but somehow sightseeing at such a place never saps you of all your energy.

Located on the fringes of the bustling city, itís nowhere near the trendy urban spots.

filled with great towering trees, colorful flowers as well as the occasional artistic monument

(under the supervision of adults) for patrons.
Cheerful colors, fun cooking lessons for the kids
