In that kind of place if you don’t make your choice before going your visit may end up in complete chaos. If you go with friends or family, especially with young children, everyone will have a go in choosing an attraction to see, and no one will be happy with the option taken in the end.

Not too bad for a beginning. The place is lovely; you’ll be able to walk up and down stairs, admiring tropical plants of all sizes. You can also have a free manicure with the Garra Rufa fishes if you wish. My children did enjoy this one.

When you look carefully at them, they are most beautiful.
