  • Festival of Lights is magical
  • A 55-acre eco-cocoon of 255,000 individual plants from around the world. Dont miss the hedge maze. See if you can get to the monkey puzzle tree in the middle.
  • Terrible signage & map. Cart tours for handicapped only at 1, 2 & 3pm. No mention on website. Apathetic staff at Admissions counter. There was auto show, had to move off path for cars & exhaust fumes.
