Features
Quirky/offbeat, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

In a city full of high-tech thrills and cutting-edge adrenaline injections, it's sometimes nice to step back and surround yourself with more analogue, natural wonders. These 50 acres of perfectly landscaped gardens are home to some 2,000 plants across 230 tropical and subtropical varieties. Tranquility and beauty wash over you as you meander through the dozens of distinct gardens, from bamboo and butterflies to vines and vegetables. It's a living paradise, cultivated over decades by enthusiasts and a wonderful place to decompress. The charismatic, trained docents lead group tours if you're looking for a little more detailed knowledge about the flora.
