Also the rose garden and the greenhouse are just breathtaking. And what I like best here is the Japanese garden because the setting is just so serene and tranquil, perfect place to visit if you are in the mood to relax. Also, in the evening, the view here is really magnificent, they had set up lanterns in the Chinese garden. The evening is filled with music and lights and is just simply amazing! Was this helpful?
