There are conflicting reviews about the dragon slide. Some older reviews indicate the dragon slide has been dismantled, but as of our visit in September 2017, the old dragon slide has since been replaced with a new slide. I've attached pictures of the new structure,...More

cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
