Incredible. I especially enjoyed that there were some humour in the placement of some of the miniature people. Try spotting the golfer being eaten by a crocodile or the horse beating up his rider. Impeccable attention to detail. Train ride is a nice touch. Pram...More

Was a great place to visit. The level of detail in the miniature buildings is amazing, the manicured lawns and gardens are stunning. Nice little coffee shop with good quality coffee.

Very interesting walk around the area, looking at the miniatures, especially in the international area. Great buildings, that took thousands of hours to build and are a great insight to that of different countries. Takes around an hour to walk around
