Nice place to spend hours. Common activity is boating, shopping, toy train etc. A nursery is there to purchase beautiful plants. A number of games there to make you fully mad. At the end don't forget to enjoy delicious food offered inside the campus.

Extremely overcrowded. Dirty water and surroundings Dilapidated boats Banks are full of shops and eateries. No rule, no authority. Entry fee-YES! Seems you are in a fish market. Play things are reduced to near-junks.
