The movie in the nature center is well worth watching; ask for it in English is helpful. The preserve provides great views, comfortable walks, and interactive activities for kids. All nature lovers will enjoy this bird sanctuary. There are fun souvenirs to be had.

Walk the trails and visit the exhibition and wonder by the marvelous building clad in reed. A bird watchers Mecca. A hostel nearby offers great lunch and accommodation.
