The air is fresh and it is very refreshing to sit by the huge pond. Ducks and swans often swim by and it is quite common to see people throwing in crusts of bread. There are also fish in the pond.

At the Botanical Gardens there is a wide variety of plants and trees to see and many interesting and exotic orchids are also grown there. You can see a clock made of small plants.
