Tips for you
Visited these gardens many times when traveling to the North Coast. The gardens are well maintained with a few glass houses. There is an attractive orchid area with water feature. The gardens are generally quiet apart from holiday time. The views over the lakes are gorgeous. There are troupes of monkeys but they don' seem as pushy as their relatives in Ubud.
