  • Botanical gardens are the best!!! There was a big queue so we thought it will be crowded in there but it wasn’t because it’s so massive and people spread out. We spent around 2 hours there but I think you need more to really enjoy and to walk around the whole thing. It was beautiful, such an incredible oasis in the middle of the city!
