“A sure relaxing place to just take an early morning stroll or evening exercise. Meet the locals and join them for Tai-Chi, vocal practice, hiking and just walk round and round...There is a bamboo park, an amazon lily pond, and lots of local floral and fauna. After a good morning stroll, as you exit the park and opposite the Indian temple, drop by BeeBee for a healthy capati or LSY Organic for a healthy breakfast. There are also two fruit stalls that make Pure fresh fruits smoothie. For a hearty breakfast, there is Big Ben Western and Garden Paradis next to it.”
