Royal Botanical Gardens Reviews
2018年2月に行ってきました。キャンディ自体が個人的にかなり、好きな街だったのですが、ここも落ち着く場所でした。地元カップルのイチャイチャも見れて、世界中どこでも似たようなとこでカップルはイチャイチャしてるんやなと考えにふけってました。（ところで俺一人で何してるんやと真剣に考えたw）植物園、広いです。しっかり見たいなら、半日よりは一日レベル。芝生広場みたいなのあるので、昼寝とかフリスビーとかお勧... more »I went there in February 2018. Candy itself was my personal favorite city, but it was also a place to settle down. I was able to see the local couple's flirting, and the couple was addicted to the idea that they were flirting with similar things everywhere in the world. (W) Botanical Garden, which i thought seriously about what I'm doing alone is wide. If you want to see it well, it's more than half a day. Because it is like a lawn plaza, I recommend a nap or a frisbee! It should not have been so expensive though the entrance fee was paid at the entrance. I ate it leisurely inside because I can buy bread in the shop next to it. The lemon bread you eat with candy is too good. About 20SRe. You can go by regular bus, but you might walk a little from the bus stop. I had no sense of direction, so I went to a nearby university by mistake. No, it's good.

This place cant be listed as a must visit. But it has a beauty and calmness of its own. Its a huge place with a huge number of different types of trees. If one visits this place then the Orchid garden is a must visit. It has various types of orchids present. I have taken a few clicks and shared them too.
Stunning garden, well laid out, but of course if you go to see one thing, you can be sure you've just missed, or you to early for another. You need a good day and guide to fully appreciate it all. We had a few hours (day trip) but loved it. Seeing the fruit bats was a bonus. I would go again.
