  • The little monkeys are super cute and adorable! They are friendly and if you are lucky they will play with you. They have a great area and it seems like they are treated well. Unfortunately the other animals are not that lucky as you can see in the video. The falken and the water buffalo are caged in tiny spaces and they seem so depressed 😔
  • This place is so nice. I love the monkey park inside the park. Also the whole grounds are beautiful . Restaurant is just mediocre
