Nice place to spend a day. Better go when it is not too hot. A lot of things to do - can spend even whole day in there.

Beautiful place where you can choose to take your time and walk around or you can go on the mini buses and get off at whatever stops you want. Very nice if you have a spare hour or two.

The entrance is 1500 rs Sri Lankan per head. Ride on the electrical buggy is 2000 rs. Really worth it.
