Go enjoy the garden and free hot chocolate, massage is not free as you have to tip! DO NOT go in the shop or you really will be ripped off. It's hard sell. BE Warned, government shop or not!

The beginning tour is actually quite nice, but then the doctor comes out and convinces you to buy all these great creams and natural supplements and that they work wonders. Now, I know you should always be skeptical about these things, but this was especially...More
