  • If you’re never been on a chairlift, then that’s a reason to go. If photos won’t suffice and you must see the view of the town for yourself, there’s another reason to go. Otherwise, don’t waste your.....  more »
  • great view over the city and surroundings, also a nice walk up/and or down, the entertainment is not so great up there, so just enjoy the view  more »
  • This is a nice area however the weather was not great and we could only see a little part of the landscape and surrounding areas, would be perfect on a nice day  more »

  • Chair lift is a fun way to get up to the top. Great views from the top.
  • Nice view of the city. Looks pretty trashy though. Needs cleaned up.
  • Very good. Colder, nice view. Elephant museum.. free enter.
  • A beautiful view from the city and good place to buy souvenirs!
  • Amazing view of almost the entire city. We also can find a small craft fair.
