  • Nice location at the waterfront (should that be capitalised?) for some good pics. But other than that nothing much else.  more »
  • Its a nice pleasant monument by the waterfront. It provides a great location from which to take pictures from and it can be easily reached within walking distance from other landmarks in the city.  more »
  • We visited this place and enjoyed the boat ride. We spent a good 2 hours in the water and visited the water village and forest along the waters. A time well spent and memorable.  more »
