Beautiful surroundings, but a bit of a tourist trap. Basically have to pay money to go into a store. Their "demonstration" is 1-2 minutes long
Pretty botanical garden. One enormous 400 year old Samand tree. Lovely tropical feel to the place. Batik work interesting, and ladies working on pieces happy to discuss techniques. Lots of batik for sale, although we did not buy any. Clean toilets. Small cafe area, but we didn't use it, so can't comment. Not a very large place. About an hour to get round for us, but you could do it all in about 20 to 30 minutes, if you didn't really stop to look at the plants.
