No idea when it will open again, its a bit tricky to find, walk past the Sunig store on your left, (keep the elevated highway on your right) just past the bus stops you will find it.

My wife and I visited here about 2 years ago. I tried to write a review then, but it was not listed. Perhaps I missed the notification that someone finally realized it was real? We went during the week, a Tuesday I believe. It happened to be the day it was free and the guide was free. I was a... More
