  • The forest of Liszal was very entertaining! Even the infant was able to touch it a little though it was not possible to have food for the child because it came near very much when having food. I think that it is a feeling that it is able to visit with the family and crush it for about half a day!

  • Everyone writes about monkeys, but I didn't dare buy food for monkeys. My husband bought the food, they covered it. One jumped on my back, which scared me a lot. But it turned out that monkeys can be lured to themselves not only forage! They'll come to the soda tap if you turn it on. I decided to wash my son's hands, turned on the water.... and the monkeys ran off to drink water. They sat on my hand and drank from my hand! Yes, these monkeys are something so positive! But in addition to monkeys, I have singled out wonderful species. You walk on a wooden bridge, and in front of you are trees and water. It's beautiful. Recommend! You can have lunch there.
