Each park requires a separate entrance ticket. The flower park is a very beautiful space, the largest flower garden in the world: 150 million flowers and plants. This is not a botanical garden, so you will not find a wide variety of species here, but you will see the incredible beauty of the figure and construction: an 800-meter green wall, a 10-meter flower pyramid, giant flower figures of fairy-tale characters, a flower castle. The inside of the park is very beautiful, it feels like you are in a fairy tale, especially in the evening when the lights turn on.

There are a lot of butterflies in the pavilion with adults. They fearlessly sit on the hands, feet, heads of visitors. If you are afraid of insects, even such beautiful and harmless ones, it can be uncomfortable there.
