  • I was really surprised to see how beautiful and clean looking the water was. The plants are so lush in the middle of summer too. We scooted around for a while up and down the river and the bridge was a nice highlight. HOT TIP - I would be careful which scooter or bike you choose and some companies will limit the speed you can do. Mine went for 20km to 5km and it was not worth using.
  • It's a must if you have already seen the Royal Palace before. It's just 1km apart. It's perfect for a relaxing walk due to the park right next to it.
