What we say: 4 stars

The British built this central reservoir in1868 to store fresh water, and a whole park has developed around it with walking trails, kayaking and food kiosks.

Despite how manicured the park is you'll still see huge monitor lizards swimming in the reservoir and the occasional lion-tailed macaque.

The latest addition is the HSBC treetop walk, a suspension bridge connecting the park's two highest hills, which offers a great view of the canopy.
