Far from the madding crowd, these botanical gardens bristle with hundreds of tropical species from date palms to monkey puzzle trees. Spread across 7 hectares, it’s a peaceful, shady retreat on a sweltering summer’s day. A highlight is the Macau garden, complete with minipagoda, where bamboo rustles and a cool stream trickles.

Tots love to clamber over the gnarled roots of a banyan tree and spot the waddling ducks and geese. Admission is free for under 12s.
