Lit up at night the towering Pergoda seems to float above the tropical gardens like a hanging paper lantern. A concertina of intricate layers piled one atop the next, the oriental peaked roofs jutting out like petals into the inky night sky.
The evening is warm around us and festive music of traditional making hums through the park as we walk. A faint breeze carries the exotic fragrant scent from the nearby garden plants that grow around this beacon of Asian ingenuity and design. A spectacular sight of traditional craftsmanship and beauty.
