    The North of the Island is much more lush than the South as it gets all the rain, stopped by the volcano, there is a park there that was originally a parrot preservation centre and has grown to huge proportions over the years, they are very closely associated with Seaworld and have recently started with Orca that came from orlando - it is a beautiful place thick lush green and beautiful flowers everywhere,











    First up was the penuinarium which was virtually identical to the one at seaword, as such it was really very dark in there and it was snowing hard on the penguins


    See he has a small green ribbon around his arm so you can pick him out on the luggage carousel

    The dolphin and whale shows were spectacular , and as it was such a multicultural audience there was no commentary. The arenas were nearly as big as Orlando - these were taken from the back row of the arenas - I love this lens















    Hang on...uploading more.....

    Was he too big to cram into the suitcase?

    Yes as he was mainly water we couldn't take him on as hand luggage and had to check him in

    looks great, the light in the canaries is lovely. The park looks lovely, why the Thai influence?

    There is a very close link with the Owner and the royal family in Thailand, I believe he is also passionate about parrot protection - anyway the roof of the building has Thai handmade tiles on it and it is edged in 24k gold leaf
