There’s the 14,000-square-meter Canopy Park, which will have an endless array of attractions that include gardens, walking trails, dining outlets, and luxury stores. Travelers will be given the opportunity to explore its pathways amid the lush greenery, explore and find their way out of Canopy Maze, bounce up and down Sky Nets, and skid down Discovery Slides.

Perhaps the most fascinating add-on is the Rain Vortex, a 40-meter-high indoor waterfall said to be the tallest in the world. At night, the Rain Vortex—located in the middle of Canopy Park—will be transformed into a spectacular water-and-lights show.
