During my visit a year ago I made this picture of the garden and Lake of Pairi Daiza.

History Pairi Daiza
In 2006, "The Dream of Han Wu Di" opened, the largest Chinese garden in Europe, with cranes, three red pandas and currency yak. In 2007, the Falconry Village was opened, a row of large aviaries with different species of raptors and a walk through aviary with vultures and other birds of prey. In 2008 Paradisio launched a large Indonesian territory.
Since its inception, the bird participated in several breeding programs to preserve and protect endangered species. Thus, the Chinese government in 2014 two Chinese giant pandas Hao Hao and Xing Hui, lent to the park for a period of 15 years. [3]
In 2007 visited more than 635,000 people this park. In 2012 this had risen to 955,000, [4] this was the most popular zoo in Belgium. On September 1, 2013 the park had one millionth visitor of the year [5] A total of 1.243 million people visited the park in 2013. The number of visitors rose in 2014 to 1.39 million.
