  1. “Don’t listen, Don’t look and don’t say” ought to be “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”.
    It’s either Japanese (Sanzaru) or Chinese in origin. Confucius is quoted to have said “非禮勿視, 非禮勿聽, 非禮勿言, 非禮勿動”

  2. Hi
    Thanks in advance for your response.
    is the happy valley open in march and do all activities work in this month?
    Is it better to go there in march in weekdays or weekend?
    Thank you.

  3. Hi Sajad,

    Yes, Happy Valley is open in March. As far as I know, all the activities are going on in this month. The Theme of the March is known as “Happy Women Month” ( The 10th Year Happiness and Meeting in Beijing – New Women and Show Ourselves).

    The tourist volume in weekdays is thinner than that in weekends.
