This place is so-so. It is fun for those who like insects and seeing rare ones. But all in all its a small place and not really worth the money in my opinion.

A 'hands-on experience' which was great for the kids. The best thing about the Siam Insect Zoo was the staff. It was raining when we entered so the butterflies weren't up to much. Perhaps they do with or their guests but I got the impression that the staff therefore made a really special effort to make sure we had a... More

Well organized, litlle too warm at the exposition, the butterfly garden is nicely planned, don't expect the butterfly to land on you. You can touch scorpion or lizard

The Insect Zoo is about 45 minutes drive from the Old Town area of Chiang Mai. It's not a huge place and not yet overly commercialised, which we really liked. Initially you walk through a little museum area of preserved insects. There is everything on display here, big and small (and there are some really massive insects around!) and you... More

This zoo is small but packs a punch and a good way to spend 30 mins or so. What's good? You will see insects you don't normally see -- beetles the size of my hand and butterflies bigger than a paperback book. There were insects which you would never guess were anything but leaves as well as those that amazingly... More

As you walk in it seems like the same old entomology museum, with a few facts about insects and various and impressive specimens. This just gives you a taste of what awaits you further inside. Once you pass all of that you emerge into the section with the live insects, arachnids, and other wonderful creatures. One of the best parts... More

The zoo is not so big but has a lot of insects. Staff is very friendly and plays a lot with children. Worth the entrance fee of 200 baht

I have learned alot from my visit to this zoo. At first you get a lot of information about insects and what they accually are, at the same time they show you all kinds of insects (not live ones yet) behind glass. After this (which was about 3 rooms), you come to the catterpillars, the staff, who was friendy during... More

If you love orchids, this place is a must in your list. Step inside the building from the hot sun, you will be greeted by a display of colorful pendants and brooches, made from either butterflies or orchids. They were beautiful, indeed! You could buy them for souvenirs. The farm showed lovely orchids. There were lots of species, most of... More

If you are into insects, this is a very nice place. The staff allows you to interact with the insects (sometimes a little too much interaction). It was worth the visit.
