Please don't forget to skip the bug repellent when you go haha! And buy at least two packets of the 20baht bags of fish food. So much fun feeding the koi!!!

A bit on the pricey side compared to the Aquarium as we paid 300B per person. Nonetheless it was still a quaint little place and there was not just butterflies but also some fish and a few other exhibitions. All and all not a bad experience. Our little baby girl enjoyed the flowers and fish.

We stopped at this place on way back to airport as we had plenty of time. 300BHT entry fee per person is reasonable. The place is quite interesting and well maintained. Maybe not worth a detour (nothing is really far in Phuket) but worth a stop in the way to Phuket town for example.

I was surprised at how great this place was. Although not big, it provides you with a look at the local insects in the area, spiders etc. My favourite part was the butterfly breeding room. Worth a visit.

A great venue and packed with educational displays. Pleasantly set up and quite large. Don't know whether butterflies are seasonal but there didn't seem to be as many as I would have expected (especially when comparing to the butterfly house in Melbourne Zoo a month earlier). Pleasant way to spend an hour or so

Lovely to see all the butterflies. Plenty of information given. Took some nice pictures. Our daughter enjoyed feeding the fish. Unfortunately even though she stood quietly still no butterfly landed on her to give her that extra enjoyment. We're greeted at the car by a charming lady with honey flavoured iced tea - lovely gesture.

Hi readers. This is a really lovely spot to visit. It is quiet and jam packed with information. My wife is a teacher and said that this place, if back in Sydney, would be jam packed with excursions. This is our second time here and really on the insistence of our eight year old boy. He loves the exhibits. His... More

We visited the butterfly garden with our two teeagers. At the entrance we recieved some juice to drink, and some mushed banana to attract the butterflies. Remember to buy a package of fishfood (20 bath) to feed the fish in the garden. First there were some insects and scorpions (most of them were alive) before we entered the butterfly cages... More

I love the butterfly and insect world. Heaps of information to look at, bugs and fossils. Really enjoyed being able to wander through the garden observing the butterflies and bugs and very large goldfish or karp? Very hot inside with the butterflies even hotter once you get to the last room. I had an ickling that the tea they give... More

Visited yesterday, kids ( 6 and 8) loved it due to butterfly's landing on you and pleasant garden setting, Great spot to unwind and simply chill out.
