We had hired a driver for the day whilst on holiday and arranged to stop off here. As you'd expect there were lots of butterflies but also fish to feed and other insects to look at. All very pretty. I'd say we were there for an hour at the most. I don't think I would go again and am glad... More

Came here with my 5 children. It was ok I guess but I'd rather have spent the money going somewhere else! We walked around it in 20 minutes expecting lots of butterflies but there really wasn't that many.

If you are in the area with your children and got some spare time left, an hour is more than enough. I wouldn't go there a second time, there are better places to spent your time at.

I have been to the Phuket Butterfly & Insect World on several occasions when I go to (try) take photos of butterflies. Received a warm welcome with a drink of what might have been butterfly food, some red sweet cold drink, probably rosella tea. I went with a Chinese Malaysian friend who happens to speak Thai very well. There was... More

My girlfriend persuaded me it go with her and the kids. Th place is fairly small. It starts with a fairly small insignificant exhibit which you just feel like passing through. After this you enter the butterfly garden which is fairly small and not very interesting. Yes there are butterflies flying around, providing a nice ambiance, but this is pretty... More

We visited this place with a baby and a two year old. Lots of butterflies very few people, and lots of fish to eat which for my two year old was the highlight. I would go back and recommend the place to others. Good cafe as well to shelter in during the rain.

Me and my girlfriend took a peaceful walk around the gardens and were very surprised at just how good it was. The gardens are beautiful, butterflies magical and was even educational. Definitely worth a visit!
