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.

My family with a great variant of ages all loved the butterflies and other insects at the farm. It wa s a great experience to be able to pick up some butterflies and see the different nature in phuket. I would definitely recommend this for any family, for any ages.

Just got back from an enjoyable visit to the Butterfly Garden. The experience was a once in a lifetime one. It was bit of a last minute decision but we were glad we went. The butterfly part was definitely the best. They landed on us and seemed completely unafraid. The only downside was that they moved so fast that it... More

Such an amazing place, I love seeing all the little (and BIG) bugs and insects that they have in Thailand. It was amazing to have the butterflies landing on and around us and I was able to get some great pictures! It was 300 THB to get in and well worth the money! You are given some tea as you... More
