Loads of butterflies

Loads of butterflies. This place is small but not bad. When I went they had cocoons on display. Worth a look if you like butterflies

Recommended to us by fellow travelers, so on a lazy day we headed here to explore. We were not disappointed but again it was just like a pleasant stroll in the garden.

There were a lot of butterflies when we visited. It was a nice outing for what it was. The gift shop is fairly expensive in comparison to some of the other shops who offer the same items. It was fun once, but I don't think I'd visit again.

We paid 600baht for 2 adults and 1 child. The place was a disappointment. It was run down and there were hardly any butterflies there. There was also an insect display but it too was ordinary and some of the exhibits were damaged. Not worth your time to visit.

It was a nice outing however the building seemed a little old and it was a little overpriced at 300 THB per person.

A small but interesting place. Some bizarre looking insects. Some of the insects appeared dead and the fish where difficult to see as the ponds were so dirty. Needs some work.
