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!

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
