We like a good time and aren't yet in the mad-about-gardens age group but I can say this was the best experience we had in Phuket. It's so beautiful, so natural, well cared for, so authentically Thai that we could have walked around it three or four times - but we had a taxi waiting! The welcome from staff was wonderful, they take your photo sitting at the floral entrance and you get great maps which you don't really need as the areas are well marked out. The exotic plants were amazing and so its a photographers dreamland. There are lots of interesting garden structures and decorations to compliment the flowerings. The food is very ordinary though so eat before you come. We thought the price was fair, given the work neatness and quality of displays. (We had to smile, the English garden wasn't up to the quality of other 'special' settings they had created.). Its about a 15 min drive from Patong we think, and you can negotiate a morning trip to see other sites in a fixed price.
