The many butterflies and flowers were very beautiful but I also loved checking out all the nasty insects.

“Lovely!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

We were greeted by really friendly staff & given a special food for the butterflies. First we entered through the insect part, where we saw a range of live scorpions & very large hairy spiders!
I think the butterflies were well fed, as none came down to the food we were given for them. All the same, the size & colours of some of these beautiful tropical butterflies were truly amazing!
I just wish the parents of the young kids had a bit more control of their screaming & running around scarring the butterflies away!

“Butterflies and insects”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

A well organised and informative display of insects including bird eating spiders and scorpions. Interesting to read the back ground of the life cycle and facts on various insects. The butterfly enclosure was lovely to walk around with a little cup given at reception with mashed banana for them to eat if the opportunity presented. We all stood still in a couple of different areas waiting for a butterfly to land, but it didnt happen. As you leave the enclosure, there is a breeding area room where the butterflies quite happily visit you on your head, hands or clothes. The kids loved this. The overall visit was an hour which was a nice way to start the day.

“Good place for toddlers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We found this place is a toddler friendly (not many in Phuket). Our 2-year-old son enjoyed feeding fish, seeing butterflies and padding the cat living in the park. It's a good place to visit for a few hours.

“My grand daughter loves butterflies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

It was an interesting place. I only wanted to get pictures of the butterflies for my g-dghter. It was a good place to visit since it was overcast and looking for something to do besides shopping and malls. I just wish my grand dghter could have been there in person, got some awesome photos tho.
