Most of the plants were half dead, there was not one single butterfly in the butterfly garden - apparently they all got sick and died. The winter garden was an air conditioned room with fake plastic flowers.
When we asked for refund the women at the front desk abused us and refused to get manager or refund any money.
Absolute waste of time and money (500B each entry) took about 15mins to walk through the whole place.

Park looks abandoned when we arrived, we almost didn’t go in and then a lady waved us down. Rubbish throughout the car park and admission was 500 baht per person and mosquito spray 50 baht. We didn’t risk the disappointment for that price thank you

Same as previous reviews, could be amazing! Unfortunately it’s clear whoever owns this place has not invested a penny for years.
We love plants, the owners do. Not.

500 baht should not be given by a single person until
They look after the plants and animals properly.

It’s such a shame as the mature plants are doing so well.

Avoid the wooden walkways. Except the one you have to traverse to leave!!!

Mosquito 🦟 to be expected so prepare accordingly.

Two peacocks in very small cages and should be left to roam. Poor tortoise 🐢 sharing a cage with the peacocks. Water looked old. Terrible.

I love guinea pigs 🐹 and keep many of them at home in 🇬🇧 these poor pigs were in a greenhouse. They had been breeding, who knows if any checks have been done. Their house was dirty and didn’t look like they had much escape from the heat.

This is my first one star review on TA!!!!

If I could have put the pigs in my suitcase I would have done.

I worry what would happen if it shuts down but with some TLC it could and should be a visitor hotspot. Also not far from the Chalong 🛕 so could be a great stop for tourists on the way.

Forewarned is forearmed.

500 bhat per person is way too much. Lots of mosquitos. Not very big. Caged birds are not happy, should have set them free. Fish feeding has caused eye injuries to some fish fighting for food. Lot of dead plants. Fake flowers. Overall not worth it.

The certificate of excellence was 2015 and that's when clearly the gardens had some money spent on it. Since then it appears to have been rather neglected.

Agree with other reviewers:
Birds forlorn in too small cages (especially the peacocks-they should be roaming)

Plastic flowers and other tat horrible.

It should not advertise a butterfly area if there are no butterflies.

Restaurant...?

Some fish do appear poorly and should be removed.

Some parts of the gardens which were being watered were in better shape.

We did not see a single gardener or active staff person during our 2 hour visit.

The most interesting wild life was the variety of birds in the trees.

Overall, in need of tender loving care (TLC) and compared to many botanical gardens we have visited in other countries this one is barely 2 star.

A shame - it could be so much better 😕

This is a terrible place. The lady at the entrance charged us 500 bath per person. The garden was like a random creepy forest. There was nothing! Only trees and swamps. Please dont waste your time and money on this horrible place. Worst experience ever.

Expensive 500 baht entry, cash only. The garden itself is OK in places but the general feel is that plants have not been tended to well, lots appear overgrown or dead in places.

What dropped this from a 3 to a 1 is the two adult peacocks they are clearly breeding in a tiny cage which is adjacent to another cage with their two offspring which were clearly distressed to get to their parents. Also in that same cage was a large mature tortoise in a bowl of dirty water that was unable to escape it. The bowl itself was barely larger than it was and probably about 50cm in diameter.

Avoid.

Turned up and the entrance & car park were completely empty, however we decided to go in as the entrance did look inviting. 500baht per adult to enter - absolutely not worth it at all. I wouldn’t mind paying if the money was spent on maintaining the garden, however it is clearly not. Once inside, we were met with a mosquito haven and a very untidy garden in desperate need of maintenance. They also had many birds in tiny, unclean cages which made us very sad. Two peacocks were hidden away in a very small enclosure and both had lost their feathers and appeared to not be cared for. As soon as we saw this, we headed straight for the exit. Would not recommend at all.

We went here in the hope of seeing what one would expect from a botanical gardens but sadly we were disappointed. It is small but not even well designed. Even some of the nicer displays were totally ruined by weird looking, tasteless ceramic gnome like objects that looked totally out of place. It was almost comical like someone’s gran had gone around placing tat from the local Chinese shop. I really wouldn’t bother...

I had not planned to go to a botanical garden but I was in the area and my tuk-tuk driver took me to this location. I agree with the other visitors. The botanical gardens are not maintained as one would expect. Yes, mosquitoes are breeding. When I finished the tour and walked through the gift store it was dimly lit. I was under the impression that they may be looking for a new buyer.
