“Excellent”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

During my trip in Phuket, I thought of visiting the Botanic Garden since I love beautiful flowers. I must say that it was not a wrong choice to visit the place. The garden was fairly neat and clean. The flowers and trees were unique. I took around 70-80 pictures of different types of flowers and all. The only thing i was missing is nice foods in the garden.

“Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

We loved visiting the botanic gardens in Phuket. There are lots of different sections (herbs, fruits, orchids, sustainability, English, rainforest gardens etc) which are interesting to wander through and the orchids are spectacular - as expected! And the rainforest walk was very beautiful. We spent a couple of hours here with our family (including young kids) and thoroughly enjoyed it. We met one of the botanists there, a young & very pleasant fellow who was working with his pet iguana on his shoulder. He was more than happy to spend time chatting to us & allowed our kids to hold his iguana!

A few posts have commented negatively on the admission price of 500 baht - it is what it is. Some botanic gardens are free, this one is not, it really is a small price to pay. If you enjoy wandering through gardens, you will find it well worthwhile.

“Nice to spend a few hours”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Very nice garden, well planned, and very quiet and relaxing place. Lots of different themes, all thought out and well executed, albeit some of the themes are quite small.

At 500 Baht per person pricey though.

The price of 500 Baht per person was a shock. Definitely overpriced. We could have had a taxi drive us around Phuket and tourist sites for half a day for around 1200 Baht. Others have commented on layout and content so nothing to add here but is small fry as far as major botanical gardens go. Oh and the constant piped music (?) is still in my head - drove us mad while there and is a blight on the management of the place. The one poor squirrel (or similar looking animal in a cage) was going nuts - I know how it feels.
