PLace is nice, staff is nice, but the garden is small and if you are not a 'professional' you will see all over in 15 minutes. I guess 150B is too much expencive for 15 minutes of fun of this kind. Butterflies are lovely. You can see there also orchid garden, which is similar nice but rather very small, so don't pay extra 50B for the visit, which they want you to. After you finish the visit just walk accross the street, there are many elephants, so you can groom there for free. I strongly not recommend elephants safari which is always and anywhere related with animal torture.

first lets make clear that the review posted by CMH2013 is NOT for the orchid nursery and butterfly garden which is opposite an elephant trecking centre, it is for the butterfly farm about 3kms away on the other side of the island and has photos of the monkeys at the entry.

There is also another orchid farm close by, DO NOT confuse the 3 places as the are all very different.

I visited the orchid and butterfly garden opposite the elephant trecking centre and the owners have NEVER had any animals.

you can spend a few hours here if you were enthusistic but plan about 30-45 mins for the orchids and about the same for the butterflys.

From the information and literature provided its obvious the owner has a passion for orchids and the butterflies. At the moment not all of the orchids have flowers but there are plenty that still do.

worth a small visit to while away a few hours.

entry fees : orchids is 50 baht and butterflies is 150 baht.

well recommended but make sure you go to the right one.

Very interesting place and extremely good value for money. The family who owns the place is really welcoming. It is a good opportunities to visit a local way of life (the family live there) and interesting animals (butterflies, monkeys, hornag, etc). Try to go here and avoid the "monkey school" (about 1km northern) where monkeys are treated in a bad way and the owners are not nice.
