Hi readers. This is a really lovely spot to visit. It is quiet and jam packed with information. My wife is a teacher and said that this place, if back in Sydney, would be jam packed with excursions. This is our second time here and really on the insistence of our eight year old boy. He loves the exhibits. His face changes when a butterfly lands on him. It is just not about butterflies. There are exhibits that relate to insects, bees, silk worms etc. Prices are ok to get in. We hired a driver for six hours for 1200baht which meant he waited for us. There is snacks and coffee etc available here plus an extensive gift shop area. Good place to visit.

We visited the butterfly garden with our two teeagers. At the entrance we recieved some juice to drink, and some mushed banana to attract the butterflies. Remember to buy a package of fishfood (20 bath) to feed the fish in the garden. First there were some insects and scorpions (most of them were alive) before we entered the butterfly cages and the fish ponds. The butterflies were nice, but I had expected a bigger variation in size and colours. The garden includes a pupae house and a breeding room for butterflies. Prices are 300 bath for adults (above 10 years), 150 bath for kids between 4 and 10, and free entrance for kids below 4 years. Opening hours are 9 am - 5 pm. If you dont drive yourself, make the taxi wait for you, as there may be hard to find return transport.
(our son (13 years) rated this 4/5 experience)

I love the butterfly and insect world. Heaps of information to look at, bugs and fossils. Really enjoyed being able to wander through the garden observing the butterflies and bugs and very large goldfish or karp? Very hot inside with the butterflies even hotter once you get to the last room. I had an ickling that the tea they give to to drink at the start must come out in your sweat because the butterflies absolutely flock to you. There is also large catfish, beehives, silk museum and a cafe and shop to end. Loved it
