Phuket Butterfly Garden
and Insect World 

Bright Colourful Butterfly

Breaking News - March 2015

The Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insect World has had to close its doors. As sad as it may be, it's all due to the numbers. Less and less visitors have made it impossible to maintain. And with all the competition, this amazing venue had to shut shop. 

The Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insect World was the perfect place to take your kids when on vacation in Phuket. Not only did the kids get to see lots of beautiful butterflies, but they also got to see some rather scary insects like spiders and scorpions too. Kids love all things scary these days, but you need not have worried as all the scary creatures displayed there, were in safe enclosures.

There was a fabulous educational section where kids would not only see insects, both native to Thailand and other parts of the world, but they would have been able to learn all about them too. There were several butterfly species in a large covered garden area and fifty fish tanks filled with sea life within the grounds.

You could watch a craziest video too. It showed you how eggs were transformed into caterpillars and then finally into butterflies.

Getting to the New Butterfly Garden Venue

Mega Muay Thai is what's coming here now. What ever that is, you'll just have to wait and see. The venue is located just a few kilometres beyond the northern end of Thanon Yaowat Road from Phuket Town at Soi Paneang in the Ban Sam Kong area. Follow the directional signs posted along the way and then look out for the Tesco Lotus Supermarket as it's not far from the gardens.

I have to tell you that there was no public transport going to the  butterfly farm, however, if you liked, you could take a Tuk Tuk from the town center at a cost of around 150 Baht. Having your own vehicle would have been the ideal solution. I believe the establishment provided a shuttle service to and from town.

Entrance to the butterfly farm was 300 Baht for adults and 150 Baht for kids under ten years of age. A little pricey, but well worth taking the kids even if butterflies were not your thing. The grounds were open every day from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.

Should you have gotten hold of a brochure, you'd have found a section showing a layout of the whole place and also a piece telling you to imagine walking through a tropical garden full of flowers while thousands of butterflies flutter all around you.

And don't be surprised if this all seemed like a perfect fantasy world. Though you might not have gotten to see thousands of these creatures, you'd probably only find a few hundred of them. Perhaps the rest were in various stages of metamorphosis.

Though there might have been lots of butterflies, there were lots of caterpillars too. The more you searched for, the more you would have seen. Butterflies appeared to be everywhere in various stages. You'd also have come across beautifully executed signs in both English and Thai describing the various varieties. Together there were around forty different species on the premises as well as a butterfly breeding program.
