Nope not for me. The plant arrangements makes no sense what so ever. It looksa like they randomely picked plants and put them wherver they like too. There is some art present but some of it is so big you cannot see the plants behind it.

Loads too see, plenty to look at just watch out for the mosi's and don't expect much or anything at all from the restaurant. Other than that a very peaceful, relaxing quaint little place with small but detailed gardens from around the world. A butterfly den, mini museum, ponds with large fish and other things to do you just have... More

My Wife and I have travelled to a fair few Botanical Gardens in South East Asia and this has to go down as the worst we have ever visited. Haven driven for a fair time to get there our immediate impression was not too good and it went down hill from there. Having paid 1000 Baht to get in (which... More

We should have been tipped of by our local driver not knowing what we were talking about. The botanic garden is in quite a remote location, and it was not well-maintained. There was no signage giving the details of each plant, only small cards with names on the occasional plant. There was lots of greenery, but not many exotic or... More

I may have gone out of season, it being wet season now, but it seemed to be a lot of green and not a lot of depth to each type of garden. For instance, the herb garden was a couple of herbs in glass jars or potted plants. the bamboo garden had a bit of bamboo in a small enclosure.... More

Good way to spent 1-2 hours. Entry price of 500baht is a bit much. I think that they would get more visitors if entry was 200-300 baht. Most info was in Thai, but the gardens themselves are well set out. Lots of photo opportunities! Koi pond was great, not 1 butterfly in the butterfly house :( If you love plants... More

Some interesting aspects to the garden, information in English, but could have been more informative, particularly about the herbs and spices. The butterfly house very disappointing; we only saw four! If you react to insect bites, make sure you are coated with repellant.

The facade is beautiful. The cost is 500 baht per person. The red entrance gives you an anticipation of what's behind the beautiful red gate only to be disappointed! The themed gardens were not great. The orchids garden was very poor. You would think that you'll see a lot of orchids since this is Thailand. The man made lake is... More
