Butterfly Garden and Insect World (closed April 2015)

After visiting the Butterfly Garden and Insect World in Phuket Town for the first time I took part in a Butterfly Release.

Now we cannot stay away - our daughter Jemma (2 yrs 8 mths) thinks that the place is wonderful - I wonder if they do a season ticket?

It is a very simple place to visit - you walk through a number of educational exhibits of the butterflies and the insects and then you are invited into the actual gardens. This is the highlight for Jemma - there are a plethora of butterflies and if you are really lucky they will sit on you somewhere.

There is also a breeding room - I am not sure why it is but it is is another location where you can get up close and personal.

There is another room where the butterflies are in cocoons which is also fun. 

Don't forget to feed the fish in the gardens...........

Then there is a silk museum which explains what happens with all the threads from the cocoon.  A wonderful day out - the cost was 300 Baht per adult (over 10 years) - between 4 and 10 it is 150 Baht.
