Small charming botanical garden.
Probably the creation of an enthusiast.
The garden has an impressive number of plant varieties.
The garden is organized on the plan of a theme trail.
Unless you are an erudite botanical enthusiast, it takes less than an hour to go around it at the speed of a snail.
To visit without regrets if you do not watch your travel budget.
The advantage of the price is that you will not be attacked by the crowd!

Mosquito HQ. Terrible experience - we were attacked by hundreds if mosquitos and blood sucking flies right after entry. No where to hide. We applied repellent but all these insects kept attacking us bon-stop. All you want is to rush to the exit instead of enjoying the greenery. Even taking pictures was not an option. We felt cheated as we paid THB 500 per person - an expensive entry price per Thailand standards. Gave a comment to the receptionist on mosquito issue - he attempted to sell us hands sanitizer as a remedy. Hilarious! Bring you money to the businesses that care about customers and do fumigation.

The certificate of excellence was 2015 and that's when clearly the gardens had some money spent on it. Since then it appears to have been rather neglected.

Agree with other reviewers:
Birds forlorn in too small cages (especially the peacocks-they should be roaming)

Plastic flowers and other tat horrible.

It should not advertise a butterfly area if there are no butterflies.

Restaurant...?

Some fish do appear poorly and should be removed.

Some parts of the gardens which were being watered were in better shape.

We did not see a single gardener or active staff person during our 2 hour visit.

The most interesting wild life was the variety of birds in the trees.

Overall, in need of tender loving care (TLC) and compared to many botanical gardens we have visited in other countries this one is barely 2 star.

A shame - it could be so much better 😕

500 bhat per person is way too much. Lots of mosquitos. Not very big. Caged birds are not happy, should have set them free. Fish feeding has caused eye injuries to some fish fighting for food. Lot of dead plants. Fake flowers. Overall not worth it.

Most of the plants were half dead, there was not one single butterfly in the butterfly garden - apparently they all got sick and died. The winter garden was an air conditioned room with fake plastic flowers.
When we asked for refund the women at the front desk abused us and refused to get manager or refund any money.
Absolute waste of time and money (500B each entry) took about 15mins to walk through the whole place.

We went here in the hope of seeing what one would expect from a botanical gardens but sadly we were disappointed. It is small but not even well designed. Even some of the nicer displays were totally ruined by weird looking, tasteless ceramic gnome like objects that looked totally out of place. It was almost comical like someone’s gran had gone around placing tat from the local Chinese shop. I really wouldn’t bother...

Very bad. Too high ticket price to see very few nice things: it means some orchids. It looks old, not too much clean.
Question: where are the butterflies if there is a butterflies garden?

Interesting installations, but not much of any botanical interest. It is very expensive for what it is.

Travel info said this garden has 30 zones of exotic and rare plants which are totally over stated. The garden does have 30 zones but each zone is only a tiny 20 to 30 square meters with only a few common collections of plants. We walked slowly but it took us 50 mins to complete the walk. It costs 500 bahts a visit. For us it's not worth the time and is a waste of money. The Botanical garden does not even match the gardens of the resort that we stay in.

My husband and I went on Monday 28/10. There were only a few visitors. Full price for adult is 500 Baht. We had a last minute deal for 300 Baht for 1 adult.To me it is not worth a visit. Plants in the resort we were staying were more beautiful. Gardens By the Bay in Singapore is hundred times better than it.
