Very friendly staff. We got to hold walking sticks and walking leaves as well as lizards. They also have a butterfly garden where big and colorful butterflies come really close. Only about 30 min by car from Chiang Mai centre

We especially enjoyed the hands-on nature of this zoo. Not only do they have a wonderful butterfly house, my two daughters were able to pick up and hold baby tortoise, baby bearded dragons, iguana, walking sticks (Thailand has the two largest specie) and other cool insects. We would highly recommend this very genuine reasonably priced zoo

There are several attractions geared to tourists along the Mae Rim corridor, such as the elephant show, tiger zoo, etc. I had not anticipated visiting the insect zoo, not being a huge fan of them, but was glad I did. On first entering the facility, it just seemed to be a collection of butterflies and beetles from around the world,... More

I normally wouldn't review such an excursion, but this outing was so wonderful. We went as a family and they were so wonderful with my son. This is a great thing to do with kids and even if you are quite squirmy about insects - like me. Still go. You'll be so pleasantly surprised. A perfect trip.

I work with insects for a living, so this was a no-brainer activity for me. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and passionate about their jobs. One staff member let me rummage through their collection of Mantids and played with the scorpions with me. Very fun little place on the mountain.

Well presented zoo in the countryside. There is a small museum of insects with a wealth of information as well as a good collection of bugs and a few reptiles too. We walked through a delightful butterfly garden and learnt a lot...my children loved running about and asking questions to enthusiastic staff. We were able to handle caterpillars, cockroaches, stick... More

We spent about two hours with a group of children aged 2-10. The displays were interesting to the older kids and the adults, while the hands on parts were good for all ages. Nice way to spend a morning, especially if you combine it with something like the Elephant Poopoo Paper Factory, which isn't far away. Both are about twenty... More

If you have an hour to spare, make sure you bring the kids here. It's a great little insect zoo that has lots of little critters to look at hold. Well worth the visit..
