What to explore at Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom?

The beautifully landscaped garden features many colourful tropical flowers so, along with the multihued butterflies. The butterfly section looks like a big open-air garden but it is actually covered with netting, allowing the butterflies to fly freely but never beyond the limited area.

This garden is also a good place to study butterfly host plants where the female butterflies lay their eggs, for example blood flower (red head cotton), Mexican creeper (or coral vine) and marigold. There are a number of exotic flowers around Samui Butterfly Garden including cyrtostachys lakka (lipstick palm), ptychosperma palm, and bird of paradise – all indigenous to the area.

Another interesting stop is an enclosed structure known as the bee house (it was actually built as a Thai-style house) on top of the replica waterfall in the garden centre.

Insect World features rare insects from Thailand and other countries such as various kinds of scorpions and big spiders as well as less scary types of insects such as stick and leaf insects. Nearby is an exhibit of cocoons and caterpillars.

Bring along your swimming suit as not far from Samui Butterfly Garden are beautiful coral reefs at Wang Bay. Visitors can choose to observe them either by staying dry in a glass-bottom boat or by snorkelling above them; the boat is well equipped with wet suits, snorkels and masks.

We stumbled upon this new attraction on Koh Samui after reading reviews on the existing Butterfly Garden and decided we'd check this park out instead. You will not be disappointed here. The Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom imitates butterflies' natural habitat in the park's large enclosure. The park is beautifully landscaped with tropical plants, trees of all sorts, and small waterfalls. You can witness the various butterfly life cycles in action at the park all the while having mature butterflies flying around you. In addition to seeing thousands of colourful butterflies, the park also has different insect species for viewing, including: millipedes, a tarantula, scorpions and a bee house.The staff was very friendly and our guide provided us with very good knowledge during our tour on the different insect species we were looking at. Once the guide tour was complete, we were left to explore the park more on our own. The grounds are very well kept and the park is quite tranquil. At the main entrance, there was a young playful monkey who likes to take people's things, so hang on to your valuables. The park also has clean toilet facilities on site. The park is located a short distance east of the Namuang Waterfall entrance. This attraction would be good for any age visitor.The entrance fees in April 2012 were $200Baht for adults and $100Baht for children and this included access to the butterfly and insect park with a short guided tour. Their brochure also indicates they have an option to include a monkey show, but the monkey show was not available the day we visited the park. They also offer transport to and from various parts of Samui for an additional cost.

Маленькие, худенькие бабочки(((((( Очень жалко! Их мало, а стоит это удовольствие дороговато. Мы больше не поедем в этот парк!

Der Schmetterlingspark ist absolut heruntergekommen, es liegen mehr tote Schmetterlinge herum, als fliegen. Bienen- und K채ferhaus sind verfallen. Der Eintritt betr채gt 300B Baht, eine einzige Unversch채mtheit.
