Enter this unique glass dome where you will find a land of flowers, ferns, waterfalls and fluttering butterflies. The dome not only provides a natural habitat for the butterflies but also a pleasant (if not a little warm) walk.
On entry there is an exhibition room with educational resources such as photos, explanations, models and specimens. Once you feel satisfied reading all the information, you can proceed into the garden, the main attraction.
Around the garden you will find information plaques about the plants and butterflies that you can see. However, a lot of the information is in Thai.
A winding walkway leads you around the dome. Along this walkway there is a small waterfall and plenty of butterfly food stations which attract the butterflies and other insects.
If you hang around the food stations for long (and still) enough you may just be lucky and have a butterfly land on you!
