A peaceful experience

What we say: 3.5 stars

Run by an interesting Norwegian chap, the butterfly and orchid farm is set in a nondescript locale off Phet Kasem Rd in Khuk Khak, at the end of a tiny dirt road surrounded by forest.

It's not a huge place, but worth the trip, particularly for the butterfly farm that features several species of colourful butterflies in a small, tranquil area that includes some flowers and other plants that are favoured by the butterflies. You can also check out different types of caterpillars in small, controlled glass cases as they make their way towards metamorphoses.

The orchid farm, while also small, features a pretty collection of many types of orchids, including a few that are apparently very rare. The owner is extremely passionate and informative about both orchids and butterflies, and he sells baby orchids grown from seeds in sterile bottles that are allowed through customs in most countries.

It costs 200B per person to see both farms (50 for the orchids and 150 for the butterflies).
