Very lush. Divided into "rooms" with Fern, Bromeliad, Cacti, English, Rainforest, etc.and a butterfly house. Well signed and layed out, easy walking. Worth a visit.

Very relaxing environment. Plenty to see and discover. The garden is well built so navigation trough it all is fairly easy and low risks of getting confused our lost along the way.

My wife and my child with mild rain fell on a cool day when we visited this spectacular garden. Flowers are very diverse and beautiful and very scenic. Negatives: There was no one to advise or explain a bit about flowers.

Though I liked the garden n the ideas of showcasing different styles of gardens, 500baht per person is too steep n not worth it. The orchids n butterflies were alright n the fish pond in the center were the best parts but other than that the rest seems to just fall flat. Personally the price is too high n nothing... More

500 Baht or adults to enter which seems high to me, although it is beautiful and had nearly no one around when we visited. Maybe I'm not enough into flowers, but I wouldn't need to go back even though the exhibitions were pretty.

Illogical plant placement seems to be the achievement here. Having different styles of gardens could be an interesting idea however it wasn't capitalized on. Other reviews mention the fish feeding but there was no fish food left to buy, and no staff around to ask for more. The gardens were empty and we visited on a Saturday. I won't write... More

Looked nice at the entrance, but after paying 500 baht to enter (a little pricey), it was all downhill from there. The various gardens are not well maintained, the various plants are not well marked, and the flowers were scarce and not in good condition. This place is in dire need of some TLC. Not worth your time or money.
