During the week I had a sudden urge to go and find some butterflies to photograph. I found the Bangkok Butterfly Garden and Insectarium near to Chatuchak Park.
The butterflies are free to fly around, in spite of the netting to keep them enclosed. As a rule I much prefer seeing animals in their natural habitat but it was nice to get a little closer to these beautiful little creatures.
The butterfly garden is located in Rot Fai Gardens-just across the road from Chatuchak Park. It’s a little hard to find as all the signs are in Thai but ask a friendly soul, like I did, and they will point you in the right direction.
Located near Mo Chit BTS
Address: Rot Fai Gardens (near Chatuchak Market), Kamphaeng Phet 3 Road Road, Chatuchak, Chatuchak, Bangkok 10900
