  • You should definitely stop by here if you are at the Kuang Si waterfalls. The garden is just under 500m in front of it and has 2 parking spaces of its own. For about €4am (as of Mar 2018) you get a good overview of the tour in addition to the entrance and get detailed explanations about the individual stations in many different languages. In addition, there is a guide in the actual butterfly garden, which tells you once again everything about the butterflies and their life cycle and illustrates you with examples. Best to come between 10am-3pm, the butterflies are most active. There is also a small pond in the middle of the garden where you can keep your feet in a natural fish spa and enjoy the atmosphere. A great place to stop and slow down.
