#3 of 7 in Parks in Phuket Town
Garden Nature / Park
Stroll through a sea of lush greenery at Phuket Botanic Garden. This impressive horticultural feat features various collections of tropical and exotic plants in over 30 zones. The soothing, colorful displays include tropical palms, an herb garden, many fragrant plants, fruit orchards, and an orchid pavilion. The immaculate facilities include soft music drifting in the background to enhance the garden displays. Organized by theme, the gardens are accompanied by fish, birds, and butterflies. Bring your own snacks if you want, since the small cafe on site offers limited choices. Plan your visit to Phuket Botanic Garden and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Phuket Town trip itinerary builder.

  • Expected a lot of flowers but not to be. Various plants/trees but very few in flower. A butterfly house with few butterflies and not many in the grounds (although it was a damp day). Large fish of var...  more »

  • Overpriced with hardly a plant description. And the kicker, besides a myriad of garish and out of place decorative ornaments, was quite a few fake flowers. If you want to see plants go to a commercial nursery.
  • Nothing to visit.. complete waste of time and money. Not even a single butterfly in Butterfly garden..
  • Though small, it is a very good botanic garden. It can take about 2 hours to round the entire thing. However, the ticket is overpriced for foreigners (1000 THB per person as of Dec 2016)
  • Credit card facility at first didn't work. Then somehow it worked the second time. But I got charged currency conversion rate by their local bank instead of Thai baht. I tried to explain to them that I want to pay in Thai baht they couldn't understand. At the end I just gave up. The park itself is pretty and a nice place to take photos. Apart from that there isn't much. We spent an hour there. I don't think anyone would take more than 2 hours to visit this place. Admission price is too expensive. I paid $64AUD for 2 adults and 2 children. Phuket Zoo is nearby and admission price is the same. We spent over 3 hours there. More value for money in my opinion
  • Expensive with few interest. First botanic garden ever seen with false flowers
