  • I enjoyed this place,but was a little underwhelmed. While the butterfly farm was nice,I felt as if they needed to add some more space. The space for selling goods was larger. The orchids are beautiful...  more »

  • A good place to have a quick break from the Chiang Mai countryside heat and/or for a buffet meal while driving to and from the various scenic spots around Chiang Mai. There was a wide selection of orchids on display - but that was it though - a display. I would have preferred a more natural presentation of the flowers. Same with the butterflies - a number were active in spite of the heat, but they were all in a very confined space. So, when it's hot and humid, the area is almost unbearable. One can tell by the number of tour buses and mini-vans parked outside the facility, that this can quickly become a tourist trap as they also sell lacquered orchid petals or flowers and environmentally-correct harvested butterfly wings. One can still enjoy the offerings as long as one doesn't fall for the trap.
  • Another exotic place to visit in the Chiang Mai region. The bai orchid is a quiet environment with a well-groomed garden, ponds and greenhouses, which there are suspended thousands of Orchids, of all colors and different species. Then through a mystical door bring you in a little ecosystem where hundreds of butterflies of many colors and sizes flutter here and there, some are hidden among the leaves.
  • Really disappointing. I would have called it a tourist trap if the entry fee was higher than 40 baht. There was an incredibly high amount of tourist bus compared to the quality of the attraction. The butterfly garden is very small with butterfly that you can easily spot in the nature. The orchids are in a row, there is really no atmosphere here. Two stars are for the food buffet which was ok.
  • Nice butterflys and orchids. Toilets are clean and the food is good. Not a must see but when you travel around it is a short visit worth.
  • Nice place for a stop and quick visit. Plenty of Orchids on display, as well as butterflies. There is a stall which sells items relating to orchids and butterflies as well as a small cafe that has pretty decent coffee.
