    Excellent fun and engaging for the family. We paid thb 200 per adult and thb 150. The staff are friendly and they are very knowledgeable about the various insects. The highlight was much children hold various lizards, caterpillars and insects. Well worth a visit with children and there is a fantastic family Thai restaurant 150m along the road.
