The educational center Phuket Butterfly Garden & Insect World is located on the northwestern outskirts of Phuket Town in the Samkong district. In this Butterfly Garden & Insect World you can see the most beautiful exotic butterflies with their exuberant colors. The butterfly garden contains some 40 species of native butterfly species, some of which are always present, while others can only be seen in the summer season. The butterflies in the Phuket Butterfly Garden fly freely in their own tropical paradise. Because the environment is kept moist, it feels here as if you're in a tropical rainforest. Insect World is home to a wide variety of Asian insects. Here live spiders, scorpions, centipedes, beetles, termites and ants.
