I thought this would be full of beautiful butterflies so we stopped by mistake. It’s more of a small holding with caged animals although the host is very friendly. There are monkeys on chains, a caged otter, fish in a very muddy pond plus a...More

Fantastic day out if you enjoy seeing animals suffer!! There are many instances of animal cruelty and neglect here in thailand. But eagles, monkeys and otters here are kept in sad small cages with no space or love. Please don't support this.

I didn't like to see a sea eagle in a cage or little monkeys chained to trees. On the flip-side I liked to see some pineapple plants and butterflies.

Inside aren't butterflies, but enclosed animals. Monkey on a chain without water and other animals in cages.The only interesting are local plants and fruit in the orchard.
