See the map below for better direction. You will note that it is also close to the JJ Mall as well as the MRT Chatuchack Station.
Bangkok Butterfly Garden
The Bangkok Butterfly Garden is home to thousands of colorful butterflies which are all housed underneath a giant 15-meter-tall open-air dome. The butterfly park is large and makes for a good day trip with its 1,100 square meters area. There is also exhibition rooms showcasing life cycle of insects and makes for a good learning experience for children. The opening hours is Tuesday – Sunday, 8.30 a.m.-4.30 p.m. Note that the park is not too far from the Bangkok Bus Station in Thailand.
Enthusiasm fills our hearts for this remarkable place, a hidden gem in Bangkok City. Unbeknownst to me, such a haven even existed in this bustling metropolis. If your passion lies with butterflies and insects, this destination is an absolute must-visit in Bangkok. Spanning over two acres, the area houses a multitude of fluttering butterflies. As you stroll through the grounds, you’ll be delighted by the sight of these winged creatures adorning the skies. Should you find yourself seated on the garden benches, don’t be surprised if these delicate insects choose to alight upon you.
Adorned with petite waterfalls and verdant spaces, the gardens offer a serene ambiance that’s perfect for a leisurely picnic with your loved ones. The best part? Entry is completely free, making it an even more enticing opportunity. While exploring the Chatuchak Market, make sure not to overlook this enchanting butterfly paradise. Allocate some time during your visit to this unique sanctuary.
Having explored both Chatuchak and Wachirabenchathat Parks for a few hours, we dedicated a portion of our time to this complimentary enclosure. As many have experienced, locating this treasure can be quite a challenge. Through personal experience, I found that Google Maps provides the most accurate guidance. Positioned just across the street from the park adjacent to the BTS stations near Chatuchak market, this place beckons. Dont get this confused with BTS Bang Chak Station.
If your journey commences from the transit station, crossing over a bridge toward the ‘Park Office’ and Kamphaeng Phet Rd is your route. A gate awaits your entry, leading you to meandering paths (relying on Google for direction is advisable, as signage is sparse). Within lies the structure you seek, adorned with captivating displays.
While my visit yielded fewer butterflies than anticipated, the arrangement of the butterfly enclosure was nonetheless captivating. Witnessing it was indeed a pleasure, though it might not be an experience I’d go out of my way to repeat. However, it’s essential to note that the park’s expanses and trails offer an outstanding escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. If tranquility and a respite from urban life are what you seek, this sanctuary presents an ideal solution. Note that Or Tor Kor Market is also close to this. See also the Viva Garden Serviced Residence on here. Lastly note that the Kamphaeng Phet MRT Station is a distance from the place.
