Phuket Botanical Garden
Phuket Botanic Garden is an area the size of several hundred meters along which a footpath with a so that you always move in one direction. Entry and exit are located in different places, so you meet no one comes across, no eyes crossed with you, which is why the atmosphere of solitude and tranquility only wins. At the exit from the garden there is a souvenir shop, almost standard Thai theme in tourist places of this nature. It should be noted that implemented more than worthy. Everything is very well done, beautiful and with love.
Do not cease to be amazed at how Thais know how beauty and harmony nature to direct, if you restrict their access to cement. Botanical Phuket garden is a very good example to follow. All seen there, that reminded me of Royal Flora under Chiang Mai, only smaller scale. Well, if you like taking selfies or having fun from photographing beautiful landscapes and bright colors of nature – this is definitely your place. Shots in the Botanical Garden want to do just because every corner looks kissed and obvious that they had a hand in him.

Even I, a man who calmly refers to this kind sights (and, frankly, saw places and more serious scales), was still fascinated and made some two hundred photographs. Part of the park is occupied by small gardens stylized as some theme, like an english garden, a cactus garden, bamboo, japanese and so on.
Each garden is a small area measuring 5 by 5 meters. (not exactly measured), the exterior of which is designed in accordance with the name. There are elements of decor everywhere, many pots with plants, hanging plants, created artificial reservoirs like ponds, streams, there is even a couple of waterfalls.
Inside the Botanical Garden in Phuket has its own an authentic cafe and near it is a magnificent pond in which a lot of pink-red fish swims (if you know how called – write in the comments). There are so many fish, and the water is so clean that you don’t even need to throw food into the water in order to take a couple of shots like mine. Lure, by the way, is sold, and You can please this fish kingdom.
The only thing that did not like when visiting Botanic Garden what is closer to the end of the path you go through the Butterfly Garden, and as usual in such gardens, butterflies you will not see here. Perhaps it was some special day and they were hiding from the heat, but how many of them I I looked around myself and under the bushes – I did not find one. No one. I will not even upload a photo of what this garden looked like.
The garden even has its own hotel – Phuket Botanic Resort. Great place to sleep if you love nature. Given the man-made grandeur around, there was a couple of nights here would be at least interesting. Some resort bungalows come out windows and doors to the pond, so that in the absence of visitors in the garden you expect some pretty interesting emotions. I would not say that to spend here more than three days will be sensible thought, still to the sea far away. It is rather an option for gaining interesting experience and diversity on vacation.
Although I visited the Phuket Botanical Garden at 3 pm and the sun was still shining, it was cool in the garden itself – perhaps because of the fountains and ponds. But because of them they ate me mosquitoes, and in a populous tourist place it is quite dangerous The topic and money in Asia has not been canceled yet. So it makes sense take a repellent. And that is typical in Thailand, usually during the day mosquitoes you will not find anywhere, they appear only after sunset, and here they were just darkness.
My resume is the coolest garden. You can go looking for hours interesting angles for photos, including selfies. Park just imprisoned for this business, many benches are equipped here or special mimic places for photos. And all this man-made The architecture is well-written in the outline of the botanical garden. so or on the contrary, the garden harmoniously surrounds places with human creations. And – Yes, in addition to pure aesthetics, you will find here a lot of useful, if you are a fan of flora – many plants are signed. The man, who He came to the Botanical Garden of Phuket because of his interest in plants, also find something for themselves. Although, of course, the price is high. But on price level of all other attractions of Phuket.
There is even a small museum, but the exhibits are not enough

Information to visit
Prices for visiting the Phuket Botanical Garden: adult 500 baht, baby – 300 baht.
The garden is open from 9 to 17 every day, after which the guests disperse and only the tenants of the hotel remain, and the garden becomes its private territory.
I would recommend time to visit to lay from 30 minutes to hours, depending on the time of day. At noon here happens hot enough because of the high humidity, because the jungle – they are jungle.
Excursion “Animal World of Phuket” →
You can visit the bot garden as part of the tour, so as not to go broke by taxi. One of these tours is called “Phuket Animal Kingdom” and there is also the Park of Birds, the Show Krodilov and the Dolphinarium. Pretty rich and the child should enjoy.
