Phuket Botanical Garden - for plant lovers and selfies

Phuket Botanical Garden - pretty pleasantplace, and already by name you can guess (who would doubt) that there is for general public presented the mass of species of tropical plants in Thailand, and all that is associated with them. Due to the climate of the kingdom, all the diversity of flora is demonstrated not in closed pavilions and greenhouses, but in the open air, in the form of a chic tropical garden. And it is precisely to this format of attractions that you should prepare for, heading to Botanic Garden - a pleasant long walk through a very beautiful garden.

Phuket Botanical Garden

Phuket Botanic Garden isan area of ​​several hundred meters in size, along which the footpath is laid so that you always move along it in one direction. The entrance and exit are located in different places, so no one comes across to meet you, does not intersect with you, which makes the atmosphere of solitude and tranquility win. At the exit from the garden there is a souvenir shop, almost a standard Thai theme in tourist places of this nature. It should be noted that everything is implemented more than worthy. Very all done cool, beautiful and with love.

Do not cease to be amazed at how Thais canbeauty and harmony of nature to direct, if you restrict their access to cement. Phuket Botanical Garden is a very good example to follow. Everything I saw there reminded me Royal Flora under Chiang Mai, only smaller scale. Well, if you like to take a selfie or are a fan of photographing beautiful landscapes and bright colors of nature, this is definitely your place. I want to take pictures in the Botanical Garden, simply because every corner looks kissed and it is obvious that they had a hand in it.

Even I, a man who calmly refers tothis kind of attractions (and, frankly, saw places and more serious scales), was still fascinated and took some hundreds of photographs. Part of the park is occupied by small gardens, stylized under some theme, such as the English garden, cactus garden, bamboo, Japanese, and so on.

Each garden is a small plot of 55 meters (not exactly measured), the exterior of which is designed in accordance with the name. There are decorative elements everywhere, many pots with plants, hanging plants, artificial reservoirs such as ponds, streams, there are even a couple of waterfalls.

Inside the Botanical Garden in Phuket there areown authentic cafe and around it a luxurious pond is broken, in which a lot of pink-red fish swims (if you know the name, 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 pictures like mine. Lure, by the way, is sold, and if you wish, you can please this fish kingdom.

The only thing that did not like when visitingGarden Botanist is that near the end of the path you go through the “Butterfly Garden”, and as usual in such gardens, you will not see butterflies here. Perhaps it was some special day and they were hiding from the heat, but no matter how much I looked around them and under the bushes, I did not find one. No one at all. 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 likenature Given the man-made grandeur around, a couple of nights it would be interesting to live here. Some bungalows in the resort overlook the windows and doors to the pond, so that in the absence of visitors in the garden you will expect some pretty interesting emotions. I would not say that spending more than three days here would be a sensible idea, still far from the sea. Rather, it is an option for an interesting experience and a variety of holidays.

Despite the fact that I attended the Botanical GardenPhuket at 15 o'clock and still properly shone the sun, it was cool in the garden itself - perhaps because of the fountains and ponds. But because of them, mosquitoes have devoured me, but in a crowded tourist place it is a rather dangerous topic and no one has yet canceled Money in Asia. So it makes sense to bring a repellent. And that is typical, in Thailand you usually will not find mosquitoes anywhere in the afternoon, they appear only after sunset, and here they were just darkness.

My resume is the coolest garden. You can spend hours looking around for interesting perspectives for photos, including selfies. The park is simply imprisoned for this business, a lot of benches or special mimish places for photos are equipped here. And all this man-made architecture is not bad inscribed in the outline of the botanical garden. Well, or vice versa, the garden harmoniously surrounds the place 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. A person who came to the Botanical Garden of Phuket precisely because of his interest in plants will also find something for himself. Although, of course, the price is high. But at the price level of all the other attractions of Phuket.

Information to visit

Prices for visiting the Phuket Botanical Garden: adult 500 baht, child - 300 baht.

The garden is open from 9 to 17 every day, after that the guests disperse and only the residents of the hotel remain, and the garden becomes its private territory.

Time to visit, I would recommend laying from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the time of day. At noon it is quite hot here due to high humidity, because the jungle - they are the jungle.

You can visit the bot garden during the excursion todon't go broke on a taxi. One of these excursions is called “Animal World of Phuket” and it also includes the Bird Park, the Krodilov Show and the Dolphinarium. Pretty rich and the child should like it.

I will not explain where I am. Better see the map, it will be so clearer. It is difficult to pass by, there is a large parking lot and an inscription with the name of the garden.
