Unless you are obsessed with either there is no point in going here.
Luckily we were just passing through on our elephant trek excursion. We couldn't stay here more than 5 minutes. I did not see 1 butterfly different than the usual and the orchids were nice but all the same.
There was an introduction on orchids lasting about 2-3 minutes then you can go do whatever you want. My advice is get a couple of photos and jump back in the van as we did. Much better things to do in Chiang Mai.
Part of our tour package, we were brought to the butterfly and Orchid Farm. Nothing much for the butterfly side, only spotted 1 caterpillar :( The orchid farm, at the same area was better. Smell the frangrance of the orchid flowers...
We visited a orchid farm on the way to the Hill tribes just outside of Chiangmai. The flowers were just divine and is a definate must see activity on your programme
This was basically a nursery where they planted and did research on the different species of orchids. It could be a good short stop-over for people who like plants and flowers, orchids especially.
