There were nearly as many Butterfly's in the gardens as there were in the Sanctuary. Garden Staff have grown selected shrubs to attract these wonderful insects. You can get real close with the camera. Very educational for the little ones.

This butterfly sanctuary is right in the middle of the Phuket Marriot Resort. Lovely when we walked past it to see the butterflies flying around outside just doing their thing.

Lots of butterflies and orchids. We were staying at the Marriott Beach and it is located within the hotel grounds. Worth a visit if you are nearby but it's quite small so I wouldn't go out of my way otherwise.
