STOP 4 on TRIBAL TOUR

It was our lunch stop, and also and opportunity to have a look at the Orchids.

This is one of a few Orchid & Butterfly farms located around Chiang Mai. It was set in a lovely, lush, tropical garden setting, very attractive.
Orchids are here, lined up in rows, not a lot in bloom when I was visiting. I wouldn't call this a big farm.
Evidently, there is a small area for Butterflies somewhere, I missed it, didn't find that area.

We had our Buffet meal in the Restaurant, a very nice large open building. There was plenty of choice, and food was good.
Beware of the Banana Fritters though, they were not in Batter like I was expecting!!
Thai people eat them differently, so my mouth watering expectations were not met!!
You had to buy your own drinks............
I bought a Pineapple crush which was delicious, cost 60t/b.

You can also purchase butterfly and orchid jewellery as you pass on your way out.

If it's the Butterflies you want to see it's best to avoid the cold season (Nov - Feb).

OPEN from 7.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
I do not know the admission charge as it was included in the Tour
