This is a must-see if you are curious about the life cycle of butterflies & moths of Thailand. Staff are enthusiastic & knowledgable. Bonus is meeting the stick insects!

A relatively small enclosure. Best visited out of the heat of the day as most butterflies will not be flying at midday.

I don't believe there's a restaurant at the site. I don't know the specific answers to your other questions, but you can take very inexpensive 'cyclos' all around the city.
