Mae Rim Bai Orchid and Butterfly Farm and The best buffet restaurant
Bai Orchid and Butterfly Farm is a lot to see when in Chiang Mai as you get to experience the beauty of nature as the butterfly’s flutter over the orchids. The colorful setup, nestled in an environmental setting, gives guests a glimpse into the life cycle of these insects and the plants that they love so dearly.
If you are interested in orchids, then this is the place for you. There are thousands of orchids being grown at the farm and there are also enclosures which you can enter to view hundreds of beautiful butterflies. There is a small waterfall located inside the enclosure which makes this a stunning location to take photos. You can purchase an orchid before you leave at the on site nursery and can even enjoy a meal here in the large dining room. The food is served buffet style and is replenished regularly. The food is generally vegetarian with noodles, thai curries, vegetables and spring rolls. They also serve coffee and sweets after the buffet.
