If you love flowers, orchids in particular, then a visit to the Phuket Orchid Farm is not to be missed. Here you will not only find all manner of orchids but some unique souvenirs too.
This orchid farm is around five minutes from Kata Beach and is easily accessible from Phuket luxury villas in Thailand. Located on Soi Suksan 1, the site is open from 09:00am to 05:30pm daily.
OMG orchid moments
With over 1,500 orchid species and hybrids on display, the Phuket Orchid Farm is bound to offer lots of OMG moments! Look to take one of the special garden tours that are available and which offer a free bouquet of orchids too.
Memories to take home
One of the unique features here is the fact that you can buy cut flowers which are packed in such a way as that they can be transported overseas by air travel. You can even pick them up a day before you leave Phuket; staying at nearby accommodation options such as Kata Rocks will help you save time on travelling back and forth.
Those in search of a souvenir that will last longer can consider purchasing some distinctive orchid jewellery. Crafted by hand utilising actual orchids, these 24k gold plated ornate creations make for a most unique fashion accessory.
