The owner of the farm personally meets groups of tourists at the entrance and gives each guest an orchid. Those who wish after acquaintance with the collection can purchase any other flower they like in cut or in the form of a sprout in a bulb; you can buy a whole bouquet as a gift. Wholesale and retail prices are quite affordable. Flowers purchased in advance at the Phuket Orchid Garden can also be delivered to the hotel on the day of departure at the indicated address. In addition, visitors can purchase jewelry in the form of an orchid. For their manufacture, real fresh flowers are used, which are placed in a special galvanic solution of 24 carat gold. Going to the Orchid Garden, you need to remember a few simple rules:
