Since 2006, under the leadership of the Ministry of Forestry, an orchid farm has been planted in the National Lake Park. Now more than 300 species of Burmese orchids and foreign orchids such as Cymbidium, Cattleya, Phalaenopsis, Dendrobium and Oncidium orchids are displayed.

It is estimated that there are 725 groups of orchids in the world and about 2000 species. Some say there are about 1,750,000 orchid species, while others say there are about 3,500,000 orchid species.

The butterfly museum displays domestic and foreign butterflies and insects, and photography is prohibited. It is reported that the light coming from the camera can fade the color of the rare butterflies, which is why it is prohibited. 2 hours have passed at the orchid farm, so now I have to rush to the tour bus. If the readers want to visit, instead of going by taxi, they will be able to study the entire National Lake Park by making a private plan.
