We weren't sure if we should stop, we'd just waited for our lunch for over an hour and we were all grumpy. But all three of us, very early in on our visit, remarked on how the stop had made our day. And what really made it amazing was our guide Wichet. Knowledgeable, engaged and attentive, we could have stayed... More

The butterfly Centre is a wonderful place to call in if you are in the area. Ask about a ticket deal when paying entry you may be able to get lunch and a drink for only an additional three dollars. Offering a free guide (you can explore the garden freely) you can spend as long as you want taking photos,... More

This butterfly center is a great way to spend a few hours. The tuk tuk ride through the countryside is worth the trip alone! Our guide at the center spoke good English and was informative. My three boys (9,12,14) all enjoyed it too.

If you love nature, this is worth a stop-by if you have time and if you are travelling with kids. It is situated along the way if you on the way back to city after Banteay Srei visit. The guided tour is informative, and the kids can learn about the differences about butterflies and moths; and their cycle of life.... More

Plan to eat lunch here. The food is great and there is room to eat IN the canopy. Having a butterfly land on my elbow mid-tea-sip is pretty incredible! It's beautiful, the staff is knowledgeable. It's also a great plan to follow up the Cambodia Land Mine Museum with a visit here for the emotional reset.

The centre is quite small with a limited number of butterflies. The highlights were the enthusiasm of the staff and being able to see the different life stages of the butterflies. Link it with a trip to Banteay Srey temple, as otherwise it's probably not worth the longish journey from Siem Reap.

I am so very pleased that I took the time out to come and visit. I've never seen so many butterflies in one place. To also see the dedication and love of the people who work here. Spectacular. Oh and if you're a photo buff bring all your camera gear.

I knew of the centre before my trip and had decided I wanted to visit. The Tuk Tuk to the site is near the Landmine museum, and the ride up was through some beautiful countryside. The centre is full of butterflies in differing states of growth. You are assisted around the enclosure by a guide who provides helpful and informative... More

The Butterfly Centre is located near the famous Landmine museum. It makes for a nice stop along the way to the Landmine Museum. The tranquility of being surrounded by the many butterflies is very peaceful. Be sure to bring your camera.
