A colorful place for visit

A wide and varied collection of butterflies, insects etc in their natural habitat. Worth visiting even on a short trip.

This place looks unkept, and the butterflies and fish/turtles not looked after too well. There was very little variation in live butterflies, and it really wasn't worth the quite high entrance fee. The exhibits inside are probably better than the butterfly park itself.

This place apparently promotes the appreciation of butterflies. Well step next door into the shop and you will have the opportunity to buy a large selection of dead framed butterflies from all over the world. I was informed these were all 'wild caught' and had the approval of the relevant Malaysian Govt Dept. They even had a Papilio zalmoxis the... More

I suppose my expectations were too high. It's a hike to get there, and then there is about 20 minutes of things to do. The butterflies are pretty, but that's about it.

A little disappointed as there is too few butterfly here. I expected they would have plenty of butterflies arround in the park. However, if you're not rush in time you could pay a visit here, the view inside is ok - just too few butterfly.

Its a terrible excuse for a butterfly park. We saw a total of 5 butterflies and trust me, I've seen more butterflies in my garden and the open areas around my home. What a waste of time and money. Very sad excuse for a butterfly park. They should visit the real butterfly parks in the US/Canada to see how nice... More

Hot and humid in the enclosure and it was morning! Sure, buildings are a bit run down, but the gardens / plants are well maintained. Lots of butterflies, but unfortunately none landed on us. Able to get close up photos when they landed on flowers but some move pretty quickly. My daughter found one on the ground with a broken... More

The place gets quite hot and humid in the summers as it is covered with a low height net. The place is near KL bird park so you can visit it on your way back to your hotel from the bird park. Not recommended if you are only planning to go there as there are only few activities there. There... More
