It is a small place, but excelente for its purpose, to see a bunch of butterflies. And the owners are so lovely and you can buy a pulp to bring home and see your own butterfly born.

As a family travelling with four kids, we decided to go to Butterfly Kingdom. It was a small butterfly garden, but it was very nice, and we really enjoyed it. The kids wanted to go back already the next day!
