It only takes a few hours to see the whole thing and half of it is inside with air conditioning which is great on days really hot days. Food in the cafe is... More

We passed this place last year when it was being built so we wanted to visit this year and were not disappointed. We were impressed that they had a rate for seniors. The butterflies were all around us but there were reptiles and bugs to provide variation and interest. The design is very attractive with water features and a huge... More

This is so worth it! We stumbled upon this by accident after our GPS got us lost and it was such an amazing experience. There are so many butterflies (along with a bunch of awesome small tropical animals). The exhibits are large and well kept and there's lots of helpful information.

The entrance fee is worth it, Elly was very informative and fun in guiding us. Penang is not just a place too eat, so give it a try!

The entrance ticket is 44 rm for adult, that is too expensive to see few spiders, monitor lizard and many insects. The only plus point is you can take photograph with many butterflies close up. For Grabcar, 4.2km is only 6 rm. Saanen Dairy Goat Farm is free. These are some reference of price in Penang. Not worth it!

First impression of the place is its impressive hanging greeneries the whole facade of the building. I think it adds an aura of what lies beyond. I have been there way before they have started on this new building. Overall, a great place to spend an hour or two with their beautiful collection of butterflies, bugs and other creepy crawlies....

Star newspaper run a long article about the founder of Entopia and his long journey from hard childhood to realizing his dream which got me interested in the butterfly farm. Bus no 101 took me straight there from Tanjung Bunga, it is a 100 m walk from its turning point. The whole building is covered in green walls with plants... More

We can spend a whole day here. There are plenty to see and learn about. The place is nicely done and we'll thought out. They have put pineapple pieces in certain areas so that u can easily take butterfly pictures. Besides butterflies, there are other things like lizards, spiders, insects etc. Loved it. Suitable for all ages.
