This has to be one of the worst tourist attractions I've ever seen! So you expect to see butterflies at a sanctuary, right? Other than the ones we saw dead between two panes of glass, our total count was 3. For the whole place. 3 butterflies. And a hundred bad jokes from the guide.

It was raining the day we went and the butterflies were in hiding! Only one or two were attached to branches and as butterflies as essentially very lazy, in particular the Filipino black and yellow giant butterfly, we were able to carefully handle them and have them attached to our hair or faces for photo opportunities. Meanwhile, we took an... More

Cool butterflies, place is very well taken care of. Entrancefee is next-to-nothing. Count on spending about 30 minutes here. The tourguide actually sounded like he knew what he was talking about. Prepare for a few very corny photo's with giant butterflies etc.

Various types of buetterflies roam inside the santuary and many a time many if them came on our heads and also it was a great experience and... More

We visited the simply butterflies conservation center as part of our tour and had a great time! The tour guides are fantastic, very informative and engaging. They had some great jokes too and kept us laughing. The butterflies are just beautiful, we had many that landed on us. Definetly try the homemade icecreams at the end they are just delicious!

Although I'm not a fan of butterflies, it's very enjoyable to come here. You will learn a lot about butterflies and will have the opportunity to hold one and some caterpillars too. Kudos to the guides because they are funny and will engage their visitors to listen. I laughed out loud whenever I remember them talk. They know camera tricks... More
