The butterfly farm is a lovely place to visit. We came and a friendly guide showed us around and explained us everything. The place is well kept and very nice. We would not go there especially because it's a bit far but if you go to the animal conservation center or to the far temples it's a great place to... More

On the way to bantea srey temple and the landmine museum, about 10-15km from Siem Reap. Only costs 4$. Wonderful place with an owner who really cares about the butterflies and the environment. He is very nice and will readily share his knowledge with you if you are interested. They try to support rare species by breeding and releasing them.... More

A very nice break from all the Temple Visit. This place is well on the way if you plan to visit the Banteay Srei Temple or The Kulen Mountains from the Town of Siem Reap. There are many species of Insects in this little park not limiting to just Butterflies. There are Caterpillars, Moths, Stick Insects, Bees and Dragonflies hovering... More

Took a trip from Siem Reap to see this butterfly farm and the landmine museum, which is a few kilometres away. We arranged with a local tuk tuk driver to take us to both and return which cost 15 dollars. The BBC butterfly farm is a beautiful garden full of many different coloured huge butterflies and has a cocoon and... More

We combined a visit here with a trip to the Landmine Museum. As part of our entry fee we had our own guide who brought us around the centre, showing us butterflies (and moths), pupae, caterpillars and stick insects. It was really fascinating and there was a huge variety of butterflies, most of which I had never seen before. We... More

Very nice and informative place. The guide brought us to see different types of butterflies, butterfly eggs, caterpillars and cocoons. It's so interesting to see cocoons in different shapes and colors. Some are golden, some are green like germs, some are like sea horses, and if you touch them, they will move! A great learning experience for both kids and... More

The butterfly farm is very cute with lots of gorgeous butterflies and flowers. The entrance fee includes a short guided tour which was really interesting and not bogged down in scientific names. The tuk tuk ride from Siem Reap was really enjoyable as it goes through ride fields and rural areas. The butterfly farm can easily be combined with a... More

Well worth a visit on the way to Banteay Srey. The visit involves a quick tour as part of the entry price. I was shown the various stages of caterpillars to butterfly and when he opened the cage with cocoons out flew 10 butterflies. Lovely!

We visited during rainy season in July 2014. The front desk guy served as our tour guide and spent about 30 minutes showing us the various butterflies and plants, as well as discussing at length the life-cycle of the butterfly. Very informative. Apparently the time of year we visited usually has the highest butterfly population, so we were glad to... More

This is a nice little attraction with quite a few butterflies. The wet season is better for visiting as they are more active. Not only butterflies, but look closer at the plants and it's amazing what else you can find.
