We asked our tour guide if we could visit the Butterfly Centre, which had not been a part of the itinerary. It was his first visit, too, and we were shown around by a very informative and knowledgeable young man. The butterflies and stick insects were fascinating. An excellent inclusion in a day's itinerary visiting Wats - it provides a... More

A great balance to temple viewing, the Butterfly Centre gives a very informative tour showing the life cycle of the butterflies and the chance to roam around the enclosed garden to spot the butterflies. It's not far from Banteay Srei temple, which is a trek in itself from Siem Reap, so its worth maximising the day by seeing as much... More

Watch where you step. This place is awash with butterflies, all happily living in a verdant garden of a variety of indigenous plants. Cherish the life here. Outside the sanctuary the butterflies and other wildlife are struggling to survive as illegal logging and timber smuggling devastates Cambodia's forests. Take your time on the trails. Look. Listen. Then look again. They... More

A low key visit, but a great stop off enroute to something else. The staff were very informative and lots of butterflies to photograph. Ideal to stop at if visiting another nearby attraction.

this is a tiny family run business on the way to the landmine museum..............get yourself a tuk tuk (approx $10AUD/half day) & go for a leisurely drive in the country side, visit both of these place.............they are both run by lovely local families who are really trying to make a difference

We did a similar butterfly park in loa but this one is even better as you get to see the stage of a butterfly's life in action from the egg stage through to the developed butterfly. Nice place very chilled the butterfly's are beautiful and the staff were more than helpful. Lovely spot.

Hopping to find a number of more exotic colourful butterfly but saw what you see in the streets. Maybe my expectations were wrong. Treat this as a donation to the cause

Located about 3 km from the Landmine Museum and on the road to Banteay Srei, this butterfly centre is a community development project. Proceeds are used to pay families in villages who are farming butterflies for the exhibits here. A small garden is home to a few varieties of beautifully coloured butterflies. A nice detour from temple hopping.
