(Phem) the tour guide, speaks amazing English and is so full of knowledge it is very impressive.. Here it is evident that they are very passionate about the life cycle of a butterfly and it showcased with the gorgeous garden. This is a peaceful place to visit and has an amazing space to sit and drink and eat if your... More

Cool cafe and fantastic break from temple hopping. Good cause (eco tourism, local jobs, conservation, etc) with enthusiastic guides. Very peaceful place to watch butterflies and enjoy nature. Photography folks should love it! $4.

I went to the butterfly park yesterday with my tuk tuk driver and was pleasantly surprised by the staff who had so much knowledge. He spoke really good English, and was so engaging. Gave us a good run down of the background of the park, the different species of butterflies and showed us the lavae stage etc. Very impressed with... More

We went to break up a day at the temples after visiting Banteay Srei on our way back to Angkor Thom. Our tour guide was exceptional and so knowledgeable. The entrance fee is just $4 for adults and is used in part to create a sustainable butterfly project for locals to earn a living. They have a caterpillar area, chrysalis... More

I visited the Butterfly Centre on my way back from Banteay Srei and the Landmine Museum. Luckily, there was a guide there who showed me around because without him, I could see being disappointed. He did a wonderful job of explaining things I otherwise would have missed (brand-new butterfly eggs!) and answered every single question perfectly. If you're not interested... More

This is a relaxing way to spend an hour in cambodia. About 20-40 minutes away from the main hotels, here you can walk around the garden and see the butterflies, and there is also a guided tour where you learn a little bit about butterfly life cycles and such. Be sure to visit the landmine museum too, which is just... More

Luckily we noticed the Butterfly Garden while travelling between temples and were very fortunate to visit with a very knowledgeable guide who not only educated us on the butterflies and other insects in the gardens but also had a very wide understanding of the interactions between the butterflies and the native flora. The collection of pupae and the larvae as... More

The Butterfly Centre is a perfect way to break up a day of temples and is on the way to Banteay Srey temple so a great stop off. The place differs from the normal butterfly houses I have been to but this makes it unique. It is set in a beautiful garden / ecosystem underneath a net as opposed to... More

Lovely little oasis. Toddler loved it. No tour guide when we were there, but we were shown the caterpillars by one of the staff. Worth a visit if you are visiting Banteay Srei.
