The farm is about a 40 minute tuk tuk ride from Siem Reap but is well worth the effort. Entry is a modest 4 dollars and for that you get a guided tour explaining the life cycle of the butterfly and the work they are doing at the centre. Our guide was very helpful and happy to answer any questions... More

Great to see so many butterflies with such ease and the different life phases. Stick insects also interesting. Price $4 each. Only a short tour to a small site.

SO much enjoyed my visit here. Also found the informative guide to be an excellent standard and liked that you could roam at your leisure after the short 15 min tour. Got some great shots of butterflies without any time constraints. It's about 20 kms from Siem Reap, but the journey is just as good as the destination as I... More

I'd previously visited a butterfly center in Penang and it had an amazingly diverse population, but the posterboard descriptions were lifeless. Here, there are no posterboards, but a truly bright and inquisitive guide who will try to answer your every question as he shows you around! I hadn't planned on coming here....it was just on the way to a temple... More

We decided to visit the Butterfly Centre for something a little different and for our daughter who loves Butterflys. We ended up learnign alot about Butterflys from our very warm and friendly guide. We watched a Butterfly be "born" and held it while its wings were dry. My husband and I enjoyed a cold drink in the lovely cafe area... More

We dropped in to break up temple visits. The staff are very nice local folk. They include a tour with admission (~$4) that helps you identify butterflies and allows you to check out the hatching cages full of chrysalis and cocoons. I LOVED all the orchids and beautiful plants growing there as well.

After learning about the tragedies associated with landmines, this was a nice break. Have a wander around the garden and a drink in the cafe with the butterflies- lovely spot :)

I thought I would take my 2 little girls to go and see some butterflies. The drive was about half an hour from Siem Reap central, and it was a nice drive seeing some of the country side. The garden is obviously covered by netting so the butterflies don't escape, but maybe there is a hole somewhere because there weren't... More

I visited here on the way to Banteay Srei temple. It was a welcome change from seeing stone and whilst my guide was very informative there weren't many butterflies there. It's sweet and cheap though so I'd recommend a visit. Just don't have too high expectations!
