It is a good place but not as much as it's spoken about. I liked cool wind and overall fresh environment. Worth visiting who're getting sick of humid weather of west Malaysia. I say you visit the place if you're working or living in Malaysia. Otherwise, skip it :)

Best value ever. The 'butterfly' garden is a bit of a broad term for a bizarre collection of insects, rabbits, lizards, snakes and even ducks. The butterfly area only has 2 species: the raja brooke and the yellow birding - 2 of the most spectacular. There are plenty of flowers - so great photo opportunities. The true star attraction is...

There are two butterfly gardens next to each other. We went to the older one which has been in existence for ages. The number of butterflies and their colours and size is truly amazing. There are also so many snakes in cages, beetles, stick insects, praying mantis, leaf insect, spiders, frogs, scorpions and geckos. All of the animals are well... More

The Butterfly Garden has a myriad of beautiful butterflies, but there is also a large collection of bugs, spiders, snakes,frogs and lizards. The garden has a good range of flowers also. This place is ideally suited to children and is not too expensive to take them. It was disappointing to see some of the animals (rabbits etc) in small concrete... More

We were the only visitors at that time and one of the staffmembers took us allong to show us the animals and to tell us all about them. We liked it. Of course compared with European butterfly/ insect farms improvements can be made, but I think the animals are well taken care of. As mentioned before, there are a lot... More

Worst butterflies' house I ever seen! I felt so bad while I was in it. A lot of animals are dead all over (butterflies, spiders...). Don't wast your money in it even just 5RM!!!! The only nice thing is that you can see beautiful snakes but their cages are so bad that you can't even enjoy it.

Nice little butterfly and reptile place. Small cages but better then most places in Asia. My little daughter loved it. Dont expect an European zoo like experience, but enjoy the small family runned place

It was only 5RM and we spent maybe 20 mins here. The butteflies were very pretty and different than what I have seen before. I wasn't into the reptiles/insects as much but there were some flowers growing at the back of the place that were really pretty.

For 5RM what kind of attraction are you expecting? In my opinion the animals/insects looked well tended to with plenty of food and water etc. The keepers where friendly and knowledgeable, we enjoyed our time here. We asked about the dead butterfly's and its because they do have a very short life span-especially once they have finished breeding (according to... More
