It was a pleasant discover. The butterflies are not the only attraction of this place. We were pleased to discover many insects, snakes and lizards. When we went the place was clean. Nonetheless seeing the mice alive in the snake box was... A harsh reminder to the life circle.

I was really sad seeing those animals. I know the standard of zoos and farms are very bad in Asia and this was no exception. The animals looked depressed. I didn't see the animals move at all, just sitting still. Couldn't tell which were alive and which were dead. Most horrible parts was the pets (rabbits, gunnea pigs, ducks, birds)... More

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
