Cheap but your money is still going to support animal cruelty. The whole establishment is scurfy, dirty and untidy. This I could overlook. What was upsetting was the treatment of the animals. In one corner of the butterfly enclose was a chap opening envelopes and releasing butterflies from them. I assume they put the chryalis into envelopes to hatch but... More

We enjoyed the butterfly garden. Many others have complained about the cages with the animals. We only saw rabbits that were in a cage that we thought was not suitable most other creatures were insects and snakes. The butterflies were beautiful and there were many of them and the flowers at the rear were lovely. We thought this was well... More

This small garden has few butterflies that we saw, but an amazing collection of reptiles snakes and insects.Our guide was able to let us hold some and get close encounters something we had never seen before.Some insects were larger than we imagined having only seen pictures before. Well worth a short visit

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
