The butterfly house was much smaller than expected. There was lots of butterflies and we did get some nice photos. The butterfly house was well kept. Unexpected to then see a whole lot of snakes, spiders and other random animals on display. The bunnies and the turkey look a little sad. I think overall it was worth going.

The Butterfly Farm itself is not really that big, it does not have a huge collection of living butterflies, the interesting things of the farm are a quite good collection of beetles that are on display; they had on display, Cheirotonus arnaudi, Odontolabis femoralis femoralis, and some other interesting species. It is an interesting trip to visit the butterfly farm... More

The butterflies are in terrible shape, most of them have broken wings and just sit at the ceiling trying to get out. Other animals, like rabbits or turtles sit in small areas that are really dirty. The animals don't look very lively. The turkeys have a ridiculously small cage. Also the whole concept is not really understandable as it seems... More

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 :)
