My friend and I were skeptical at first to visit the butterfly farm because we might not get our P40 worth since we were traveling on budget. But upon meeting the butterfly caretaker whom we missed to ask for his name, the first 10 minutes was already entertaining and educational. He explained to us the lifespan of a butterfly and...

when we visited the facility, most of the poor butterflies have broken wings. Perhaps from too much taking of pictures. the "kuya" there will be happily and carefully catch a butterfly or two for that cute wacky photo ops with those lovely winged creatures.

Area was accessible but very few species of butterflies were seen at the time we visited. Quite disappointed.

The location itself is spectacular,, the entrance specially the bridge part.. but.. it's disappointing. There were a lot of butterflies hanging on the withering plants and flowers, most of them are dead. I am not sure why, but the caretaker is hunting down butterflies so he could get some live ones to stick somewhere in your hand, face, head, etc.... More

Quite frustrating, not even 1 single butterfly was seen here. Area was undergoing renovation which was understandable, but they should have at least put out a sign saying so. What a waste of time and effort, totally infuriating.

The butterfly garden is a pretty small place - but the staff here is really nice and sweet. They "planted" butterflies on all of us and we took cheesy photos! Later we just ambled around. 2 of our group were Biology teachers so they enjoyed seeing it all even more - since the staff then showed us cocoons where the... More

There are seasons where the butterflies fly and don't. It is best when they're all flting and landing in you face, shoulder, etc. The place is about 50 sqm only.

The place is a little bit run down, and not very big. Only a few people could go in at one time, and the they were catching the butterflies with net.
