“Better than most”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

I went with my daughter and we really enjoyed it. If you take your time here you can get great value for money and super impressive photographs! I've been to a few butterfly farms, especially in Malaysia and this one is by far the best. You must check it out not only for the butterfly but the beautiful gardens they are housed in, complete with some ponds. We didn't have a guide but I'm a nature geek so we were ok. You can check out the lifecycle just by viewing the different stages live in action. As a bonus there were a few other insects and arachnids on display.. beetles, tarantula, stick insects etc. If I was more prepared I'd have brought sandwiches so we could have a picnic in there, it's so peaceful.

“Nice to see but not a must do”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stopped on the way back from Banteay Srei, was okay but if you are pressed for time I wouldn't stop , we weren't in a hurry so enjoyed having a look , not as many butterflies as I thought there would be.

“butterfly buzzy !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Stopped for a short visit on way back from temples and found it to be full of butterflies with a young guide who showed us the different species of butterflies, caterpillars, pupae, scorpions, stick insects and beetles. worth the modest admission fee and allows you to see some great species close up.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We arrived late in the day and they were about to close, but we still got to have a wander round and enjoy the beautiful butterflies. It's a photographers dream. Worth a visit for families.

“A Relaxing Change from Temple Hopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The Banteay Srey Butterfly Centre is a small, but beautifully maintained facility. We were given an excellent brief tour by a very enthusiastic guide, who obviously loves his work with butterflies - and subsequently we were able to roam about and make our own observations (and take photos).
I found this a very relaxing break from the 'high culture' temple hopping around Angkor Park.
