You need to enjoy the 30 min tuk tuk ride to fully appreciate the tranquility of this very pleasant butterfly experience. Ensure you take a guide with you on your journey to fully take-in the butterfly life.

This was a surprisingly good centre. The kids had their own guide who was fantastic at explaining the life cycle of the butterflies and moths, and happily answered the million questions from my children. The profusion of flowers and having butterflies sit on your brightly colored shirt definitely is smile inducing. Some may think hat the entry fee is expensive... More

This was a Highlight for us in Siem Reap. It's a small garden overloaded with beautiful tropical flowers and of course butterflies. You will really see a lot - in all stages. It was amazing to hear the caterpillars munching on leaves and see the the butterflies flying out of the breading closets. Our guide was perfect, he spoke English... More

Whilst this is not a large centre we (2 adults and 2 children 7 and 11) enjoyed the experience and the free tour by the staff. You are also able to have a drink or eat with the butterflies.

Just an addition to Banteay Srey District Tour aside from the Banteay Srei Temple and Cambodia Landmine Museum. Nothing is special if you have been in other Butterfly Centers in the world.

Stop for a cool relaxing stroll through the beautiful gardens and learn all about butterfly farming.

Due to being there during off season, early June, they told me they had fewer species of butterflies. It was clean and thoughtful, but likely more worth the five dollar fee during peak season.

Sad to say, I expected more. They are trying. but the complex is small, and the butterflies hiding.. yes I did see some, and yes they are trying.. I can not fault them.. but it will need more growth and expantion to become a serious worthwile tourist hub
