We combined this with another visit out that way and if you were just travelling out to the park only it wouldn't be with it. Compared to other butterfly enclosures it is quite small. The day we went it was raining so we knew we wouldn't see much and they did tell us before we paid that because of the... More

This place offers a slice of peace and tranquillity between temple visits. It is a beautiful little haven which is yet another initiative that helps bring education to the forefront. We had a guide show us around and explain what the team do there. When we visited it was alive with a variety of species. Well worth 5$ even if... More

We visited Banteay Srai, The Cambodian Land Mine Museum and the Butterfly Centre all in the same trip as they are relatively near each other. We were taken round the Centre by a guide who was very knowledgeable and explained the life cycle of the butterflies. We were then left to walk around at leisure, which we did. It's not... More

This was one of the best places I've visited in Cambodia. We bought the special which was a pass,food and a drink for $8.50. Our guide that was included was funny and informative. There weren't a lot of butterflies but the ones that were there were beautiful and I am really happy with the photos I got of them. The... More

We decided to go to Banteay Srey and noted the butterfly farm on our way. When we got to the farm the guide was away. The staff member at the counter asked if would like him to take us through. He was very knowledgeable, we saw varying sizes of crysalise. Lots of beautiful butterflies even though a better time to... More

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.

I really enjoyed my visit. There were many butterfly, which I was told was due to the time of year I went (July). Early morning is the best time of day to go. I got there for opening time. The website said 4$ entry fee, but sticky tape on the board in the admission area read 5$. The free guide... More

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.
