Located within the Camp John Hay Park in Baguio City. Tickets were sold at the gate which is very minimal. It is just a small enclosure which houses several flowering plants. The species of butterflies are so few. So off from my expectations.

As many others have stated, the butterfly enclosure is very small, if you went in and walked non-stop you would circle it and be back at the entrance in about 15 seconds. Its a fenced area about 25’x25’. Though there was quite a lot of...More

A bit disappointed to see only a few butterflies. It's a butterfly garden but didn't actually look like it. It's a small place too. I guess it's not worth the time and effort. Sorry.

This review is quite late. Visiting Camp John Hay will also give you a chance to spend some time at the Butterfly Farm. Worth a few hours and loads of snapshots.

I think the number of butterflies won't take all the fingers from both my hands to count. Plus, the ones that we did see look all tired and worn out almost as if their wings are about to fall apart. In my opinion, people shouldn't...More

There is nothing to see. The entrance fee is not worth to visit a small greenhouse with couple of butterflies.
