I am from Melaka and I never fail to visit this butterfly park at least once a year, or when relatives and friends from outstation come. In the past, we’d visit Mini Malaysia, the Zoo, the Hutan Rekreasi etc. But my children loved this place the most and we’d normally spend a good two hours or more here! (I don’t mind because there are a lot of resting places around this park).
I’d say, the entrance doesn’t look too appealing but once inside, I can practically see my children’s faces light up. (even though we’ve been here many times). The love birds here are very cute and they seem to greet us with loud welcoming chirps all the time. I’ve also noticed that there have been a lot of changes to this place. For a start, there are a good variety of lizards at the front. We especially loved the beardy dragons and the really big iguanas.
My children loved the butterflies here. They will flutter very near us and even land on us occasionally. Sometimes, we’ll just sit in the enclosure for some thirty minutes just to see the butterflies fly around. During our last visit here (December 2012), we found that the management has built a new butterfly aviary. Now, there are two aviaries and if I’m not mistaken, I think they each exhibit different butterflies. Very nicely done with lots of flowers around.
My favourite thing to do here is feeding the colourful fishes in the pond. They sell fish food at the souvenir shop and we never fail to buy 10 packets every time! Then, we’ll have a really enjoyable time feeding the fishes, especially when they swim towards us.
We also enjoy the new crocodile area. Very spacious and natural too. I especially like the black alligators. The new snake section however, is only partly ready. I think they will be changing the whole snake section because the old place looked really run down. But we still get to see the really big snakes.
On the overall, I would highly recommend this place to families, especially those with children (even couples). And if you're not in a hurry, just let the children enjoy the overall layout of the place and let them spot the different types of butterflies they have and see how beautiful they really are...
