For 5RM what kind of attraction are you expecting? In my opinion the animals/insects looked well tended to with plenty of food and water etc. The keepers where friendly and knowledgeable, we enjoyed our time here. We asked about the dead butterfly's and its because they do have a very short life span-especially once they have finished breeding (according to the keepers). The only unfortunate thing is that there isn't really a conservation focus so the Indigenous people are encouraged/paid to catch the wildlife and sell it to the park. Is still worth the visit.

The butterflies were very beautiful and were in abundance. We could actually hold the butterflies and touch them play and take pics with them.

Ok it is very confusing and Trip advisor has mixed them into one but there are 2 butterfly attractions in the same place. Literally beside one another is the Butterfly Farm and the Butterfly Garden. I was very confused when I read the reviews as to why there was so much discrepancy as to what people saw.

The Butterfly Farm was clean and well run. It looked like they are updating their facilities. The butterfly enclosure was large and the well-kept. Yes there where dead butterflies around but there always will be with that many butterflies in one place.

They had a large section of insects, scorpions, fogs and things to look at which also looked to be well feed and housed. Also cactus and flowers were lovely. Once they are finished with the updating it should be even nicer.

We did not have time to go into the other one but I would recommend the Butterfly Farm over the Garden.

As an animal lover, it was very difficult to see how badly kept the animals and insects were. Terrariums and cages were dirty and there was not enough sand and water in some of them. There were also a lot of dead insects and lizards. I cannot recommend this kind of place to anyone. I guess there are also other Butterfly farms in Cameron Highlands, I hope animals are treated better in them.

We visited this butterfly garden today. It costs 5RM for an adult to get in. The garden is not very big. There were beautiful butterflies flying there but there were also a lot of dead ones lying on the floor. Don't know if they have a short lifespan or they are not good being cared for. There are also some cages with snakes, lizards frogs etc. I was shocked to see how especially the guinea pigs rabbits and ducs were being kept...the guineas were on a wired underground and both them and the rabbits had no hay to eat from. At this place they sure can use some lessons on animal welfare and housing......
