“Beautiful, well worth a visit”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Initially we were a little sceptical at the entrance fee, 27RM each, but once we stepped outside into the enclosure we immediately felt it was worth it. We were surrounded by beautiful butterflies everywhere we looked. They were all a different array of stunning colours. Don't worry about taking photographs as they are constantly landing on the shrubs, flowers and fruit and will stay still long enough to take a couple of photos. They will also land on you. The alligator turtles are pretty amazing too! I don't think you will regret it if you take a trip here.

“Beautiful butterflies and lizards”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

It took us almost 45 minutes to get there via Rapid Penang bus, but the trip is worth it. Entrance fee is RM 18 for Malaysians (reasonable enough). Never seen so many butterflies in my life and I'm sure it's a great place to visit if you have family with small children. One thing I would like to comment is the green lizard's glass cage needs to be cleaned from inside because it's a bit blurry/dirty.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Arrived to find exotic colourful butterflies and exciting worms (!) everywhere. If you stood still long enough they even settled on you! Kids had great fun looking for all the different types - even those that cunningly looked like leaves! As you head for the exit you discover the exhibition with loads of cabinets with more butterflies and creepy crawlies. Def. recommend for families with kids and will def. kill a few hours for you all.

“Fun and interactive for kids, won't take up more than 2-3 hours”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Fun day out but quite far to get too from George Town
Can see this would be a great place to bring children, perhaps combine it with escape next door, bring your swimmers!
Given the traffic it took us over 1 hr 30 minutes to get here from George Town, then the bus back was packed and equally as long
If it was just the butterfly gardens ( which are interesting but not much more than 40minutes entertainment) then I'd say the journey wasn't worth it but they have lots more interesting information on plants, lizards and insects also and some very good interactive shows for children
