We've been to a number of butterfly houses but this had some features we've not seen before. We had a guide who was friendly. They had live displays of the creatures in the various stages. The garden was nice and of course the butterflies were...More

We went here after reading the reviews and its true the 6$ was too much but, worth it. To maintain a place like this means money so we opted to just enjoy our walk and learn from the butterflies. Now that's more than 5$ plus...More

We stopped by this small butterfly centre on our way back to Siem Reap. Afternoon seems to be a bad time to visit since we hardly saw any butterflies. :( Our guide did try to help us find some though.

We stopped here on the way back from the landmine museum. We thought $5 was quite expensive but we figured we'd come a long way so may as well. The butterflies were stunning and had a generous, luscious netted enclosure. The centre claims to be...More

I was first trying to see some different Butterfly in this small lush garden, the local guide was excellent, it's so nice garden and natural place for many Butterfly living.
